SKYCTC is one of 16 colleges in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS).  Our colleges are as diverse as the communities in which they are located.  You will not only receive a world-class education at a price you can afford, but you also will be in an environment that will prepare you to be successful.

Choosing a postsecondary institution is a major decision for students and their families. Along with academic, financial and geographic considerations, the issue of campus safety is a vital concern.  In 1990, Congress enacted the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 (Title II of Public Law 101-542), which amended the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA). This act required all postsecondary institutions participating in HEA’s Title IV student financial assistance programs to disclose campus crime statistics and security information. The act was amended in 1992, 1998, 2000, 2008, and 2013. The 1998 amendments renamed the law the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act in memory of Jeanne Clery.  It is generally referred to as the Clery Act.

Beginning on July 1, 2013, the Clery Act requires colleges and universities to track and report statistics for domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.  It also requires that colleges provide sexual assault and prevention training to all students and employees on an annual basis.

Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College is responsible for the preparation of the Annual Security Report in cooperation with Legal Affairs, Campus Security Authorities, and local police agencies. The statistics include alleged and attempted crimes. All crimes reported in “good faith” and occurring on-campus, on public property surrounding our campuses, or in off campus college-owned buildings or property is recorded for inclusion in the annual crime statistics. This report provides statistics for the previous three academic years. The statistics are requested annually from local law enforcement agencies, and submitted to the Operations Manager of Security and Safety for collection and analysis. For statistical purposes, crime statistics reported to any of these sources are recorded in the calendar year the crime was reported.

The report includes statistics submitted by Legal Affairs, Student Affairs, Human Resources, Campus Security Authorities, and local law enforcement agencies. These reports are reviewed, and if reportable under the Clery Act, are included in the annual statistics. Police arrest statistics and campus disciplinary referral data for weapons violations, drug violations and liquor law violations are analyzed by Campus Security to avoid duplicated reporting. SKYCTC does not have any student organizations at off-campus locations.  Therefore, incidents related to off-campus activities of student organizations are not reported.

All of these statistics are gathered, compiled and reported to the campus community via the Annual Security Report which is published each year. Campus Security submits the annual crime statistics published in this report to the Department of Education (ED) each year. The statistical information gathered by the Department of Education is available to the public through the ED web site.

By October 1 of each year, all enrolled students and employees receive an email notification regarding a summary of the content and the availability of the report via the college website, as well as how to request a printed copy of the report. Prospective students and employees receive information regarding the report from the SKYCTC security web-page. For more information regarding campus safety or the contents of this report, contact Campus Operations Manager of  Security and Safety at 270-779-0411 or daniel.harris@kctcs.edu.

Campus Security Authorities are defined as individuals having significant responsibility for student activities, including administrators and student services personnel such as, Deans, Directors, Legal Affairs, athletic team coaches, and faculty and/or student advisors. If these individuals receive a report of a crime listed under the Clery Act, they are obligated to report it to campus security for the purpose of disclosure in the annual crime statistics. Crimes should be reported to the Title IX Coordinator (sexual violence only) and Campus Security.

SKYCTC does not have a campus police department.  No campus personnel, including security, have law enforcement authority. If physical measures are needed to ensure the safety and security of persons on campus, state or local police agencies shall be contacted. While there are no Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with local or state enforcement agencies, SKYCTC maintains a strong working relationship with state and local police through training, meetings and communicating with local and state police agencies in the investigation of criminal offenses.

Off-Campus Student Organizations

SKYCTC does not have any recognized student organizations off-campus locations.

Student Housing

SKYCTC does not operate student housing facilities. 

Missing Students

Missing students should be reported immediately to the security department. When a student is reported missing on the campus, the security department, along with representatives from the Student Services division, work together to attempt to locate the student on campus by one or more of the following methods: camera surveillance, class schedule and information from instructors. If the student does not show up for class and cannot be reached by phone, the security department or the Director of Student Life and Engagement will call the local police department and request a welfare check.

