Victims of crimes against persons are encouraged to seek confidential counseling from campus professional counselors and/or pastoral counselors.  While the details of an incident discussed with these counselors remain confidential, the victim can authorize the counselor to provide related “statistical data” to the respective security offices for inclusion in this annual report.  Individuals may also report incidents to the Johns Hopkins Compliance Line, an independently administered, toll-free hot line at 1-877-WE COMPLY (1‑877-932-6675).

University-wide, committees of the eight campuses and the Homewood-based Carey Business School and the School of Education meet in keeping with their individual and collective needs to discuss security policies and issues applicable to their campus and the university as a whole.

The Homewood, Medical Institutions and Peabody campuses, having on-campus resident students, each provide security services 24 hours a day through a recognized standing law enforcement unit.  The Applied Physics Laboratory has a 24-hour security presence in keeping with the requirements of operating as a “Prime Contractor.”  The administrative staffs of the University’s Downtown, Columbia, Montgomery County, Washington Centers, and the School of Advanced International Studies have tailored their security services to meet the specific needs of their respective commuting student bodies.  All embrace a community-oriented approach to campus safety.

Johns Hopkins University is fully committed to maintaining a safe campus environment.  The possession, wearing, carrying, transporting or use of a firearm or pellet weapon is strictly forbidden on university and hospital premises.  The possession of knives or other dangerous weapons, except under the supervision of authorized university or hospital personnel, is also strictly forbidden.  The possession, use or distribution of illegal drugs as defined by federal, state and local statutes is prohibited at any time on university property.  Maryland and District of Columbia laws prohibit the possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages by persons under the age of 21.  The university expects its students, faculty and staff to follow the law.  Those who violate the law may be subject to university disciplinary measures in addition to criminal penalties.  Moreover, the university will not excuse acts of misconduct committed by persons whose judgment is impaired due to alcohol or other drugs.

Sexual assault programs are available to all students through the Homewood Office of the Dean of Student Life, Center for Health Wellness and Education, and the students’ Sexual Assault Response Unit. These programs, comprising lecture and discussion, written and on-line publications, and self defense classes, promote an awareness of rape, acquaintance rape and other sex offenses, of how to report and obtain help, if a victim, and of the importance of preserving evidence.  They are a collaborative effort between students and staff and occur throughout the academic year.  In addition to presentations of general appeal on assault issues, specific programs are conducted for new students, resident students and members of athletic teams and Greek organizations.  Support and advocacy for student victims of sexual assault are provided by student peer services through an assault hotline and peer counseling, the Counseling and Student Development Center, the Student Health and Wellness Center, the Office of the Dean of Student Life and the Office of Residential Life.  Faculty and staff are encouraged to avail themselves of the services offered through the Sexual Harassment Prevention and Resolution Program, the Office of

Institutional Equity or the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program.

UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES

 

Homewood Campus

 

The 140-acre Homewood campus, located in North Baltimore, is the primary location for the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the G.W.C. Whiting School of Engineering, Carey Business School and the School of Education. Combined full-time enrollment through the Schools of Arts and Sciences and Engineering for the 2008 spring semester was 4,429 undergraduates, 1,529 graduate students, and 141 postdoctoral fellows.  Over 2,700 students reside in university housing, dormitories, and apartment buildings.  Supporting the Homewood campus student population are approximately 6,000 faculty and staff. 

 

 

CAMPUS SECURITY AUTHORITY

      Campus Safety and Security is the recognized law enforcement agency of the Homewood campus. It maintains the web site http://www.jhu.edu/~security for the daily publication of crimes known to have occurred both on and off campus, in residential halls and in university-owned buildings, as well as on public property contiguous to the campus.  This web site, accessible through the university home page (http://www.jhu.edu), also provides crime prevention information and personal safety tips.  Campus Safety and Security embraces a community-based philosophy, striving to prevent crime, provide assistance to victims and investigate reported incidents in cooperation with other campus authorities and city, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.  A close working relationship is maintained with the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) and in any serious or major criminal incident on the Homewood campus, BPD would be the primary investigative agency. Campus Safety and Security would serve in a support role in assisting in the investigation.

