victim including privacy, medical response, mental health counseling, and contact of significant others, should the victim so require. Crimes should be reported to Campus Public Safety to ensure the victim of appropriate services, to ensure inclusion in the annual crime statistics report, and to aid in providing timely warning notices to the community, when appropriate.
Campus Public Safety do not have arrest power; all criminal incidents are referred to local Police (Kirkland Police Department, Redmond Police Department, King County Sheriff's Department, and/or Duvall-Carnation Police Department) who have jurisdiction on or adjacent to the Kirkland, Redmond, and Duvall Campuses, respectively. While the College has no written Memorandum of Understanding (MOU's) with the Kirkland, Redmond, or Duvall-Carnation Police Departments and the King County Sheriff's Office, LWTech Security maintains a highly professional working relationship with these agencies.
Lake Washington Institute of Technology Campus Public Safety urges anyone who is the victim or witness of any crime to promptly report the incident to Campus Public Safety or local Police. Because Police reports are public records under state law, Campus Public Safety cannot hold reports of crime in confidence. Confidential reports for purposes of inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics can generally be made to other Campus Security Authorities. All crimes should be reported immediately. Please report any suspicious activity or person you may see loitering in any campus building, common area, or parking lot. In addition, reports may be made to any LWTech official at (425) 739-8100.
