Confidential Tracking and Documentation:

A searchable and confidential database must be maintained to identify faculty and staff of concern; information known; targets of possible acts or threats of violence; and a description of the response. Such recordkeeping is mandated by the legislation. Keeping reports and information separate from individual files and as confidential as feasible and appropriate for the situation will be important for protecting students, and to encourage openness and reporting.