 Crime and safety concerns may be reported to the department by calling the on-campus emergency numbers 410-516-7777 or 911, sending e-mail to security@jhu.edu or activating any of the 113 campus emergency phones for an immediate Campus Officer response.  Uniformed officers maintain highly visible patrols 24 hours a day and are accessible to anyone wishing to report any incident.  The prompt reporting of crime is encouraged through various publications and program reminders.

Under the direction of an Executive Director, Campus Safety and Security employs 61 special police officers.  All are commissioned by the State of Maryland with full arrest powers on university property throughout Maryland. Most of these uniformed, highly trained professionals have graduated from accredited law enforcement academies.  They do not carry firearms.  All newly hired police officers receive formal entry level training, which includes laws of arrest, stop and frisk, evidence, community policing, crime prevention, cultural diversity, hate crimes, sexual harassment, and first aid/AED.  Annual refresher training provided to all staff enables them to keep pace with the varied security service demands.  An administrative coordinator, office assistant and a hi-tech state-of-the-art Homewood Communications Center support Campus Safety and Security operations.  The Homewood Communications Center is operational 24 hours a day under the supervision of a Security Systems Manager and a staff that includes a security systems technician, LAN administrator and 12 security systems specialists.

Contract security guards are assigned to various on and off-campus locations.  They provide a visible uniformed presence targeted at preventative patrol and provide extra eyes and ears for campus police officers.  The contract guards attend a pre-deployment entrance-level training program as prescribed by the university and guard service company. They also attend an annual in-service training through their agency.   

      Off-duty armed uniformed Baltimore Police Officers are  employed during specific times and assigned to areas adjacent to campus along Charles Street, St Paul Street, University Parkway and the Charles Village.

Part-time employees from the surrounding communities serve as security escort van drivers.  Members of the Security Escort Van Service are trained and held accountable for the safety and security of their passengers in keeping with the scope of their employment. During the school year, students are employed as security monitors, supplemental escort van drivers and escort dispatchers, bringing the total number of campus police officers, security guards, and support staff to over 250.  All members of the department, regardless of job title or position, are held to the same high standard of professional conduct. 

Campus Safety and Security provides full security services to the Homewood campus community around the clock.  It functions in concert with the several other service-oriented offices to ensure a safe and secure environment in which students, faculty and staff may enjoy rewarding academic and social experiences.  To this end, Campus Safety and Security maintains an open-door policy and works in partnership with students, faculty, staff and the community. A close working relationship exists between Campus Safety and Security, the Dean of Student Life, the directors of Residential Life, Housing, Counseling and Student Development, and Multicultural Student Affairs.  In keeping with its community-based philosophy, Campus Safety and Security strives to keep officers on regular posts and foster positive rapport with all members of the campus community.

In keeping with the requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, pastoral counselors and professional counselors are encouraged, where they deem appropriate, to inform victims of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary, confidential basis for inclusion in the annual report of crime statistics.   

 

Campus Safety and Security is a member of the Homewood Campus Safety Workgroup and the Homewood Safety and Security Committee. The Security Committee includes students, parents, administrators, and community representation. The Security Committee addresses safety and crime issues and offers viable input to ensure a safe campus.

Through liaison with local police agencies and the community, Campus Safety and Security monitors and records any criminal activity that students may be responsible for at off-campus facilities under the control of recognized student organizations.

Campus security and local emergency services, including Baltimore City police, fire or ambulance, can be summoned through the security dispatcher from any campus phone by dialing 6-7777.  The 6-7777 number is widely published in campus and university brochures and other media.  The universal 911 number may also be used to reach the security dispatcher from any on-campus phone.

Campus Safety and Security encourages recommendations from its members, faculty, other staff and students for ways to better protect the Johns Hopkins University community as may be needed.  The department has also scheduled evening walks around campus with the dean of student life, the director of plant operations and student representatives to identify hazards and areas in need of improved lighting, pruning, upgraded locks, etc.  Cooperative efforts and partnership is the keystone of providing the best possible security services to the Homewood  campus.

 
SECURITY POLICIES
 
Security and Access to Academic, Research and Residential Halls
Campus academic and research halls are open during normal business hours, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday, and at other times to accommodate scheduled classes and activities.  Faculty, staff and students may also be granted access to buildings by Campus Safety and Security officers for study, research or other legitimate purposes.