Procedures for Campus Crime Reporting

Students, staff, faculty and guests are strongly encouraged to accurately and promptly report all criminal actions or other emergencies occurring on campus to the SKYCTC Security Department or local police agencies, if necessary. Crimes should be reported for purposes of assessing the crime, distributing potential timely warning notices, and disclosure in the annual crime statistics. Crime reporting is critical as it may prevent future crimes, protects the community and increases the likelihood of apprehension and adjudication of perpetrators.

Although Campus Security strives to maintain a safe and open environment for victims to report crimes, individuals may not feel comfortable contacting the police.  In these instances, reporting to other campus security authorities is available. As an example, sex offenses should be reported to the college Title IX Coordinator.

Cell Phone Use: Emergency 9-1-1 calls made on campus from an IP phone are routed to local law enforcement. We recommend you program the campus reporting number into your cell phone to reduce emergency response time and provide quick dialing in any emergency.

Procedures for survivor/victim or witness to report voluntarily and/or confidentially

If you wish to report a sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking incident on a completely confidential basis, you may report the crime to the Title IX Coordinator located on the Main Campus in building L room 119H or by phone at 270.901.4348.

If a crime survivor/victim or witness chooses not to file a police report or to pursue action against the perpetrator within the college process, they may still consider making a report. SKYCTC students may report crimes on a voluntary basis by emailing the Title IX Coordinator and Director of Student Life and Engagement at david.travis@kctcs.edu.

In certain circumstances, the victim may request that the Title IX Coordinator or a designee file a report of the details of the incident without revealing the victim’s identity. The purpose of a report is to comply with the wishes of the victim/survivor. This will allow the Title IX Coordinator and/or other officials to take action to protect the future safety of the crime survivor/victim and others. With this information, the Title IX Coordinator can potentially determine a pattern of crime and alert the campus community to potential threat or danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crime statistics.

Professional or pastoral counselors

SKYCTC Counselor and Disability Service Coordinator is available on Main Campus in building G room 127 by phone at 270.901.1088

The following are off-campus counseling resources:

  • Family Works Counseling Center
  • Hope Harbor
  • Barren River Area Safe Space Inc.
  • Talley Family Counseling
  • Life Skills
  • Alliance
  • Pastoral referrals available upon request.

In some cases, Security department will make timely warning reports to members of the campus community regarding criminal activity. The criminal activity must be serious in nature and likely to pose an ongoing or continued threat to the safety of students, staff, faculty and guests. The decision to make a timely warning report will be made by the College President or his/her designee. Notification is generally made through a campus-wide email bulletin to all members of the campus community.  Flyers are also placed in the common areas of the buildings used by the campus community.  Timely warning information may be posted on the SKYCTC website and/or digital banners.

It is the consistent practice of the SKYCTC community to notify the Title IX Coordinator and/or designee, who then confers as necessary with appropriate KCTCS System Office administrators, Public Relations, Legal counsel and neighboring law enforcement agencies after a violent crime or Clery Act crime is reported.  This is done to determine if the circumstances and facts represent a serious or ongoing threat to members of the community.

SKYCTC Security in coordination with Marketing, will prepare and arrange to disseminate a timely warning including pertinent information and resources that are available. Warnings may be developed in partnership with appropriate campus departments, KCTCS Office of General Counsel, and KCTCS Security and Crisis Management. The crime bulletin is reviewed and approved for release by Campus Security, Marketing and Communications, KCTCS Office of General Counsel. This collaboration is necessary for crimes of a more serious or immediate nature in order to prepare consistent information for release on the website and/or digital signage to the campus community.

Campuses may be accessed between the hours of 7:30am and 4:00pm. Any faculty or staff member needing access to the campuses beyond operating hours, may request access from the Operations Manager of Security and Safety at 270.779.0411. The Campus Security department patrols the campus during and after operating hours. The campus grounds are monitored by security cameras and alarm systems. The Operations Manager of Security and Safety and his designees respond to all campus alarms. Any student requesting campus access after hours must contact the security department for prior approval. 

All special events must have prior authorization. Contact the Operations Manager of Security and Safety at 270.779.0411 for information on special event policies and procedures. Events may require additional approval, staffing and coordination with campus security, parking, and traffic needs.

