Campus Security

This information is required under Public Law 102-26. The following data will provide you with campus security policies and statistics concerning the occurrence of criminal offenses on our campus.

Should you witness a crime in process or are a victim of a crime, Capri Cosmetology Learning Center requests that you follow this procedure:

During school hours, notify the School Director and the Clarkstown Police Department or Newburgh Police Department immediately.

If a crime occurs during non-school hours and no faculty or staff member is available, notify the Police Department immediately and the School Director as soon as possible during normal business hours.

Remember: Preserving evidence for proof of a criminal offense is very important.

The Capri Cosmetology Learning Center does not recognize any off campus student organizations that would be covered under this act.

The purpose and authority of campus security personnel is limited to securing the premises and protecting the facility. The enforcement authority of campus security personnel is limited to the enforcement of campus rules and regulations. Incidents that go beyond the scope of campus security personnel are referred to land investigated by the local law enforcement agency.

All crimes that are reported will be posted in office within a day of the reporting.

To ensure the accurate and prompt reporting of all crimes, authorized administrative personnel will take a full written statement from involved parties and witnesses at all reported emergency or criminal incidents. The written statements are included as part of a written report, and such statements may be used by campus security personnel and local law enforcement authorities for the purpose of criminal apprehension and / or crime prevention. The institution’s administrative staff for the purpose of disciplinary action may also review criminal incidents.

All students are informed about campus security procedures and practices during orientation.

Everyone should remember that personal safety begins with you. The following should be considered:

– When walking on campus, be aware of who and what is around you. Try not to walk alone and avoid streets and secluded pathways or alleyways.

– Do not carry large amount of cash.

– Keep your motor vehicle in good running condition. Always lock your car and remove all packages and any valuables. Try to park in a well-lighted area.

– Do not leave books or personal property unattended in the classroom, student lounge or library.

If applicable and reasonably available, the institution will change the academic and living situation of a student after an alleged sex offense.

If any disciplinary proceedings are held in cases of an alleged sex offense, both the accuser and accused have the opportunity to have others present. Both the accuser and accused will be informed of the institution’s final determination of any institution disciplinary proceeding and any sanction imposed against the accused.

The institution is in compliance with the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 (Public Law 101-226). All students and employees should refer to the booklet “Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program” for information concerning the campus policies and individual responsibilities required under this Act which is available.
