CRIME POLICY

Anyone with knowledge of a crime or emergency either on or off campus is asked to report any incident to the police by dialing 911 and then to the School Director. Any employee of CCI Training Center will assist with notifying the police if they are requested to do so.

CCI Training Center does not employ campus police or security officers. CCI publishes campus crime statistics on the school’s web site, www.ccitraining.edu. The report contains statistics about crimes that have been reported over the past three years and have occurred either on campus, in off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the school, or on public property adjacent to the campus. Copies of this report may also be obtained from the Financial Aid office. CCI Training Center does not have off campus student organizations.

Any crime tip related to hate crime or rape will be accepted by the School Director, under the provisions of Whistleblower protection. Crime alerts are delivered on an as needed basis. Additional crime alert notices will be posted near the main entrance as needed within 24 hours. The school has not entered into a mutual aid agreement with state or local police.

Crime will be reported whether a local law enforcement official, or no one, prosecutes it. In cases involving liquor or drug violations or weapons possession, the information will be included in the annual report where either an arrest is made or the accused is referred for campus disciplinary proceedings.

Campus security procedures include back doors that have audible alarms that sound when they are opened and front doors that are locked at 7:00 PM Monday through Friday and on weekends. CCI does not have campus residences.

To promote security awareness and crime prevention all employees and students are offered at the time of employment or attendance at their first class a booklet entitled “Take Crime Prevention to Work”. At the same time two booklets of education about sexual assault, “Strategies for Avoiding Sexual Assault” and “Confronting Sexual Assault” are offered to employees and students. A listing of registered sex offenders in Texas sorted in various ways can be found at http://records.txdps.state.tx.us/DPS_WEB/SorNow/index.aspx.

If a sexual offense should occur anyone with knowledge of the offense should report it to the police by calling 911 and then report it to the School Director. The victim should not wash or change clothing but should wait for police to respond and gather evidence and a medical exam to be performed. Referral to counseling and other resources for victims of sex offenses may be received by contacting the School Director.

Campus disciplinary action relating to a sex offense will only be taken after police have investigated the offense. If disciplinary action is necessary, both the accused and the accuser will each be allowed to choose one person who has no formal legal training to accompany them throughout the disciplinary hearing. Both the victim and the accused will be informed of the outcome of the hearing. A student found guilty of sexual misconduct may be suspended or expelled from school. Student victims have the option to change their academic schedule after a sexual offense if such change is reasonably available.