Maintenance of campus facilities 

SKYCTC makes every effort to ensure that the campus facilities and grounds are designed and maintained to promote safety, prevent crime, and minimize hazardous conditions. Attention is paid to the design and maintenance of facilities, landscaping and exterior lighting. The maintenance department maintains the buildings and grounds. Campus facilities are inspected on a regular basis and repairs impacting safety and security are made promptly. Campus groundskeepers are mindful of security and safety concerns, keeping vegetation controlled around lighting fixtures and along campus walkways and roadways. Strategies and concepts of crime prevention through environmental design are considered in the design and construction of new facilities.

Security regularly patrols the campus and reports malfunctioning lights and other unsafe physical conditions to the Maintenance and Operations Supervisor for correction. We encourage community members to promptly report any security concern, including concerns about locking mechanisms, lighting, or landscaping to the Maintenance and Operations Supervisor at 270-901-1072

Information Sharing

SKYCTC security awareness and crime prevention programs have an overall goal of creating and maintaining a safe environment to support the academic mission of the college and ensure the well-being of campus community members. The goal of sharing this information is to inform students and employees about security procedures, the practices to promote safety and eliminate or minimize criminal opportunities, and to encourage students and employees to take responsibility for personal and community safety.

Programs and Prevention

SKYCTC informs students about specific campus security and personal safety practices. A common theme of all awareness and crime prevention during online orientation is to encourage students and employees to be aware of their responsibility for their own security and the security of others. Security offers safety and crime prevention seminars for the students upon request.

SKYCTC security will provide safety escorts for faculty, staff and students. These safety escorts are available to walk or drive you to and/or from on-campus locations. For a safety escort contact the Campus Security department at the respective campus location. Use of the safety escort service is encouraged to enhance personal safety. Walking with a friend or in groups and staying in well-lit, frequently-traveled areas is also a recommended safety practice while on campus.

Security patrols the campus on a continuous basis and monitors crime through social media and video surveillance. Security frequently sends out safety emails to all students. These emails range from personal safety to steps to take in the event of an on campus threat. Monthly emails are sent to employees offering them free online safety and security courses.

KCTCS Drug and Alcohol Policy

KCTCS is committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for its students, faculty, and staff. KCTCS has defined conduct in relation to the unlawful possession, use, dispensation, distribution, or manufacture of alcohol or illicit drugs. Conduct which is in violation of this definition poses unacceptable risks and disregard for the health, safety, and welfare of members of the KCTCS community and shall result in disciplinary action up to, and including, expulsion or termination.

As a recipient of federal grants and contracts, KCTCS gives this notice to students, faculty, and staff that it is in compliance with, and shall continue to be in compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendment of 1989. Students, faculty and staff are herein notified of the standards of conduct which shall be applicable while on KCTCS property, on KCTCS business, and/or at KCTCS sponsored activities.

Sanctions

Under KCTCS policies and procedures, students who violate this standard of conduct are subject to disciplinary action from a minimum of a warning to a maximum of expulsion from KCTCS. Faculty and staff are subject to disciplinary action from a minimum of a warning to a maximum of termination from KCTCS employment. Under state and federal drug laws, the gravity of the sanction depends on the classification of the controlled substance, the particular activity involved (possession or trafficking which includes manufacture, sale, and possession with intent to sell), and whether or not multiple convictions are involved. Under Kentucky law, the most severe penalty for a drug law violation involves trafficking. On a first offense conviction, one may receive a fine of up to $10,000.00 and/or a sentence of up to ten years in the penitentiary; for subsequent offenses, the penalties may be doubled.

Under federal law, for simple possession of a controlled substance, one may be imprisoned for up to one (1) year and/or fined up to $1,000.00. For subsequent offenses, one may be imprisoned for up to three (3) years and/or fined up to $5,000.00. Under federal law, one may be fined up to $8,000,000.00 and/or may be sentenced from not less than 10 years up to life in prison for drug trafficking. For violations of other federal drug laws, one may receive life in prison or the death penalty. Under both state and federal laws, one may suffer the loss of whatever property (house, farm) or possessions (vehicle) which one may have used in the drug trade. Sanctions for violation of state alcohol laws vary from a fine of $10.00 to $2,000.00, a sentence of forty-eight (48) hours to twelve (12) months in jail, and/or suspension of one's operator's license.

