If it's an emergency and the crime is still taking place, call 999 and ask for the relevant emergency service.
The emergency services will contact King’s security to make arrangements to come on to campus and alert them of the incident.
If there is more than one person available to offer support at the scene, both the emergency services and security can be contacted. If this is not possible, the emergency services should always be called in the first instance.
If you have experienced bullying, harassment, sexual misconduct or hate crime as a result of the behaviour of another member of staff, you can address this through either informal or formal resolution. All reports will be dealt with confidentiality, sensitively and effectively.
If you feel able to and it is appropriate, you can have an informal, open and honest discussion with the individual concerned. We understand, however, this is often not possible and can be intimidating when managers or senior members of staff are the alleged perpetrators. Staff can also contact People Partners for advice on informal resolutions.
If you don’t feel comfortable or feel that an informal discussion is inappropriate, you should raise your concerns as soon as possible with your manager. You can also contact your local HR People Partner to talk through your options. People Partners are the main link between HR and the faculties and directorates. They can offer strategic expertise, advice and support, including for complaints and grievances. Any reports will be considered thoroughly according to the appropriate procedure:
Where appropriate, disciplinary action may be taken against instigators of bullying, harassment, sexual misconduct or hate crime. Instigators of victimization based on perceived reporting of these behaviours can also have disciplinary action taken against them.
Anonymous Disclosure Tool
The Anonymous Disclosure Tool allows you to raise a concern and help the university to identify patterns and trends in the incidents reported in order to improve the way we respond to reports.
If you are unsure of which option to peruse, you can have a confidential conversation with a HR People Partner.
