This is a test of the Title IX Resources. No incidents have occurred.

If you have information about this crime, please call the Stanford University of Public Safety at (650) 329-2413.

Stanford University does not tolerate sexual assault, sexual misconduct or sexual harassment. The university encourages anyone who has been sexually assaulted or subject to other forms of sexual misconduct or harassment to report the incident to university officials.

The information about this incident is being reported to you in accordance with the Clery Act. The remainder of this email provides information about preventing and reporting sexual assault.

? Ignorance of the law or of university policy concerning sexual assault, sexual misconduct and sexual harassment is not a defense.
? Receive affirmative consent from your partner before engaging in sexual activity.
? Perpetrators may attempt to use alcohol to facilitate a sexual assault. Statistically, the majority of reported sexual assaults occur while one or both parties are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Alcohol or drugs may impair one?s ability to judge whether or not consent has been given, but it is never an excuse for choosing to violate another person.
? There are a number of drugs that may be added to beverages with the intent of altering the consciousness or incapacitating a person without their knowledge. These drugs are particularly dangerous when combined with alcohol and often produce amnesia, leaving a victim unclear about what occurred afterward. These drugs can facilitate criminal activity; most often acts of sexual misconduct or sexual assault.

If you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, or if you aren’t sure whether you or someone you know has been sexually assaulted, there are a number of resources available to you at Stanford to inform you of your options and to support you in whatever path you choose to take in addressing the incident.

*Community Alert

This Community Alert is to notify the Stanford community that there has been a recent spike in thefts from vehicles. The thefts have occurred at various locations and times on campus. Several of these thefts have occurred from vehicles parked at Nixon Elementary School after school hours and on weekends. The method of entry into the vehicles has been through unlocked doors or by smashing a window. To help avoid becoming a victim, the Stanford University Department of Public Safety (SUDPS) is encouraging individuals to follow a few simple practices:

- Do not leave valuables exposed inside a vehicle, including shopping bags with the store name or logo printed on the side. You should take them with you or secure them in the trunk.

- LOCK the doors and roll up the windows whenever you will be away from your vehicle.

- If your vehicle is equipped with an alarm system, activate it each time you leave the vehicle unattended.

- Park in lighted and visible parking lots and streets, when possible.

- Avoid parking next to or between larger vehicles than yours that can provide concealment for a thief (vans, SUVs, trucks).

- Most importantly, dial 9-1-1 immediately if you observe any suspicious activity or behavior (e.g. an individual loitering around vehicles, peering into vehicles, and/or trying door handles), or if you are a victim of a theft.

If you have any questions, concerns, or would like additional information on crime prevention, please call SUDPS at (650) 723-9633 (M-F, 8am to 5pm) or email us at police@stanford.edu.

Community Alert – Online Blackmail Scam

The Department of Public Safety has been made aware of fraudulent online activity impacting individuals at Stanford. As a result, campus police are warning users of internet-based video chat programs (such as Skype) about an online blackmail scam.

To carry out the scam, the offender contacted the individual victims on a social networking site using an assumed identity. After establishing a relationship, the offender convinced the victims to engage in intimate acts which the victims believed were taking place in a private video chat session. Unbeknownst to the individual victims, the victim’s actions were recorded by the suspect. Later, the offender blackmailed the individual victims with the threat of releasing the recorded footage to their social media contacts unless payment was made (usually via a wire transfer). The suspect(s) did send the recorded material of at least one of the victims to others without the victim’s consent.

To avoid becoming a victim, we recommend the following:

- Refrain from video chatting (e.g. webcam) with, or sending photos or videos to, anyone whom you do not know and trust.

- Assume any private video footage or images you transmit over the internet could become public without your knowledge or consent.

- Set social media preferences to private, including your contact list.

- Make sure that your software and systems are up-to-date and that you are using up-to-date security software.
Be aware that anything you do on the internet, including video and voice calls, can be recorded.

- Be cautious about people whom you meet online. They may not be whom they claim to be.

Revealing personal details online is extremely risky. If you are a victim of any scam or fraud, please report it immediately to the Stanford University Department of Public Safety at (650) 329-2413 (24/7) or your local law enforcement agency.