Drug and Alcohol abuse programs

Students are encouraged to contact the Director of Student Life and Engagement at 270-901-4348 for information and appropriate referrals. Semi-Annually SKYCTC offers drug and alcohol prevention seminars. The College has an Employee Assistance Program available to all employees should assistance be needed for drug or alcohol abuse. This program is provided free of charge to employees and is confidential. SKYCTC security will partner with local law enforcement to enforce all laws regarding the: possession of, use of and sale of illegal drugs and alcoholic beverages, along with State underage drinking laws and State and Federal drug laws.

Sexual Misconduct Policy Statements

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System is committed to creating and maintaining a community where all persons who participate in college programs and activities can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of sexual misconduct. Therefore, KCTCS will not tolerate sexual misconduct as defined in this procedure. Such acts are prohibited by KCTCS policy and procedure, as well as state and federal law. Persons found to have more likely than not violated this procedure are subject to penalties up to and including expulsion or separation from KCTCS, regardless of whether they are also facing related criminal or civil charges before a government agency or court of law.

The KCTCS Sexual Misconduct Procedure applies to KCTCS students, faculty, and staff, as well as third parties who interact with the KCTCS community, and all KCTCS -sponsored programs, events, and activities, regardless of where the alleged sexual misconduct occurs (within the United States). KCTCS will respond promptly and effectively to reports of sexual misconduct, and will take appropriate action to prevent, to correct and, when appropriate, to discipline behavior that violates this procedure on sexual misconduct. KCTCS also will take steps in the event of sexual misconduct to remedy its discriminatory effects on the complainant and others, if appropriate. Provisions for the investigation and resolution of allegations are covered in the procedure and its appendices.

The KCTCS Sexual Misconduct Procedure governs KCTCS’ prohibition of sexual misconduct, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking. These policies and procedures address the legal definition of those terms, the definition of consent, safe and positive options for bystander intervention, information on risk reduction, and policies and procedures should an incident of sexual misconduct occur. 

Through enforcement of policy and by education of students, employees and volunteers, KCTCS seeks to prevent, correct, and discipline behavior that violates our policies and has a detrimental impact on our college community. To ensure a harassment-free workplace, KCTCS mandates the following:

  • All employees complete applicable components of the mandatory KCTCS Harassment-Free Workplace Training program when initially hired and annually thereafter; additionally, volunteers must complete the training program when they begin their service.

  • All employees, students, volunteers, customers, vendors, visitors, and other individuals shall engage in proper behavior and interactions.

  • All supervisors, managers, and administrators shall take appropriate steps to report alleged incidents of harassment.

Upon receiving a complaint or becoming aware of suspect behavior, KCTCS officials shall take appropriate follow-up action for any alleged incidents of harassment. All students, employees and volunteers, particularly supervisors, have a responsibility for keeping our environment free of harassment. Any student, employee or volunteer who becomes aware of an incident of alleged harassment, whether by witnessing the incident or being told of it, should report it to an immediate supervisor, the Title IX Coordinator, human resources staff, or the designated management representative with whom they feel comfortable.

When supervisors or managers become aware of alleged harassment, it is KCTCS policy that they immediately notify the college Title IX Coordinator, the college Human Resources Office, the KCTCS Human Resources Office, or KCTCS Office of Legal Services in order for the claim to be fully investigated.

Description of Primary and Ongoing Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Training:

In order to raise awareness around the issues of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and sexual assault KCTCS offers online training to all students and employees using Safe Colleges. All KCTCS colleges provide the training in the Fall semesters to students. Employees are required to take the training at the time of hire, and again in the fall of each year.

