1.  Campus Overview

Loyola University Maryland has been an integral part of higher education in Baltimore since 1852.  The primary campus has been located in the northern portion of Baltimore City, and is situated on a well-lit campus surrounded by residential and light commercial properties.  The campus has expanded several times, and now encompasses approximately sixty-five acres of land and more than forty buildings, ranging from small one-story cottages to two nine-story residential towers.  In 2009, the Ridley Athletic Complex was opened at 2221 West Cold Spring Lane providing another 80 acres of land and a 6000 seat capacity stadium.  The Evergreen Campus is located at 4501 North Charles Street in Baltimore, Maryland. The satellite campuses are located in the Metropolitan Baltimore area:

 

a. Loyola University Graduate Center

Columbia Campus

8890 McGaw Road

Columbia, MD 21045-4743

     

b. Loyola University Graduate Center

Timonium Campus

2034 Greenspring Drive

Timonium, Maryland 21093

 

c. Loyola University Clinical Centers

Belvedere Square

5911 York Road, Suite 100

Baltimore MD  21212

 

The Columbia campus provides administrative and classroom space for graduate programs in business management, education, engineering science, modern studies, pastoral counseling, and speech-language pathology, and audiology. Loyola occupies 33,000 square feet of this 52,000 square foot facility. Police services are provided by the Howard County Police Department who are the first responders to the building’s alarm system and 911 police emergency calls. Contracted security officers provide onsite security during key instructional periods on the campus and campus police monitor the electronic door card-access, closed circuit television (CCTV) and building alarm systems in the Communications Center at the Baltimore Evergreen Campus. In cooperation with the Howard County Police Department, Loyola’s department of public safety conducts follow-up investigations of reported incidents. 

 

The Graduate Center at Timonium is a 65,000 square foot academic center that provides administrative offices and high-tech, state of the art classroom space for the programs in the Education, Graduate Business Programs, Computer Science, Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Departments.  Security at the Center is staffed by members of the Department of Public Safety who have responsibility for on-site monitoring of the electronic door card-access system and the closed circuit television. A Campus Police officer has been added to the daily security mission at Timonium. This officer is the first responder to all incidents that occur at that campus. Monitored Access and CCTV control systems are conducted at the communications center. The Baltimore County Police Department responds to 911 emergency calls. The county police and the University’s Department of Public Safety work in partnership to implement crime prevention strategies.     

 

The Loyola Clinical Center at Belvedere Square, located near York Road and Northern Parkway, offers individuals living in the Baltimore metropolitan area a broad range of services addressing educational, language, and psychological issues.  Individuals requiring these broad range services will find a comprehensive, affordable and professional environment for their evaluation and treatment.

 

All sites, to include the Ridley Athletic Complex, are well-lit and are equipped with the latest security technology including CCTV surveillance, blue light emergency phones in parking lots and the campus-wide electronic card-access door entry system.  Security patrols are conducted by the on-site Public Safety Officers, Off - Duty Baltimore City Officers and private security companies.

 

2.  Campus Police Authority

The Department of Public Safety is the agency charged with the protection and preservation of peace and good order on the property owned, leased or rented by Loyola University Maryland. The Campus Police officers are commissioned as Special Police Officers by the Maryland State Police and are vested under Article 41, Section 4-905 of the Annotated Code of Maryland, with full law enforcement powers on the property owned, leased, or otherwise under the control of Loyola University Maryland. The department enjoys an excellent working relationship with the Baltimore Police who patrol the areas surrounding the Evergreen Campus. Through a liaison with other local police agencies, the Department monitors and records all criminal activity at Loyola’s campuses in the respective jurisdictions of the Baltimore Metropolitan Area.

 

Campus Police have complete police authority to apprehend and arrest anyone involved in illegal acts on campus and its immediately adjacent areas. If offenses violating Loyola rules and regulations or Community Standards are committed by a student, the campus police will also refer the individual to the disciplinary judicial process that Student Development administers. Through coordination with local law enforcement agencies, any criminal activity engaged in by students at off-campus locations is monitored and recorded. This information is provided to the Dean of Students’ Office for any action or follow-up that may be required.

The Director of Public Safety reports directly to the Vice President for Administration who in turn reports to the Executive Vice President of the University.  The Director is responsible for the achievement of the Department’s mission and is dedicated to the implementation of benchmark standards for campus law enforcement as established by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA) in which the Department holds membership. 

 

If a Loyola student is involved in an off-campus offense, campus police officers may assist with the investigation in cooperation with Northern District, Baltimore Police Department (BPD).  BPD routinely works and communicates with campus officers on any serious incident occurring on campus or in the immediate neighborhood or business areas surrounding campus.  Loyola University operates no off-campus housing or off-campus student organizations.  However, many students live in the neighborhoods surrounding Loyola.  While BPD has primary jurisdiction in these areas, Campus Police can and does respond in an administrative capacity to student related incidents that occur in close proximity to campus.    

