Behavior Intervention Team (BIT)

All members of the Waukesha County Technical College community - students, faculty, staff - play an important role in creating and maintaining a safe environment that supports learning and working.

In situations of imminent danger or immediate threat to persons or property, contact 911.

How can I make a report?

All members of the WCTC community are encouraged to report observations of behavior or communications of concern via the online report in situations of non-imminent danger.

Reports may be filed anonymously, but students and employees are encouraged to provide contact information for follow-up purposes.

What should be reported?

Examples of behaviors that should be reported include, but are not limited to:

  • Aggressive, disruptive, disturbing, destructive or intimidating behaviors
  • Suicidal thoughts, writing and behavior (cutting, etc.)
  • Sudden changes in academic performance or personal appearance (inability to care for oneself)
  • Appearing to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol on campus
  • Changing patterns in interactions, communications or discussion, or class participation
  • Illegal activity (theft, fraud, domestic violence, drug activity, etc.)
  • Unsafe facility conditions (non-working emergency telephones; chemical/biological hazards; wet/loose surfaces; exposed electrical equipment, etc.)

Behavior that can be interpreted as a threat to self, others or property should be reported immediately to Campus Safety, which is provided by the Village of Pewaukee Police Department. They can be reached at 262.691.5582.

Reports will be evaluated based upon defined criteria for further action or continued monitoring. One function of the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) is to provide a centralized source of information concerning behaviors that are problematic, so that patterns of student behavior may be identified. Any behavior that causes concern may be reported to BIT, no matter how small and even if the reporter lacks direct knowledge of what occurred.