Reporting Procedures for Sexual Misconduct:

KCTCS encourages any individual who has suffered an incident of sexual violence to seek immediate assistance from a medical provider and/or law enforcement. This is the best way to ensure that evidence is preserved and that a timely investigation and response are initiated.

https://policies.kctcs.edu/administrative-procedures/3-3-1A-P.aspx

How and  to whom

KCTCS strongly encourages all individuals to report incidents of harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking to their college’s Title IX Coordinator and/or local police. Reports can be made to the Title IX Coordinator by phone, email, or in person. Reports can also be made through Ethics Point

Options about the involvement of law enforcement

All individuals who make a report of sexual misconduct to their college’s Title IX Coordinator have the right to decide whether to file a report with local law enforcement. They may choose to notify local police independently, request assistance from the college to file a police report, or decline to notify such authorities. While KCTCS ultimately respects the rights of the complainant’s decision to involve local police authorities there may be some circumstances that pose an ongoing threat to the health and safety of the campus community that may warrant a police investigation. In these rare cases, a complainant still maintains the right to decide whether or not to cooperate with those authorities.

Rights of Victim's - Institutional Responsibilities for EPOs

It is the responsibility of students, faculty and staff with emergency protective orders to bring this to the attention of college administrators. When this occurs, the college will attempt to assist in maintaining this protective order by calling local authorities should an individual violate this order. If an individual is violating an emergency protective order on a KCTCS campus, we encourage the EPO holder to notify police and/or campus security immediately.

Initial Assessment

The initial steps for resolution of a complaint are the same whether the Respondent is a student, employee, or guest. Employee and guest Respondents will be processed in accordance with KCTCS employment policies and procedures. Student Respondents will be processed in accordance with the KCTCS Student Code of Conduct and student policies and the Hearing Procedures for Student Respondents.

In every report of sexual harassment or misconduct, KCTCS will make an immediate assessment of any risk of harm to individuals or to the campus community and will take steps necessary to address those risks. These steps may include interim protective measures to provide for the safety of the individual and the campus community.

After consideration of these factors, KCTCS has a range of response options, from informal resolution, which may include a remedies-based approach (reserved for less egregious violations) up through the disciplinary process. If the violation warrants, the SO Title IX Committee will refer the matter for investigation. The initial assessment may take one to three business days.

Accommodations/Protections:

Students and employees who file claims of harassment have a variety of accommodations and/or protective remedies available to them. In addition to receiving a copy of the SKYCTC sexual harassment policy, one or more of the following may apply to the situation:

  • referral to counseling services and other resources
  • rescheduling of exams or assignments (in conjunction with appropriate faculty)
  • no-contact letter
  • temporary class schedule reassignment
  • provision of an escort on campus property
  • temporary work reassignment

Sex Offender Registry

In compliance with the Federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000, KCTCS, through the Kentucky State Police, makes information available to the campus community concerning registered sex offenders who may be employees or students at your college. The Kentucky State Police provides sex crime offender registration information to the public through the Sex Offender Registry website. Search the KSP Sex Offender Registry Website.

According to the Kentucky State Police, this website is for public safety and awareness. Pursuant to KRS 525.070 and  525.080, use of information from this website to harass a sex offender is a criminal offense punishable by up to 90  days in the county jail. More severe penalties apply for more severe crimes committed against a sex offender.

KCTCS Security and Crisis Management assists the SKYCTC Campus Security department with developing, maintaining, and implementing emergency operations plans, developing and conducting exercises, hazard and risk education, and building partnerships with external response agencies. The System Office Crisis Management Team staffs the System Office Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and may be activated to provide resource and support services to SKYCTC EOC, if needed. The System Office Crisis Management Team is equipped to provide the following services to SKYCTC when requested:

  • Public and media relations support
  • Facilities support
  • Temporary alteration of administrative and business policies and procedures
  • Procurement of resource and support services
  • After-action incident evaluation

Not all incidents will require an activation of the EOC. For smaller, routine campus incidents, response operations may be managed virtually by several members of the Crisis Management Team. Emergency Action Plans detailing evacuation routes are provided in every building and classroom at SKYCTC. SKYCTC regularly works with local law enforcement to ensure any incidents reported in the area, that may affect the college, are communicated. SKYCTC security works collaboratively with local EMS professionals to respond appropriately to emergency situations.