 

3.  Policy for Reporting the Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics

The Department of Public Safety prepares The Annual Security Report “Clery Report” to comply with the 1990 Congress approved Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act which amended the Higher Education Act of 1965.  The Jeanne Clery Act requires higher education institutions to make public their campus security policies, and it requires that crime data are collected, reported, and disseminated to the campus community.  The Clery Act is intended to provide prospective students and employees, current students and their families, and the rest of the University community accurate, complete, and timely information about safety on campus so that they can make informed decisions.  The full text of this report can be located on our website at:

 

http://www.loyola.edu/~/media/department/publicsafety/documents/annualcleryreport2011.ashx

 

This report is prepared in cooperation with Baltimore Police Department, Howard County Police Department, and the Baltimore County Police Department.  Additionally, our internal organizations: Student Life, Student Development, Counseling Center, and Alcohol and Drug Education and Support Services, all contribute greatly to the overall judicial process and its success.  Each entity provides updated information on their efforts and programs to comply with the Act.  Campus crime, arrest and referral statistics include those matters reported to the Campus Police, designated campus officials and local law enforcement agencies.  These statistics may also include crimes that have occurred in private residences or businesses which are not required to be reported.  A procedure is in place to anonymously capture crime statistics disclosed confidentially.  Each year an email notification, phone mail bulletin and a newshound notice announce the location of where to view or receive the completed report.  These alert notifications are made to students, faculty, staff and administrators.  Prospective students and employees at Loyola receive information where they can view the statistics from the Admissions Office and the Human Recourses Department respectively.

 

4.  List of Officials with Significant Responsibility for Student and Campus Activities

Although we encourage the reporting of campus criminal activity directly to the Campus Police Department, in some instances members of the campus community may choose to file a report with one of the other Campus Security Authorities.  A Campus Security Authority is an official of an institution who has significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including but not limited to, student housing, student discipline, and campus judicial proceedings.  An official is defined as any person who has the authority and the duty to take action or respond to particular issues on behalf of the institution.  These authorities are obligated to provide this information to the Campus Police. For reporting purposes at Loyola University, Campus Security Authorities have been designated as:

 

University Deans, Associate Deans, Assistants to the Dean of Students, Assistant Vice Presidents of Student Development, Director of International Programs,  Director of Graduate Admissions, Director and Associate Directors of Student Life, Director and Associate Directors of Athletics, all Head Coaches, Director and Associate Directors of Recreational Sports and the Director and Assistant Directors of Public Safety.

 

University pastoral and professional counselors are encouraged to tell their clients about the reporting procedures outlined in this document.  As noted below, confidential reports / anonymous reports are extremely valuable in order to prevent further victimization and to obtain a more accurate portrait of campus crime. In certain instances, a crime victim may be reluctant to file a report fearing the process and/or loss of his/her anonymity. In such circumstances, crime victims are encouraged to consider making a confidential report to one of the designated campus security authorities.  At a minimum, crime victims will receive valuable counseling and referral information.  Confidential reports are important because they provide valuable information that will enhance the safety of the community-at-large and they help provide a more accurate portrait of actual campus crime.

 

5.  Organization

The Department of Public Safety is comprised of the Police Services Division and the Operations Support Division.  The most visible component of the Department is the Police Services Division, consisting of forty-seven sworn police officers who provide a twenty-four hour presence on the University campus using foot, bicycle and motorized patrol.  Each shift is closely supervised by a shift commander with the authority and responsibility to assure that the policies and procedures of the Department are followed.

 

Campus Police Officers receive training conducted by instructors from State and local police jurisdictions who are certified by the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commission (MPCTC).  New Officer and in-service training emphasizes conflict resolution and problem-solving techniques, sexual assault crisis and prevention, cultural diversity, community policing strategies and crime prevention techniques, as well as law enforcement and security methods.  Officers are trained and equipped in the use and handling of defensive weapons (pepper spray and the ASP baton).   Instructors from outside agencies, such as “Turn Around” (sexual assault crisis) and the Community Mediation Center are regularly included in the recruit and in-service training programs.  In-service training is conducted once a year (summer) to update and improve the skills of campus police officers.

 

All campus police officers are certified Red Cross first aid caregivers and trained on Automatic External Defibrillators (AED’s).  Recertification in these programs occurs annually.

 

The Operation Support Division consists of the Communications Center and the Access Control management.  The Communications Center is the monitoring point for all 911 emergency calls, the campus emergency notification alarm system, the card key access control terminal, the closed circuit television system for more than 450 CCTV / security cameras.  Additionally, all of the campus Fire Alarm systems are housed at the Communications Center along with our key control systems. It is staffed by trained Public Safety Officers on a twenty-four-hour basis, seven days a week and is located in the Facilities Building, Room 220.  It can be reached by calling 410-617-5010.  Access Control Management, which can be contacted by calling 410-617-2279, is responsible for all entry control devices and the installation and maintenance of theft and burglar alarms.

