Victims are encouraged to report all incidents to either Lincoln College Campus Security or the Lincoln Police Department, regardless of how insignificant the crime may seem. Security or Police Officers will respond at any time of day or night to meet the victim, take a report, investigate the incident, and provide assistance.

Lincoln College Security officers are trained to investigate most crimes; however, Lincoln Police Department will typically be contacted for crimes of a more serious nature.