Non-commuting freshmen and sophomores are required to live in university housing.  Student residence halls are secured at all times and may be entered only by key and/or electronic access card or when escorted by a hall resident.  Residence halls are equipped with fire and access door alarm systems.  On-campus residence halls have contract security guards at the turnstiles on duty 24 hours a day.  Campus Police officers patrol the perimeter and common areas of these buildings.  Three undergraduate residence halls (Wolman, McCoy, and Charles Commons) across the street from campus have security guards stationed at the desk/turnstiles with a campus police officer patrolling the perimeter and common areas of these facilities as well as adjacent university-owned property 24 hours a day.  University-owned apartment buildings (Homewood and  Bradford ) are staffed by contract security guards 24 hours a day.  The Housing Department’s lock shop ensures the proper functioning of all residential door locks and is on emergency call 24 hours a day.

 

CAMPUS AWARENESS

While the Homewood campus and environs are relatively

safe, believing a well-informed community is better able to protect itself against the occurrence of crime, Campus Safety and Security is committed to encouraging crime reporting, preserving evidence and promptly informing the university community of incidents that may occur on or near the campus:

 

DAILY CRIME LOG – A daily crime log is maintained and is available for public view in keeping with the 1998 amendments to the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.

 

SECURITY INFORMATION ALERTS – are widely distributed by Campus Safety and Security officers and resident advisors, who post them on bulletin boards in residence and academic halls and in other conspicuous places around the campus to promptly alert the community of violent incidents that occur on or near the Homewood campus.  Campus Safety and Security has a self-imposed policy to promptly distribute alerts after receiving a report of a crime against person (murder, sexual assault, robbery or aggravated assault) on or near campus. 

 

SECURITY INFORMATION FLYERS – are posted promptly to inform the campus community of crimes other than crimes against person occurring on or contiguous to university property.  All alerts and flyers contain timely crime prevention tips.

 

WEB PAGE – http://www.jhu.edu/~security – This site reflects all reported crimes and security alerts.  It is updated daily. 

 

E-MAIL – security@jhu.edu – All reported crimes and security alerts are e-mailed on a daily basis weekdays to student residential advisors, student organizations and university staff.  Additionally crime alerts are entered in the University’s “Today’s Announcements” which is received by all university staff having a university E-mail address. Student and staff concerns may be sent to Campus Safety and Security’s Office by e-mail as well. 

 

DAILY INCIDENT REPORT – Distributed via e-mail and posted on the department’s web page.  The Daily Incident Report is published every weekday morning detailing crime reported during the previous 24 hours or weekend.  It is e-mailed to more than 100 university administrators and managers, including the president, provost, vice presidents, deans and student life directors.  Additionally, it is e-mailed to all resident advisors and student leaders.  It is also emailed to Peabody Institute Security, Northern District Police, the Charles Village Community Benefits District and other additional university offices.  A paper copy is posted outside of Shriver Hall’s Campus Safety and Security Office.  These Daily Incident Reports also contain a daily safety or crime prevention tip which serves to remind students, faculty and staff that awareness and reasonable precaution should be part of everyone’s daily routine.

 

CAMPUS SECURITY SERVICES

Campus Police Officers and Contract Security Guards are available 24 hours a day.

 

Visible Uniformed Patrols

-         24-hour foot, motorized, Segway, T-3, club car, and bicycle coverage on and adjacent to campus.

-         24-hour uniformed presence at the entrance/turnstiles and perimeter of the on campus AMR’s (Alumni Memorial Residence Halls).

-         24-hour uniformed presence at the front desks/turnstiles of the Wolman, McCoy and Charles Commons residence halls, the entrances to the desks at the Homewood and Bradford Apartments (off-campus university-owned residence halls). Positive identification of all guests and visitors is required before allowing entry.   Of note, the Bradford Apartment building is equipped with an intercom system that requires guests to speak with a tenant before being allowed to enter the building.  This system is also paired with a video camera, allowing residents to use their computers and positively identify their guests at the door before allowing the guest entrance into the building.

-         24-hour bike patrols adjacent to campus in the Charles Village community, a popular student gathering and shopping area.

-         Officers join with center staff to provide security at the Athletic Center during its open hours.