 

In June 2006, Public Safety entered into an agreement with the Baltimore Police Department to hire “Off Duty” Baltimore Police Officers to provide additional coverage for our trouble spots in and around campus.  The BPD Officers retain all of their powers and responsibilities but are working directly for the leadership of the Department of Public Safety. 

 

6.  Crime Prevention

Crime Prevention is a cooperative effort requiring the entire University Community to actively participate in identifying conditions for criminal opportunity.  The Department of Public Safety offers a variety of crime prevention throughout the year.

 

Issues of personal safety, residential security, office safety and vehicle theft prevention are but a few of the topics presented to students by campus police in various formats.  Loyola conforms to the mandates of State and Federal law pertaining to victim’s rights in the handling of all cases.  To enhance community and student safety, it is recommended that after darkness falls, people should walk with friends or someone they trust or know well.  After the shuttles end transportation rounds, students are advised to call the Student Escort Program at extension 5566 for a ride.

 

Using certified instructors, the Department of Public Safety conducts the Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) Program for the women of the University.  R.A.D. is a system of realistic, self-defense tactics and techniques combined with instruction on risk reduction, prevention and avoidance.  The program, conducted each semester, provides women with the knowledge to make educated decisions about sexual assault prevention.   

 

Every year during the month of April, the Health Center, the Department of Public Safety, and members of the student body co-sponsor Sexual Assault Awareness Month.  Programs on sexual assault prevention and awareness are conducted throughout the month. 

 

We also conduct the Watch Your Car program which is a national anti-theft program funded by the Bureau of Justice.  This is a voluntary vehicle registration program designed to deter auto theft and assist in the apprehension of auto thieves.  Registration forms and decals can be obtained at the Department of Public Safety.

 

The Department also offers "Operation Identification" which is a program designed to help protect valuables, by engraving the personal driver's license number on such items as televisions, computers and the like, and creating a written inventory (including model and serial numbers).  This has proven to be a deterrent to theft and has been very helpful in returning stolen property to the rightful owner when it is recovered.

 

7.  Reporting and Response

Community members, students, faculty, staff, administrators and guests are encouraged to report all crimes and public safety related incidents to the Loyola University Campus Police in a timely manner.   Incidents, suspicious circumstances, and other police-related information can be reported to an officer on patrol or by calling 410-617-5911 or 5010. The Department of Public Safety continually promotes the reporting of incidents in programs such as awareness campaigns, freshman orientation, Resident Assistant and Graduate residential crime prevention presentations and whenever the opportunity arises.

 

Since timely crime reporting can be crucial to the prevention or detection of criminal activity, the University community is encouraged to report offenses promptly to campus and local police.  

 

It is the policy of the Department of Public Safety to respond to all requests for police services, to write a police report, and to conduct follow-up investigations. The Department’s Investigator coordinates investigations with the local police.

 

Victims of crimes against persons, such as robbery or sexual assault, are encouraged to seek confidential counseling services from the Counseling Center at extension 5109 (TDD 2143).

 

The Director of Public Safety is the University’s agent for the purpose of making timely warnings and the collection of statistical data concerning criminal offenses to be included in this annual report. 

 

The Department of Public Safety issues periodic Incident Alert bulletins of suspicious or criminal activity occurring on and around the campus with suggestions of ways to avoid the occurrence of similar incidents. Bulletins can be distributed to key locations around the campus and are posted in the University e-mail system and can also be sent over the telephone as a Phone Mail Bulletin. In some instances, the notices are reprinted in the students' newspaper, "The Greyhound" and in the Newshound.  All members of the University Community are urged to read these notices carefully, and to be guided by the information presented. Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to the Campus Police Office, either by phone 410-617-2000 or in person at the dispatch center on the second floor of the Physical Plant. 

 

8.  Confidential Reporting Procedure

If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within the University’s Judicial System or the Criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report.  With your permission you can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential, while taking steps to ensure the future safety of yourself and others. With such information, the University can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving students, determine where there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant, and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crimes statistics for the institution. A confidential voluntary reporting system for investigative and statistical purposes entitled, “Silent Witness” is available on the Public Safety website at: https://inside.loyola.edu/publicsafety   

 

9.  Campus Security Services

a. Uniformed Patrols

Commissioned Special Police Officers patrol on foot, on bike, or in a clearly marked campus police vehicle twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

 

Desk Receptionists are provided for security at the Timonium Graduate Center and at the Columbia Campus.

 

b. Student Escort Program

 

Specially selected and trained students are employed to provide safe and reliable van and shuttle escorts on the Evergreen Campus.

 

c. Electronic Surveillance and Protection

Over 450 closed circuit television cameras (CCTV) are placed at strategic locations to monitor and record the campuses of the University.

 

A state-of the-art network system for fire alarms in University buildings protects the campus from fire emergencies.

Emergency phones (over 90), equipped with one-touch dialing and designated by a blue light, are located in or within close proximity to most parking lots and walkways.

 

All 911 emergency calls, when using the Loyola telephones, are monitored at the Communications Center.

