  • Crime Statistics
    This data collection is required by the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and the Higher Education Opportunity Act. The crime statistics represent alleged criminal offenses reported to NEO Campus Police Department/or through local law enforcement agencies. Therefore, the data collected do not necessarily reflect prosecutions or convictions for crimes. Because some statistics are provided by non-police authorities, the data are not directly comparable to data from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting System which only collects statistics from police authorities. The fire statistics are reported only on-campus student housing facility or facilities, and the fire statistics are for the NEO Miami, Oklahoma campus only.

    Reporting Sexual Violence

    All forms of sexual harassment, including sexual violence, should be reported, no matter the severity. Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College’s primary concern is safety; therefore individuals should not be deterred from reporting even if the use of alcohol or other drugs was involved.

    The college encourages victims of sexual violence to talk to someone about what happened so they can receive support and so the university can respond appropriately. The college offers both confidential and non-confidential reporting options. It is important to be aware that different individuals who victims can contact for assistance following an incident may have different responsibilities regarding confidentiality, depending on their position. Under state law, some individuals can assure a victim of confidentiality, depending on their position. Under state law, some individuals can assure a victim of confidentiality, including counselors and certified victims’ advocates. In general, however, any other college employee cannot guarantee complete confidentiality, unless specifically provided by law. Colleges must balance the needs of the individual victim with an obligation to protect the safety and well-being of the community.

    Different employees on campus have different abilities to maintain a victim’s request for confidentiality.

    • Some are required to maintain near complete confidentiality; talking to them is sometimes called a “privileged communication”.
    • Other employees may talk to a victim in confidence, and generally report only that an incident occurred without revealing any personally identifying information. Disclosures to these employees will not trigger a university investigation into an incident against the victim’s wishes. This report is done through a Clery Report and does not include the victim’s name or other identifying information.
    • Thirdly, some employees are required to report all the details of an incident (including the identities of both the victim and alleged perpetrator) to the Title IX Coordinators.

    Confidential Reporting Options

    Confidential reporting options provide students with the ability to confidentially report and discuss an instance of sexual harassment, including sexual violence, without their information being shared with others. Please not confidential reporting limits the university’s ability to response to incidents.

    Professional Counselors

    Professional and licensed counselors who provide mental-health counseling (including those who act in that role under the supervision of a licensed counselor) are not required to report any information about an incident to the Title IX coordinator without the victim’s permission. These individuals are also not required by the Clery Act to report.

    Health Services

    Health services staff member are confidential reporting options. They are not required to report any information about an incident to the Title IX Coordinator without a victim’s permission. However, they will report incidents without any personally identifiable information to NEO Police for the purpose of the Clery Act.

    While these professional, non-professional counselors, and health providers may maintain a victim’s confidentiality, they may have reporting or other obligations under state law, such as mandatory reporting to law enforcement in case of minors, imminent harm to self or others, or requirement to testify if subpoenaed in a criminal case.

    If the college determines that the alleged individual(s) pose a serious and immediate threat to the campus, the university may issue a timely warning to the community. Any such warning will not include any information that identifies the victim.

    Non-confidential Reporting Options

    The Board of Regents for Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges and the Clery Act require all employees (excluding counselor, health care providers and victim advocate) who become aware of an instance of sexual harassment including sexual violence to report the instance to NEO Police. The victim’s name should not be reported to the police without the victim’s permission. The report should include the nature, date, time and general location of an incident. This is a limited report that includes no information that would directly or indirectly identify the victim. This allows for the university to track patterns, evaluate the program, and develop appropriate campus-wide response.

    When an instance of sexual harassment including sexual violence is reported to a “responsible employee,” a student can expect the incident will be reported to the college’s Title IX Coordinator or Student Discipline Coordinator. A “responsible employee” is an employee who has the authority to redress sexual harassment including sexual violence, who has the duty to report incidents of sexual harassment or other student misconduct, or who a student could reasonably believe has the authority or duty. Examples include but are not limited to faculty members, advisors, employees in student services offices and anyone in a supervisory role.