-         Dedicated off-campus community patrols in marked Campus Safety and Security patrol vehicles and Segway Personal Transports, fulfilling a university commitment to the surrounding neighborhoods where many students, faculty and staff from Homewood, Peabody and the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions reside. 

-         Club Car patrol of the San Martin Garage during the 3 PM to 11 PM shift.  Security Officers assigned the unit provide a more visible security presence and offer rides to motorists walking in the garage. 

 

Security Systems (Smart CCTV, Emergency Phones)

On June 1, 2006, Campus Safety and Security opened a “first of its kind” state-of-the-art communications center. This secure facility, named Homewood Communication Center, is staffed 24 hours a day with Security Systems Specialists who are responsible for call taking and dispatching requests for security-related services, monitoring of the CCTV cameras mounted in and around the Homewood Campus, monitoring intrusion and fire alarms on University properties, and maintaining constant communications with the Baltimore City Police and Fire Departments.

The University has been installing “Smart CCTV” systems using behavioral recognition software to identify suspicious or unusual behaviors, focusing primarily on the exterior of residence halls and their surroundings and areas where students congregate. The behavioral recognition software reacts to persons, vehicles, or objects according to parameters defined by Campus Safety and Security, and alerts the CCTV operator whenever an event occurs and facilitates an appropriate level of response.  The current number of ”Smart CCTV” cameras has increased to 166, with additional cameras planned as the area of coverage expands.

There are 113 blue light emergency phones on and around campus. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to familiarize themselves with their locations and operation.  The push of the red button activates the siren, light and phone and the location is displayed to the Security Systems Specialist who immediately dispatches Hopkins officers.  Emergency phones are self testing and any service requirement is promptly reported to the Telecommunications Department.  An out-of-service phone is clearly marked and promptly repaired.

 

Off-Duty Baltimore Police Initiative

      Campus Safety and Security employs a cadre of Off-duty armed uniformed Baltimore City police officers to walk foot patrols on public streets contiguous to campus, most frequented by Hopkins students.   These added patrols add yet another layer of security to the Hopkins multi-layer security strategy.  The patrols are employed throughout the week during targeted hours most susceptible to high student foot traffic.   The current foot posts for these officers are along Charles Street, St Paul Street, University Parkway and in the Charles Village neighborhood. Regular assessments are conducted to determine where these valuable resources are most beneficial for student safety and adjusted accordingly.

 

Emergency Notification Systems

      Johns Hopkins University employs a multi-tiered series of emergency notification protocols in the event of a significant emergency or dangerous situation that presents an immediate threat to the health or safety of students, faculty, or staff on the Homewood campus. Upon confirmation of a significant incident that presents imminent danger various notification systems will be used, without delay, to reach the maximum audience unless issuing a notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

 

      Campus Safety and Security will confirm there is a significant emergency and immediately start the multi-tiered emergency notification protocols.  All appropriate parties, i.e., law enforcement, fire/emergency rescue and senior campus officials will also be notified.  The campus-wide notification will be initiated by using the Whelen siren/emergency notification system and the JHEA text messaging system.  The Executive Director of Campus Safety and Security will initiate this process as well as approve the content of the notification.  In the Executive Director’s absence, the highest ranking police official on campus (Major for Operations or a shift commander) will act in this capacity.  Any dissemination of emergency information to the larger community, if appropriate, will be initiated by city or state officials.    

 

Siren/Public Address System

      A critical component of the university’s emergency notification system was implemented with the installation of three Siren/Mass notification devices on the roofs of Garland Hall, Whitehead Hall, and the O’Connor Recreational Center. These devices are strategically located around the campus to provide maximum coverage of the campus and the surrounding community.

      Should a confirmed incident which presents an immediate danger to the Homewood campus occur, the siren/public address system will be activated to sound a one-minute warning tone, followed by voice instructions notifying the campus community of an emergency.

      During the course of any emergency, additional instructions can be broadcast using these devices, either singly or as a group.

      Once the incident has been resolved, an all-clear tone and message will be broadcasted.

The system has an internal “silent” self-test feature that will activate each of the three units weekly.  Announced “Live” tests will be conducted three times a year (Fall, Spring, Summer) to familiarize the Homewood Community with the sound system.