 

d. Investigative Services

Uniformed officers are trained to conduct initial investigations using techniques to protect the victims and to preserve evidence.

 

The Investigator’s office provides support for victims throughout the process of any subsequent criminal or university judicial proceedings.

 

The Department of Public Safety maintains a close      partnership with the investigative units of the Baltimore Police and the police departments of Anne Arundel, Baltimore and Howard Counties.

 

e. Safety Education

Periodically, crime prevention programs are conducted by campus police, as well as local police on such topics as personal safety and sexual assault prevention.

 

Presentations by such organizations as the American Red Cross, presenting the Crime Avoidance program, are sponsored by the Department of Public Safety.

Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) training is conducted by trained and certified instructors of the Department of Public Safety.

 

Loyola added emergency text messaging to the Loyola Emergency Notification System (LENS) in May 2007.  Text messaging will be used when imminent threats to the Loyola community are identified.  This is a free service however those within the Loyola community must register to gain use of this valuable information system. To see the instructions on how to register go to the Public Safety web site at https://inside.loyola.edu/publicsafety  click on e2campus.  “Incident Alerts” and “Crime Prevention Bulletins” are widely distributed on campus by timely postings and e-mail messages and are accessible on the Public Safety web site. They inform the university community of situations that present a potential hazard on campus or in the surrounding community.

 

University Incident Statistics are posted to inform the University community of all incidents reported on campus and to the Baltimore City police.

 

A daily log of crimes occurring on the University campus is available in the Communication Center for review twenty-four hours a day.

 

Public Safety also conducts “Operation Lockdown”.  This program checks several hundred residence hall doors for security and records doors that are open with no one at home.  Emails are sent to those students whose rooms are left open.  There has been a significant reduction in doors that are left unlocked sense the beginning of the program.

 

f.   Shuttle Bus and Escort Service

The Department of Transportation provides scheduled shuttle bus service to and from the parking facilities located at York Road, the Fitness and Aquatic Center, Cathedral of Mary Our Queen and the Ridley Athletic Complex.

 

Many of the sheltered bus stops are equipped with emergency phones linked directly to the Campus Police Communications Center.

 

In addition to the Shuttle system, Student Escort Program, escorts are provided by uniformed police officers and are available when other transportation resources are closed. 

 

10.  Safety and Security in the Residential Community, Access and Maintenance

All residences on campus can be entered by electronic access card readers and are equipped with telephones with one touch direct dial contact to the campus police.  The campus emergency telephone number -- 410-617-5911 / 5010 -- is prominently posted in each room. 

 

To enhance safety on the Evergreen Campus, each officer is assigned a particular patrol designed to maximize the visibility of the officers.   Police patrols and security are enhanced by burglar & theft alarms, closed circuit security cameras, and the Blackboard, One Card for access to residence halls and all University buildings. Escorting students is an additional function that the campus police provide when other transportation means are not operating.  A Student Escort/Monitor program is also available to escort students’ every day from 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. (3:00 a.m. on weekends).

 

All laundry rooms are equipped with emergency phones that require only that the caller push the red button on the yellow phones.  Officers are dispatched to the location that is electronically displayed on the dispatcher’s phone.  Over 90 Emergency Blue Light phones are strategically placed over the campus providing a direct telephone line to the communications center (base operator) who in turn will notify the campus police officer responsible for that specific area.

 

Loyola main campus offers traditional residence halls, high rise residence complexes, and suite /apartment type complexes which provides on-campus housing for approximately 3000 students.  Security safeguards within the residence halls include restricted access, guest registration and external door prop alarm systems.  Crime prevention programs include orientation workshops, individual floor meetings, residential community–wide presentations, and educational programs.  Access to University housing facilities is limited to residents, escorted guests and University staff.  Entry is monitored on a 24-hour basis through a combination of card-key security systems, conventional keys and on-duty Resident Life and Work Study students.  Closed Circuit Television is also used at main entrances and at security desks. 

Professional Residence hall Directors and student Resident Advisors, who are all members of the University’s Student Life staff, live on campus and provide 24-hour staff coverage.  Student room doors should be locked at all times even when occupied.  Most importantly, residents are reminded to observe building security procedures and to notify Resident Life staff or Campus Police of any unfamiliar faces or unusual incidents within either the residence halls or apartments.    All Student Life staff members in the halls undergo comprehensive training for both prevention and response regarding safety and security issues.  As part of their responsibilities for campus security, both student and professional staff participate in lectures and seminars associated with topics such as substance abuse, prevention of sexual assault, and community security.    

 

11.  Firearm Policy

The unauthorized use, possession or storage of any weapon on University premises or at University sponsored activities is strictly forbidden.  This includes, but is not limited to firearms, air rifles, slingshots, swords, hunting knives, etc.

 

12.  Drug Policy

Maryland law states that it is unlawful for any person to administer or distribute to another, or to possess (except for physician-prescribed medication), any controlled dangerous substance or controlled paraphernalia (Md. Ann. Code, Art. 27, Sec. 287). 

