Anyone with a College phone extension who believes they are receiving harassing phone calls should report this to Campus Safety Services. Campus Safety Services may advise contacting the Williamstown police department as phone harassment violates state laws.
Campus Safety Services will evaluate (possibly with the assistance of the Williamstown Police department) if phone harassment has occurred and may recommend that the originating phone number be blocked and for how long. Any block requires approval from the relevant senior staff member for the requester (Dean of the College for students, Dean of Faculty for faculty, Vice President for Finance and Operations for all others), as the number would be blocked for all campus not just for one extension. The requester will be notified if a block is applied and the duration.