 

Emergency Alert (JHEA) Text Messaging

      As a supplement to the current methods of emergency communication, the University has implemented a cell phone text-messaging alert system. In the event of a confirmed major incident that threatens the safety of the campus community, Campus Safety and Security will immediately send a text message alert to the students, faculty and staff who have subscribed for the service, notifying them of the incident.

      Members can subscribe to the service on the MyJHED tab after logging in at https://my.johnshopkins.edu/.  The JHEA system is tested concurrently with the siren/public address system.

 

Broadcast Email Messaging/Broadcast Voicemail

If an incident should occur, a broadcast email will be sent to all subscribers providing resources for additional information as soon as possible.

This information will also be broadcast to all subscribers’ office phones as a voice mail message.

 

Emergency Web Page/Emergency Phone Line

      The University maintains a special web page for Emergency Notices at http://esgwebproxy.Johnshopkins .edu/ notice/. During the course of any major event, important information is constantly updated on this page.

      An Emergency ‘Hot’ Line is also updated to provide information to callers. This line can be reached by calling 410-516-7781.

 

Bull Horns

Select units patrolling the Homewood campus are equipped with bull horns for announcing instructions and information to supplement the other technologies to ensure that maximum communication is achieved.

 

Evacuations

      Building Evacuation maps are located on all floors in all buildings on the Homewood Campus. Should there be a need to evacuate, follow the recommended evacuation route on the map.  Once outside, adhere to the directions of Campus Security, Campus Safety Officer or local public safety official (police/fire).  Evacuation procedures in place meet ADA compliance.

      In the event a particular evacuation requires evacuees to be relocated to an alternative shelter, shelter locations on campus have been designated. Evacuees will be directed to those locations by Campus Security, Campus Safety Officer or local public safety official (police/fire). 

 

Gunshot Detection System

      The Hopkins Gunshot Detection System consists of an array of 93 wireless sensors arranged over a portion of Charles Village and Remington adjacent to the Homewood Campus. These sensors detect any loud, percussive noise and transmit the sound and location to a central processor, which analyzes the noise to determine if the sound was from a gunshot. The exact location is triangulated and a graphic display appears in the Homewood Communication Center. The displayed event is laid over a map of the area, giving location accuracy to within ten feet. When a gunshot is detected, Homewood Communication Center staff  notify the Baltimore Police Department and Campus Safety and Security officers over the joint radio link for the appropriate response.

 

Neighborhood Walkers On Patrol

    In partnership with the Charles Village Neighborhood Associations, Baltimore Police, and the Hopkins University Community a “Neighborhood Walkers On Patrol” program was established in an effort to increase personal and public safety of the surrounding neighborhoods. The primary objective is to augment police and security patrols in the neighborhoods with walking resident groups which in turn serve as additional “eyes and ears” for the Baltimore Police. The walkers receive training on how to detect suspicious or criminal behavior and are provided a direct point of contact for reporting the incident to the Baltimore Police Northern District. This program takes a proactive approach to community policing while creating goodwill and camaraderie among Charles Village residents and the Hopkins University Community. The walks are scheduled in the evening hours throughout the week by respective neighborhood associations during times that best serves their recruitment and participation efforts. In addition to the aforementioned walks, Johns Hopkins University Campus Security sponsors a special walk for the Hopkins University community each Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. during the Fall and Spring semesters.

 

Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) Training For Women

      Campus Safety and Security and the Office of the Dean of Student Life, implemented R.A.D. training for students, faculty, and staff.  The program is a comprehensive women only program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. It begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing to the basics of hands-on defense training. The course is taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors. 

 

Hopkins Crime Watch Program

      Campus Safety and Security, in cooperation with the Baltimore Police Department, initiated a crime watch program on the Homewood Campus.  Known as Hopkins Crime Watch, the concept is similar to the Baltimore Police Department’s Block Watch Program. Students, faculty, and staff are enlisted to serve as added “eyes and ears” in the surrounding communities. Their purpose is to anonymously report suspicious activity directly to the Baltimore Police using a unique Hopkins Crime Watch number which allows a more rapid response to the incident.    

 

Investigative Services

Following the report of criminal activity:

-         Every effort is made to identify perpetrators and recover

  stolen property.

-         Investigators provide support for student, faculty and staff victims throughout the reporting process and subsequent criminal proceedings.  They encourage students to avail themselves of Johns Hopkins University physical and mental health services when appropriate.