 

Violations of the Drug Policy, including but not limited to the use, sale, possession and distribution of any controlled substance; the manufacture, sale, distribution, possession or use of any controlled substance on the property of the University and on non-University property used in the performance of University-related activities; and possession of drug paraphernalia, may subject a student to sanctions that include suspension or expulsion from the University.

 

The Drug and Alcohol Policy of the University is contained in a document entitled Loyola University Alcohol and Drug Program: Standards and Sanctions, Health, Information and Services. The University's official written Drug and Alcohol Policy is also contained in the Student Handbook and Calendar issued annually to all students.

 

Loyola University is in compliance with the Federal Drug Free Schools and Communities Act as Amendments of 1989 (Public Law 101-229) signed into law by President Bush on December 12, 1989.   The University abides by all Federal, State and/or Local Laws relating to alcohol and drugs.

 

13.  Alcohol Policy

Maryland law states that it is unlawful for any person under the age of 21 to purchase, possess, transport or consume alcoholic beverages (Md. Ann. Code, Art. 2B, Sec. 3 and Article 27, Sec. 499A). In addition, it is unlawful for any person to purchase alcoholic beverages for consumption by an individual who is known to be under the age of 21 (Art. 27, Sec. 400).  It is also unlawful for any person under the age of 21 to knowingly and willfully make a misrepresentation or false statement as to his/her age in order to obtain alcoholic beverage or to induce the illegal sale or furnishing of alcoholic beverage@ (Art. 27, Sec. 403).

 

Only those students who are 21 years of age or older are permitted to have a reasonable amount of alcohol in their apartments.  Guests that are 21 years of age or older may not bring alcohol to a room/apartment/suite where at least one person is under the age of 21.

 

14. Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures

Loyola will take all steps necessary to isolate and mitigate any emergency or dangerous situation that may affect the campus community.  All emergencies normally get reported to the Department of Public Safety’s base operations which in turn dispatch campus police officers to the situation.  These officers along with Student Life members will make early assessments determining the size and scope of the emergency.  If the emergency is confirmed to be present and an imminent threat to the community, the Director of Public Safety will be notified and a mass notification notice will be sent to the community. 

 

Imminent threats generally are:

 

a. Natural disasters that will directly and adversely affect the community.

 

b. An active shooter or hostile armed intruder in or around campus.

 

c. Bomb threat or Explosion.

 

d. Civil Disturbance that could have serious effect on the campus community.

 

e. Terrorist attack.

 

f. Chemical or Biological accident or attack.

 

g. Gas leak, water main break or a power loss that could have serious affect on the campus or surrounding communities.

 

15.  Mass Notification and e2campus

The University uses e2campus as our mass notification system to disseminate imminent threats to the community. Students, Staff, Administrators and Faculty can easily register or opt into this mass notification system by visiting the Public Safety web site at http://security.loyola.edu/e2campus/.  The mass notification system will send a text message to a cellular phone alerting the registered individual of the eminent threat.  The size of the message that can be sent to the cellular phone is limited so additional messages will continue to be passed through the phone as the situation develops.  Additionally critical information will also be passed through the Loyola internet network and email systems. Complimenting the electronic mass notification process will be critical information being transmitted over the air on our external public address system.  This system helps reach the community that may be out on the campus traveling from one place to the other.

 

a. These systems will be activated without delay when the situation becomes known and there is an imminent threat to the campus. There may be situations when notification might compromise the efforts of those responding to the event which may dictate holding the message until an appropriate time later.

 

b. The responsibility to assess the situation and disseminate the mass notification message lies with the Department of Public Safety.  Routine operations inherent in the Campus Police organization will be the means to develop the situation and initiate appropriate calls made to the Department leadership. Once the Director, and or Assistant Directors of Public Safety have verified as best they can an imminent threat the activation of the mass notification process will begin. Critical information may come from many different sources BPD, County Police, State or City Government Agencies etc. Each will be accessed and evaluated with respect to impact and threat to the University.  Normally this notification will come to the Operations Center through a field officer or telephone.  Base is staffed 24 hours a day every day of the year.  After the initial imminent threat alerts have been disseminated additional information will be updated as the situation develops.  We anticipate a series of alert messages will be used as the situation evolves and as additional information becomes available.  The sequence of events and procedures will generally follow this sequence:

 

1. Event or incident.

 

2. First responders dispatched.

 

3. Expansion of the situation and security needs.

 

4. Calls for additional support BPD / BCFD.

           

5. Asst Directors or Director notified.

 

6. Analysis of the critical information.

 

7. Imminent threat notification.

 

8. Begin e2campus notification.

 

9. Use Public Address systems.

 

10. Establish local perimeters.

 

11. Establish command posts (EOC).

 

12. React, coordinate, implement, and mitigate the effect.

 

13. Continuity of Operations

 

c. The key positions at the University who will carry out this process are:

 

1. Shift Commanders, Sergeants and the Officer in Charge.

 

2. Asst Directors of Public Safety.

 

3. Director of Public Safety.

 

4. Vice President of Administration.

 

5. Executive Vice President

 

6. Vice President of Student Development .

 

7. Vice President of Finance.

 

8. Vice President of Enrollment and Communications.

 

9. Vice President of Advancement.

 

10. Any designated representative by the Vice Presidents

 

d. The mass notification systems that we use; e2campus, public address, and incident alert, are messages that can be stratified by population and or location.  Undergraduate, Faculty, Staff and Administrators, and Alumni can be reached by using the proper group addresses.  The dissemination of emergency information to the larger community is a collaborative effort between those mentioned above and the Public Relations leadership.  Discussions then take place about the impact of a message release and what information needs to be released.