    A responsible employee must report to the Title IX Coordinator of Student Discipline Coordinator all relevant details about the alleged sexual harassment or sexual violence shared by the victim including names, date, time and specific location of the alleged incident.

    To the extent possible, information reported to a responsible employee will be shared only with people responsible for handling the college’s response to the report. A responsible employee should not share information about the victim to law enforcement unless a victim requests.

    When a victim tells a responsible employee about an incident of sexual harassment or sexual violence, the victim has the right to expect the college will investigate the alleged sexual harassment, end any sexual harassment, prevent the sexual harassment from recurring, and educate on sexual harassment.

    Before a victim reveals any information to a responsible employee, the employee should ensure that the victim understands the employee’s reporting obligations and if the victim wants to maintain confidentiality, then the victim should be directed to a confidential resource.

    Requests for Confidentially from a Non-Confidential Reporter

    If a victim discloses an incident to a responsible employee but wishes to maintain confidentiality or requests that no investigation or conduct action be taken, the college must weigh that request against the obligation to provide a safe environment for all students, including the victim.

    If the university honors the request for confidentiality, a victim must understand that the college’s ability to meaningfully investigate and respond to the incident may be limited.

    Although rare, there are times when the college may not be able to honor a victim’s request in order to provide a safe environment for all students.

    When weighing a victim’s request for confidentiality or that no investigation or conduct process be pursued, the following will be considered:

    • The increased risk that the alleged respondent will commit additional acts of sexual or other violence, such as:
      • Whether there have been other sexual violence complaints about the same alleged respondent;
      • Whether the alleged respondent has a history of arrests or records from a prior school indicating a history of violence;
      • Whether the alleged respondent threatened further sexual violence or other violence against the victim or others;
      • Whether the sexual violence was committed by multiple respondent;
      • Whether the alleged respondent has a history of arrests or records from a prior school indicating a history of violence;
      • Whether the alleged respondent threatened further sexual violence or other violence against the victim or others;
      • Whether the sexual violence was committed by multiple respondents;
    • Whether the sexual violence was perpetrated with a weapon;
    • Whether the victim is a minor
    • Whether the college possesses other means to obtain relevant information of the sexual violence against the victim or others;
    • Whether the victim’s report reveals a pattern of perpetration (e.g., via illicit use of drugs or alcohol at a given location or by a particular group)

    The presence of one or more of these factors could lead the university to investigate and, if appropriate, pursue conduct action. If none of these factors is present, the university will likely respect the victim’s request for confidentiality.

    If determined that the college cannot maintain a victim’s confidentiality, the university will inform the victim prior to starting an investigation. The college will remain ever mindful of the victim’s well-being, and will take ongoing steps to protect the victim from retaliation or harm and work with the victim to create a safety plan. The college may not require a victim to participate in any investigation or conduct process. Retaliation against the victim, whether by students or university employees, will not be tolerated.

    Reporting to the Police

    The college strongly encourages individuals to report sexual violence and any other criminal offenses tot the police. This does not commit a victim to prosecute but will allow the gathering of information and evidence. The information and evidence preserve future options regarding criminal prosecution, university conduct actions and/or civil actions against the perpetrator.

    On campus incidents can be reported to the NEO Police Department in the Library Administration Building Room 002 or at 918-533-1243. If the incident occurred elsewhere in Miami, it can be reported to the Miami Police Department at 129 5th Ave. NW, Miami, OK 74354 or 918-542-5585. If the incident happened anywhere else, it can be reported to the local law enforcement with jurisdiction in the location where it occurred.

    Please know that the information reported can be helpful in supporting other reports and preventing further incidents.

    Reporting to Student Discipline

    Anyone can report instances of sexual harassment or sexual violence to the Student Discipline Coordinator in the Student Union, Student Center Room 128E or at 918-540-6494. A complaint should be filed as soon as possible, preferably within 180 calendar days of the incident. A complaint can be filed in person in the Office of Student Affairs or by email to the Vice President for Student Affairs at aishmael@neo.edu.

    If either the victim or the respondent are students, the incident will be addressed through the Student Discipline process once a complaint is filed.

    The college strongly encourages individuals to report any instance of sexual harassment and sexual violence to the police.
