Report a Crime, Policy Violation, or Suspicious Activity

Reporting Crimes or Suspicious Activity

If the crime is in progress on campus, call the 911 for Bristol Tennessee Police Department, and once you have contacted the police, please contact the Security Office at 423.652.4333. This will facilitate the police arriving promptly at your location.

Non-emergency reporting assistance and information are available by calling Security at 423.652.4333 or the Bristol Tennessee Police Department at 423.989.5600. You may also come into the Security Office located in Parks Hall to file a report in person.

In addition to reporting a crime in person, the King University Security Department provides online non-emergency crime reporting for the campus community at https://king.omnigo.one/CESIReportExec/olr/. Within 48 hours of submitting an online report, a King University Security Officer will contact you to verify the report details and ask any questions if necessary. Please provide proper contact information to ensure that the report can be filed.

Online reports are not official reports. Only the printed copies signed by the reporting officer and containing a King University Security Department issued case number are considered the official copy. These online report forms are intended to facilitate the report process by providing officers with pertinent information about the incident in a timely manner. An official report will be prepared and submitted by the officer through the reporting system.

Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, Stalking, and Discrimination Reporting

King University is bound by federal and state laws, including Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, and Title VII, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of multiple categories such as race, color, national origin, ethnicity, creed, sex, or religion. Sexual harassment, including acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination. King University is committed to complying with all such laws, but moreover, to providing a safe campus environment for all.

Report any behavior believed to be a violation of the Relationship Conduct Policy should be made to the Assistant Title IX Coordinator (Benny L. Berry, Parks Hall Room #32, blberry@king.edu, 423-652-4705) or the Title IX Coordinator (James P. Donahue, E.W. King Building, Room #16F, jpd@king.edu, 423-968-1187).

Threatening or Concerning Behavior Reporting

Any member of the King University community—students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, or University neighbors—can report a concern if they become aware of threatening behavior or are worried about potential violence to someone at the university in general. The earlier that the appropriate University officials know about a threatening or potentially dangerous situation, the more we can do to help reduce risk.