 

e. The University tests its mass notification systems every first Monday of the month.  This 1:00 pm test exercises our e2campus, public address and email systems.  Each stand-alone system is tested and evaluated to see if they will be able to perform their intended functions when needed.  Our “Blue Light” distress stations in and around campus are tested each semester.  The Campus Police shifts are provided a designated number of duress stations to test; they record the results and submit work orders for those units that do not function properly. 

 

f. The Department of Public Safety (DPS) conducts two exercises during the course of the year. One is at “In Service” training (May and June) and one over the Christmas holiday in December.  These exercises put our emergency responders, Campus Police, Student Life, Baltimore Police and other appropriate internal and external Departments / Divisions through procedures we expect to use during a crisis event. 

 

g. DPS continues to send out Incident Alerts as dictated by the standards established by the Higher Education Opportunity Act (Public Law 110-315).

 

16.  Missing Student Notification: 

Loyola has an established missing student notification policy and procedures because we have on campus housing.  The University’s policy is to report any student that has been missing for 24 hours to local authorities.  The Department of Student Life is the proponent for reporting the status of a missing student to Campus Police who will in turn report the missing person with all appropriate information to Baltimore Police. 

 

a. Key positions that have a responsibility to report missing students are:

 

1. Director of Student Life.

 

2. Vice President for Student Development.

 

3. Director of Public Safety.

 

b. The general guidelines and procedures used for missing student notification are outlined in the Student Life’s Community Standards and Student Life’s Standard Operating Procedures.

 

1. Students that are university residents have the option to register a confidential contact person as the person they want notified in case a student is determined missing.   

 

2. Campus officials and police officers may have access to this information while conducting a missing person investigation.

 

3. Students are advised about the option to register during in processing and are also informed that local law enforcement will be notified when a student is missing. 

 

4. Students that are not 18 years or older do not have an option on who will be notified.  The parent or guardian will be the notification point of contact.

 

5. Students that meet the 24 hour missing criteria must be reported to the university campus police or Baltimore City police.

 

17.  Student Life

In keeping with the mission of the University, its educational goals and assumptions, the Office of Student Life strives to support the growth and development of Loyola students.  Student Life is committed to providing a safe, comfortable and educational environment.   Student Life oversees and reviews violations of the Community Standards, Policies and Procedures; the Student Code of Conduct and conducts and implements the University’s Adjudication Process.

 

Student residence halls are secured at all times and may be entered only by a key and/or electronic access card.  There are also students employed as desk assistants who control residence hall access to Butler and Hammerman Halls, Hopkins Court, Newman Towers, and Campion Towers.

 

Resident Assistants (RAs), who are selected and trained students, assist students in their development and adjustment to University life as well as monitor student deportment in the residential areas.

 

RAs and campus police officers periodically make evening "rounds" together throughout the residence halls.  This relationship helps to ensure cooperation and increases the visibility of the campus police in and around the residence halls.

 

The Department of Public Safety conducts several programs with the resident assistants during their initial and in-service training programs. These programs cover the topics of alcohol abuse prevention, fire safety, personal safety and security, and emergency procedures.

 

There are also Graduate Resident Coordinators (GRC) who are live-in graduate students responsible for coordinating the activities and resources of the RAs, in residential areas.  The GRCs also provide assistance to the Assistant Directors of the Student Life staff in matters involving violations of the student Code of Conduct.

 

Campus police are immediately notified by residence hall staff members if there is a crime or incident that requires the attention of the police.  The Office of Student Life and the Department of Public Safety work together regarding situations in the residence halls that might require emergency intervention.  All reports submitted by campus police are shared with the Office of Student Life.  

 

18.  Response to Sexual Assaults  

Loyola strives to create a safe educational and working environment for all the members of the University community including students, faculty, administrators and staff.  Violence of any kind, specifically sexual assault, is not tolerated.  Loyola University complies with all local, state, and federal laws governing rape and sexual assault.

