Report a Crime
Encouraging Accurate and Prompt Crime Reporting
Community members, students, faculty, staff, and guests, both victims and witnesses, are encouraged to report all crimes and public safety related incidents to appropriate authorities in a timely manner. Crimes should be reported to ensure inclusion in the annual crime statistics and to aid in providing timely warning notices to the community, when necessary.
How to Report Criminal Offenses
Any suspicious activity or person seen in the parking lots, or loitering around vehicles, or inside buildings should be reported to the Office of Campus Police.
To report a crime or emergency on campus or at the Wayne Executive Jetport:
• 9-1-1 (emergencies only)
• Campus Police at 919-739-7050 or 7050 from a college phone
• Emergency Call Box telephones located in the Parking Lots and at the tennis courts. They are located on light poles, and each has a blue light indicator. If you need a Campus Police Officer, push the red button on the emergency call box, and it will automatically notify the Office of Campus Police about where you are and let you communicate directly with the Campus Police Officer who is responding to your call.
If assistance is required from the local law enforcement agencies or fire department, Campus Police will contact the appropriate unit.

Police reports are public records under State law, therefore, the Office of Campus Police 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 Campus Security Authorities or to the Counseling Services Department as identified above. Confidential reports of crime may also be made to Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255.
If a sexual assault or rape should occur, staff on the scene, including Campus Police, will offer the victim a wide variety of services. Referrals for confidential assistance may be made to Wayne Uplift Resource Association. Wayne Uplift’s crisis line number is 919-736-1313. The National Sexual Assault Hotline is 1-800-656-HOPE (4673).
Voluntary Confidential Reporting
The WCC Office of Campus Police encourages anyone who is the victim of or witness to any crime to promptly report the incident to the police. Because police reports are public records under State law, the Office of Campus Police 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 as identified above. Confidential reports of crime may also be made to Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255.
Counselors and Confidential Crime Reporting
Campus “Professional Counselors,” when acting as such, are not considered to be a campus security authority and are not required to report crimes for inclusion into the annual disclosure of crime statistics. As a matter of policy, they are encouraged, if and when they deem it appropriate, to inform persons being counseled of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary basis to any of the Campus Security Authorities listed above, for inclusion into the annual crime statistics.
Staff of the Counseling Services Department inform students of the procedures to report crime to the Office of Campus Police on a voluntary basis, should they feel it is in the best interest of the student.
Professional counselors are defined as: “An employee of an institution whose official responsibilities include providing psychological counseling to members of the institution’s community and who is functioning within the scope of his or her license or certification.”
