Campus Safety and Crime Awareness Security Policy
This document has been designed to inform all students and employees of about its safety and security procedures and policies. The annual disclosure document is done each year by contacting the local police department to compile the statistics used in the report. The safety of our students and employees is an important concern of the administration. This document explains this institution’s policy regarding crime and accident prevention, public safety, criminal and accident reporting procedures and safety. Read this document carefully, and ask questions if you feel confused or uncertain.
At orientation for new students and employees each student and employee is informed of the school’s campus security report, procedures, and safety practices. We also review with students and employees the need to be responsible for their own security and safety at all times. Each year we bring a local law enforcement into the school to review how to protect yourself against crime, how to be responsible for your own safety, and to protect yourself against sexual assault.
CRIME & ACCIDENT PREVENTION:
The school does not assume liability for stolen property. Therefore, students and employees should always keep their personal belongings locked in the student lockers, which have been provided. The institution encourages students and staff not to bring expensive jewelry, money, or other valuables to the school. Such items should be left at home in order to reduce the chance of theft. The school reserves the right to prosecute any student or employee to the full extent of state and United States federal law for any criminal violation committed on the school premises. Criminal violations may include, but may not be limited to the following:
- Acquaintance Rape
- Forcible sex offenses
- Non-forcible sex offenses
- Dating violence
- Simple or aggravated assault
Unlawful consumption or possession of alcohol or other controlled or illegal substance
Hate crime including larceny-theft, simple assault, intimidation, or vandalism
Further preventative measures include:
1. Students and/or employees shall not be permitted to consume illegal or controlled substances, including alcoholic beverages, during school hours or at school functions.
2. Students and/or employees shall not be permitted to have any illegal or otherwise dangerous weapons in their possession or on school property. Such a violation will result in the consecration of the weapon, possible prosecution, and possible termination from enrollment or employment.
3. Students and/or employees must keep their property securely locked in the designated areas in order to prevent theft.
4. Students and/or employees must park in the designated areas and should always keep their cars securely locked, and never walk alone.

If an emergency exists in which students and staff are in danger, the police authorities will be contacted for assistance. Do not exit the building unless you have been directly instructed to do so.