Any member of the University community who believes that he or she is a victim of a sexual assault that occurred on University property, at a University sponsored event or perpetrated by a member of the University community should report the incident to Campus Police or a member of the Student Life staff.  The individual will be asked to give a statement to the investigating Campus Police officer and an assistant director of Student Life at that time.  Statements will serve as the basis for further investigation of any case and any resulting judicial charges.  The University encourages any victim of sexual assault to report the incident to the appropriate police agency in the jurisdiction where the incident occurred.  As is the case with any crime, the crime scene should be protected and preserved. Victims and those who assist them are encouraged to protect evidence by not disturbing the scene or destroying possible evidence. 

 

The Department of Public Safety will assure that the victim is assisted in contacting the appropriate law enforcement officials.  Victims of sexual assault will be provided transportation by the University to the appropriate rape treatment centers. In Baltimore City, Mercy Hospital is the designated treatment center located at 301 St. Paul Place (410-332-9000).  If a student is the victim of a sexual assault, she or he may file charges with the University judicial system as well as criminal charges.  Consult the handbook of Community Standards.

 

If the victim of sexual assault and/or other crimes against persons chooses not to report it through the formal process, the victim is still encouraged to seek counseling through the University’s Counseling Center   twenty-four hours a day by calling Campus Police at 410-617-5010 or through the Graduate Resident Coordinator of their respective residential hall.  Counseling off campus can be arranged by contacting “Turn Around” at 410-837-7000, or the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center at 410-337-8111. 

 

A student who is the victim of a sexual assault may request a transfer to alternative classes or housing.  The University will accommodate the request if such classes and housing are reasonably available. 

 

19.  Sexual Offender Registration

The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act (CSCPA) of 2000 is a federal law that provides for the tracking of convicted sex offenders enrolled at, or employed by, institutions of higher education.  The CSCPA is an amendment to the Jacob Watterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Act.  The federal law requires state law enforcement agencies to make this list available.  Maryland’s registry can be reviewed at www.dpscs.state.md.us/sor.  The CSCPA further amends the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) to clarify that nothing in the Act can prohibit an educational institution from disclosing information provided to the institution concerning registered sex offenders.   

 

20.  Crime Statistics

The following definitions are to be used for reporting the crimes listed in 34 CFR sec. 668.46 (previously 668.47) in accordance with the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reporting Program. The definitions for murder, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, weapon law violations, drug abuse violations and liquor law violations are excerpted from the Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook. The definitions of forcible and non forcible sex offenses are excerpted from the National Incident-Based Reporting System Edition of the Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook.

21.  Crime Reporting Areas
For the purpose of reporting statistics, institutions of higher education need to distinguish, by means of separate categories, criminal offenses that occur on campus; in or on a non-campus building or property; on public property; and in dormitories or other residential facilities for students on campus. These newly established geographic areas are defined as:

Campus - Residence and Non-residence

(1) Any building or property owned or controlled by an institution within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area and used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the institution's educational purposes, including residence halls; and

(2) Any building or property that is within or reasonably contiguous to the area identified in paragraph (1) of this definition, that is owned by the institution but controlled by another person, is frequently used by students and supports institutional purposes (such as a food or other retail vendor).

Non-campus Building or Property -

(1) Any building or property owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by the institution (no such buildings exist at Loyola University); or

(2) Any building or property owned or controlled by an institution that is used in direct support of, or in relation to, the institution’s educational purposes, is frequently used by students and is not within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution.

 

Public Property-

All public property, including thoroughfares, streets, sidewalks and parking facilities, that are on campus, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.

 

Hate Crime Reporting –

 

We report Hate Crimes that fall into one of these criminal categories; homicide, sex offences, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson, and any other crime involving bodily injury reported to local law enforcement agencies or a campus security authority.  Evidence that the victim was intentionally selected because of the perpetrator’s bias will be assessed.  Revised regulations will add the crimes of larceny-theft, simple assault, intimidation, and destruction/ damage/ vandalism of property to the list of crimes that must be reported in the hate crime statistics.  The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Hate Crime Collection Guidelines will continue to be the source for definitions. The reporting of crime events is the responsibility of the Department of Public Safety.

 

22.  Annual Fire Safety Report

 

a. General Procedures: General fire evacuation procedures include the following directions for occupants of any University building. If the fire alarm system is activated Campus Police will respond to all fire alarms and emergency situations. They will notify the Baltimore City Fire Department (BCFD) if any fire alarm is activated.  Occupants of all floors will immediately evacuate the building at the sound of the fire alarm system. In the event a fire occurs the Loyola community is advised to do the following:

 

1. Remain calm and go to the nearest stairwell, walk on the right side. Walk, do not run. Do not use elevators they will not be in service during a fire alarm condition. Exit out of the building. Go to the Rally Point (See Rally Point Map).

 

2. Pull the nearest red manual pull station (usually on the wall near stairwells and exits). This will activate the building’s fire alarm system.

 

3. Report the fire (regardless of size) to Public Safety at x5911. Give the following info:

 

a. Your Name

b. Location of fire (Building name, Apt, Room # or area)

c. Injured people

 

4. Assist in the evacuation of the building.  Give any disabled occupant info to Campus Police or the BCFD upon exiting.

 

a. Close all doors when leaving rooms. If your room/apt door is hot to the touch and smoke is beginning to filter into your room; place a wet towel under the door or seal it with tape.  Wave a sheet or large garment out the window. Wait for assistance from the BCFD.