Emergency Notification

SKYCTC uses Safety Notification Alert Process (SNAP) for  the quick communication of information. Students are automatically signed up for SNAP when they enroll at SKYCTC. Faculty, staff and interested individuals can sign up to receive SNAP messages. Security encourages students and employees to keep their current cell phone number in the SNAP system.

In the event of an incident that requires immediate notification to the campus community, a SNAP Alert will be issued that will provide text, voice, broadcast and e-mail messages to all members of the SKYCTC community.  Face-to-face communication will be used in the event technology fails.  

SKYCTC has a SNAP team and uses a consultation approach with local first responders and/or the national weather service to confirm an emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of the campus community. Upon confirmation, SKYCTC will, without delay, determine the content of the notification and initiate SNAP, unless issuing a notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

The College President in consultation with the Operations Manager of Security and Safety and/or designated personnel, when possible, will determine the content of the notification, considering the scope of the notification and the segment of the community at risk (e.g. targeted areas, campus wide, building specific).

The following personnel have the authority to activate an emergency notification in the event of an emergency, immediate threat, hazardous condition, natural disaster or other critical incident: 

SNAP Team Members

  • President/CEO
  • Provost
  • VP of Student Services
  • VP of Business Services
  • Dean of Allied Health and Nursing
  • Maintenance and Operations Supervisor
  • Operations Manager of Security and Safety
  • Public Relations Director
  • Associate VP of Marketing
  • Information Technology Director
  • Campus Directors

SNAP’s can be sent through the desktop site or on the go using the mobile app. SNAP is not the only means the College uses to communicate emergency information to the campus community. SKYCTC uses their website, local TV, radio, newspaper, and various social media. Follow-up information will be provided to the SKYCTC campus community using some or all of the systems described above. The larger community, parents, neighbors, and other interested parties can access emergency information through the SKYCTC website or the media.

Training, Drills, and Exercises

SKYCTC campuses conduct evacuation and shelter drills, exercises and appropriate follow-up training per semester.  These activities are designed to improve emergency response on an ongoing basis. After action report briefings and corrective action plans are developed and conducted for each exercise or activation. Documentation of past exercises which include exercise descriptions, date, time, and whether the exercise was announced/unannounced is available for review upon request. Contact the Operations Manager of Security and Safety at 270-779-0411 for more information or to make a request. 

All students and employees are sent reminders via email a day or two before the drill, detailing the proper steps to take in the event of a shelter or evacuation incident. The Security department documents and files each SNAP Alert test in its after action-report. This includes a description of the drill or exercise, date, time of test, and how the test was announced or if it was unannounced. For more information, contact the Security department at 270-790-9304.

Disclosure and Format of Annual Crime Statistics

SKYCTC maintains a Daily Crime Log of all crimes reported or investigated to the department for the most recent 60-day period. The information includes the date, time, location, nature of the crime and disposition of the complainant. The log is available in-person during the hours of 7:30am to 4:00pm Monday thru Friday. The log is also posted to the SKYCTC website. In the event that there is an issue with the electronic log at SKYCTC, KCTCS has a centralized site where information can be obtained.

The Michael Minger Act is a Kentucky state law that requires public colleges and universities as well as private institutions licensed by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) to report campus crimes to their employees, students and the public on a timely basis. The Minger Act requires a public crime log, to be available on-line, recording incidents known to campus police and other campus officials, as well as special reports when there is an ongoing threat to the safety of students and employees. Schools must also report their crime statistics annually to the CPE which has responsibility for developing formats for reporting crime statistics and for ensuring that annual reports are received from the institutions. SKYCTC Michael Minger Act Report for 2020 is based on the activity reported for calendar year 2019.

Crime Statistics

The Clery Act requires each institution to disclose crime statistics that occur on three types of property: On Campus, Non-Campus, and Public Property areas.  The statistics must be gathered from campus security, local law enforcement, and campus security authorities.
