BIT has developed a protocol to ensure that concerning student behavior, mental health issues, or incidents are addressed consistently.
Reporting Incidents to the BIT
In cases of emergency, reporters must contact the district Police Communications Center at 480-784-0911 or 911. The BIT plays a secondary role in all emergency situations and should be contacted only after making contact with emergency response personnel .
An on-line reporting form is set up for submitting alerts for any student within the Maricopa Community College District network. Each report should include as much detail as possible about the behavior and/or incident of concern. BIT encourages individual and collective responsibility in reporting student behaviors of concern.

- All employees should consider it their responsibility to report concerning behaviors for the safety and well-being of the student and campus community.
- All reports should be made to BIT and/or the direct supervisor
- Incident reports should be reported to BIT via the online form or by contacting College Police at 480-461-7046(SD), or 480-654-7257(RM). Include as much detail as possible.
- Faculty/staff/community members can reach BIT staff through the Manager of Care & Conduct office at 480-461-7801 during regular business hours. After hours, refer to the BIT website . Emergencies should ALWAYS be reported to the district Police Communications Center at 480-784-0911 or 911. They will contact the BIT as needed.
- When determining what is reportable, err on the side of over-reporting. Please refer to Disruptive students/signs of distressed students for more information. While an isolated event may appear minor, other similar incidents occurring in close proximity may indicate a pattern of concerning behavior.