 

b. Keep low and crawl in any smoke filled areas.

 

c. Do not re-enter the building until the all clear has been announced, this occurs after the BCFD gives their all clear and Campus Police has completed a survey.

 

b. Residence Halls:  Campus Police and the Student Life Staff will assist in the complete evacuation of the building and control the occupants in the assembly area until the emergency has been abated (see specific building evacuation procedures).

 

c. Academic Buildings:  Campus Police and any designated fire wardens present in the building will assist in the complete evacuation of the building and control the occupants in the assembly area until the emergency has been abated (see specific building evacuation procedures)

 

d. Fire Drills: During any given calendar year there are several fire drills conducted and documented.  Two formal fire drills were conducted during the 2009 calendar year, and over 100 evacuations in residence halls were documented fire alarm events.  After action reviews were also documented in order to train, educate and improve upon evacuation times with Public Safety and Student Life staff.

 

e. Policies on Portable electrical appliances, smoking and open flames:  Smoking, candles and open flames are prohibited in Loyola University Maryland residence halls.  No portable electrical appliances, hot plates, fireworks, firearms, electric heaters, or halogen lamps are allowed in Loyola housing.

 

f. Student Housing Evacuation:  A policy involving the mandatory evacuation of each residence hall upon fire alarm activation is in effect.  A community citation is issued to all residents that fail to evacuate, whereby the judicial process may levy fines ($250) and sanctions (community service) for each violation.

 

g. Fire Safety Education:  Various training and educational seminars are conducted during the summer orientation sessions with students.  Residence Assistants, graduate assistants and assistant directors in Student Life are the first group of students to undergo annual fire safety training.  Locations of Rally points, evacuation procedures, and apartment style kitchen fire safety tips are all delivered by the Environmental Health and Safety Department (EHS).  During numerous sessions such as new employee orientation training, departmental training sessions and fire prevention week, EHS delivers fire safety and fire prevention tips to the entire campus community.  Students are trained on how to extinguish a small kitchen grease fire with a variety of extinguishers after a classroom session on fire extinguisher use.  Rally Point Maps and other pertinent emergency evacuation training is conducted for all new employees, student life staff and posted on Loyola’s intranet.  Public Safety Officers receive over ten hours of in depth new hire fire safety training, including at least two hours of hands-on fire alarm system field training.  EHS consists of a staff of four individuals that have direct responsibility for fire alarm systems, maintenance, inspections, testing and the overall fire safety program.

 

h. Contact points for reporting fires:  There are several methods in which a student, faculty, staff or other person within Loyola’s community can report a fire. If you wish to report that a fire has occurred please contact one of the following individuals or departments; Public Safety or Environmental Health and Safety.

a. Director of Public Safety x2863

b. Director of Environmental Health and Safety x1120

c. Chief Fire Safety Officer x2972

d. Fire Alarm Technician x1121  

e. Environmental Compliance Coordinator x1142

 

i. During an emergency:  Please call x5911in order to report the fire; this is the main Public Safety emergency number.  A variety of other methods can be used to report a fire, whether it is outside a residence hall (i.e. mulch fires) or within the confines of a building.

 

a. Blue light emergency phones - call button goes directly to the Public Safety Operator.

 

b. Elevator phones - call button goes directly to the Public Safety Operator.

 

c. Any Loyola phone – call 911 to directly report a fire to the BCFD, give proper street address when talking to a fire dispatcher; Public Safety will also respond when a 911 call is made.

 

d. Call x5010 which is the non-emergency number for Public Safety, calls are taken in the order that they are received. 

 

j. Future improvement plans:  Future improvements for fire safety include the following measures:

 

a. Mandatory Fire Safety 101 course for all in-coming freshman.

 

b. Consistent educational reinforcement for students causing nuisance alarms.

 

c. Fully sprinkled residence halls across campus (45% of all residence halls are currently sprinkled).

 

d. Upgrading of older (10-15 year life cycle) fire alarm systems in order to maintain current technologies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

k. Fire Statistics (Residence Halls):

a. The residence halls statistics for the period of January through December 2011 can be found on the last page of this booklet. 

 

b. No arsons were reported for the year of 2011, therefore no arsons need to be reported in the crime statistics.

 

l. Description of Residence Hall Fire Alarm Systems: 
All residence halls are equipped with stand alone fire alarm systems that are then connected through a dedicated wide area fiber optic network.  The network is supported by a proprietary central monitoring station which is backed-up with emergency power at the Public Safety Dispatch console.  These fire alarm systems are also backed up with battery power at each building, and contain all monitoring of sprinkler, suppression, detection and relay devices.  There are smoke detectors in nearly every bedroom (minimum of one smoke detector per apartment) and 24/7 monitoring that meets, or in most cases exceeds the National Fire Alarm Code requirements.
