Thomas Nelson Community College unveils online incident reporting tool
Thomas Nelson Community College has launched an online incident reporting platform which will allow students, faculty and staff to confidentially report potentially harmful incidents.
The new platform is called Threat Assessment, Incident Management and Prevention Services, or TIPS.
The on-campus tool allows individuals to anonymously report suspicious activities involving assault, weapons, illegal drug or alcohol use, harassment or intimidation, vandalism, threats of violence, suicide risk, sexual harassment, abuse and other incidents.
“TIPS is helping TNCC become more aware of threats and incidents on campus,” TNCC Police Chief Kelvin Maxwell said in the press release. “Campus police are ever vigilant, but if we don’t know about at-risk individuals or suspicious activities, we can’t prevent them. TIPS empowers anyone on campus and within the community to come forward and anonymously share information with us.”
Once a tip is received, the college’s threat-assessment team is notified so members can determine the appropriate response.
The TIPS web link can be found at www.tncc.edu.
