It is nearly impossible to articulate all the crimes or fact patterns requiring police intervention. These are guidelines. Each situation will be looked at individually with decisions being made placing the safety of the Hampshire Community and the safety of the individual/s involved as the top priority.
Considerations will typically include: safety assessment, patterns, seriousness of incident, and the student’s wishes.
Interactions between Hampshire College and the appropriate local police:
Incidents where APD/HPD assistance requires prompt notification: in progress crimes where life and safety are at imminent risk.
Incidents whereby the Department of Campus Safety and Security may need additional support or to simply notify APD/HPD.
This is not an inclusive list, but is intended to provide examples.
