A rape was reported to a University administrator March 22, according to the Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) crime log for March 23.The alleged rape occurred on an unknown date in 2014 in a Notre Dame residence hall, according to the crime log entry.The Jeanne Clery Act, originally known as the Campus Security Act, is the federal law that details how and what universities and colleges are required to disclose in terms of crime on campus, according to the Clery Center for Security on Campus. In accordance with this regulation, students did not receive an NDSP crime alert email detailing the allegations when they were reported to the University.Both the daily crime log kept by NDSP and the crime alert emails the Notre Dame community receives are the result of regulations in the Clery Act. The Clery Act requires universities and colleges to “issue timely warnings about Clery Act crimes which pose a serious or ongoing threat to students and employees.” These crimes fall into three major categories: criminal offenses, hate crimes and arrests and referrals for disciplinary action. Because the Clery Act does not dictate a timeframe or requirement for a “timely” warning, crimes that are reported a significant amount of time after they occur may not meet the timeliness standard. NDSP judges on a case-by-case basis whether or not the reported incident necessitates an alert based on its timeliness and whether or not the offender in question poses a threat to the community at large.Information about sexual assault prevention and resources for survivors of sexual assault are available online from NDSP and from the Committee for Sexual Assault Prevention (CSAP).Tags: Clery Act, NDSP, NDSP crime log, sexual assault, Title IX

– other disciplines promise to be similarly excitingTHE selection of teams desirous of participating in Sunday’s PNCR 60th Anniversary Day of Sports/ Family Fun Day is becoming increasingly difficult for Coordinator of the futsal segment, Wayne ‘Harry’ Griffith.According to Griffith, who spoke with the event coordinator yesterday, more and more teams are calling him, asking to be part of the day’s activity and the overwhelming response is creating headache for him, since he can only accommodate a certain number because of the one-day nature of the celebration.“I’ve had representatives from at least fifteen teams contact me via telephone, asking that they be part of the tournament and it is proving a difficult task for me to tell them no, but because we are only playing for one day, I’ve had to refuse some of them,” Griffith stated.The most popular referee in the futsal format informed that originally he had selected eight teams each from Georgetown and Linden, but has had to increase that number to accommodate three more teams from the respective communities to make it a total of twenty-two teams that will vie for top honours throughout the day.Griffith said Georgetown’s composition will include Sparta Boss, who is undoubtedly the most popular team in the shorter format, while new kids on the block, Future Stars, are also included in the lineup.The other teams invited are Leopold Street, Tiger Bay, Albouystown ‘A’, Back Circle, West Front Road, ‘Gold is Money’, Bent Street, Hustlers, OL Skool Ballers, and Broad Street.They will join Linden’s Silver Bullets, High Rollers, Swag Entertainment, Plantain & Cheese All Stars, Magics, Team 25, BlueBerry Hill, Mike’s Stars and Amelia’s Ward Russians.Meanwhile, a similar sort of buzz is permeating the dominoes, athletics and basketball disciplines.The domino fraternity is challenging the futsal group to see which discipline will provide more support for the day’s activity and according to the event’s organisers, it is too close to call.The caretakers of the sport promise to have teams from all across the country compete in the competition; so it is clear that the community of Linden will be flooded by Guyanese from every Region.The organisers are reminding all participants who will be using the transportation provided, that buses are scheduled to depart the Square of the Revolution at 07:30 hrs, so teams and representatives will have to be at the location 30 minutes before departure time to cater for a prompt 10:00 hrs start in Linden.
