1. Statement

The College encourages anyone who is the victim or witness to any crime, or who witnesses suspicious behavior, to promptly report the incident to Hendrix Public Safety by calling 501-450-7711, using one of the Blue Emergency phones, or visiting the Public Safety office. These methods should also be used to promptly report other types of emergencies to Public Safety for inquiry and investigation.

Members of the community are also encouraged to promptly report crimes to the Conway Police Department when the victim of a crime elects to, or is unable to make a report. This can be done by calling 911 or 501-450-6120 for non-emergencies. Tips can be called in anonymously at 501-450-4135, or tips can be texted anonymously by sending a text to CRIMES (274637) using Keyword "CONWAY" at beginning of the message.

Students who are victims of a crime and do not want to pursue action within the College Conduct system or the Criminal Justice system, are encouraged to make a confidential report to the Dean of Students Office (SLTC 209, 501-450-1222) or to a counselor in Hendrix College Counseling Services (501-450-1448). Students who choose this confidential option maintain the right to report the incident to Hendrix Public Safety or Conway Police in the future. If and when they deem appropriate, Hendrix counselors encourage students they are counseling of procedures to report crimes on a voluntary, confidential basis for inclusion in the Clery report.  

2. Campus Crime Report

Each year the College will publish an annual security report in accordance to guidelines of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (1998).  The Dean of Students Office and the Office of Public Safety prepare this report.The Campus Crime report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Hendrix College; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security. Those wishing to report crimes voluntarily and confidentially for inclusion in the Clery report may do so by contacting the Dean of Students Office.