-         Investigators enjoy a close working relationship with the Baltimore Police Department and other law enforcement agencies and work in concert with them to solve crimes impacting students, faculty and staff, regardless of the agency to whom the crime may have been reported.

-         Investigators work closely with university administrators and student affairs staff to handle student-related issues administratively when possible.

-         Investigators ensure the timely publication of appropriate alerts to the campus community.

-         Investigators ensure the timely, accurate maintenance of the Daily Crime Log available to the public in the Shriver Hall’s Campus Safety and Security Office.

-         Through close liaison with the Baltimore Police Department, incidents occurring at off-campus locations of student organizations officially recognized by the university, including student organizations with off-campus housing facilities, are reported to the appropriate student affairs offices for dissemination through the various reporting media.

 

Access Control

The university’s Lock Shop at Homewood under Facilities Management, works in cooperation with Campus Safety and Security, University Deans, Directors of Housing and Residential Life, Department Heads, building managers and key coordinators to ensure locking issues are addressed.  This shop makes necessary lock changes to ensure the security of university buildings both on and off the Homewood campus and provides training for all new officers to assist them in better addressing lock problems they may encounter.

 Campus Safety and Security through the computer terminal located at the Homewood Communications Center, deactivates lost access cards during periods when the J-Card office is closed.

 

Shuttle Service to Peabody, Mount Washington Center, the Medical Institutions and JHU at Eastern

Through the office of Facilities Management’s oversight of a contract bus service, daily shuttle departures and returns provide transportation for students, faculty, staff and guests between Homewood, Peabody, Mount Washington Center and the Medical Institutions.  Security is ensured through the close cooperation of the security departments of these campuses, the Baltimore Police Department and the contract bus company.

Security Escort Services  (x6-8700 from any campus phone or 410-516-8700 from non-campus phones)

Homewood security escort services include security escort vans, emergency taxicab service and walking escorts.

 

Security Escort Vans

This free service is an integral part of Campus Safety and Security, transporting more than 10,000 passengers during peak months.  It is designed to enhance the safety and security of members traveling to and from the Homewood campus and within the surrounding communities.  Drivers provide an additional security watch throughout the off-campus communities driven.

This service operates from 5:30 PM to 12:00 Midnight daily within a one-mile radius of the center of campus, providing both fixed-route and on-demand service. 

After 10:00 PM, van transports are limited to those traveling between campus and their residence. After 3:00 AM, limited transports are provided by a Johns Hopkins security patrol vehicle.

 

Walking Escorts

Student security monitors are available throughout the school year from 6:00 PM to midnight daily and may be posted on the Wyman and Keyser quadrangles, and at Wolman Hall and the Alumni Memorial Residences. These security monitors carry radios that keep them in constant contact with the security dispatcher.  They wear highly visible “florescent yellow” vests with reflective lettering reading “Campus Security Monitor” for ease of identification.

 

Emergency Taxi Cab Service

Through contract with local private cab services, stranded students (outside of the escort area) will be returned to campus by calling the security dispatcher at 410-516-4600.

 

Security Awareness Presentations

At freshman orientation and throughout the school year,  Campus Safety and Security addresses the student body on security matters and methods to enhance their personal safety.   It also provides knowledgeable speakers for summer programs, resident advisors, the student council and others on request.  These speakers address a variety of timely campus security topics and encourage students to report crimes and other emergencies to Campus Safety and Security as quickly as possible and to become partners responsible for their security and the security of others. 

There are also security publications which includes a weekly e-mail sent to resident advisors to post in their respective areas and to use in open discussions with students in their care.  Seasonal bulletins published throughout the year and distributed on and around campus, also provide a variety of timely safety tips. 

Once a month, Campus Safety and Security joins with Homewood Human Resources to address new university employees on security procedures and practices to enhance their personal safety on campus as well as crime prevention techniques.  The department encourages all employees to report crimes in a timely fashion to the appropriate law enforcement authorities and to be responsible for their own safety and the safety of others.

 A bi-monthly “Meet and Greet” session is held at different locations on campus throughout the school year.  This affords interested persons the opportunity to speak directly with a campus police officer, ask questions, voice concerns or make suggestions.  As an added feature, pens, bookmarks, security whistles, and other materials with emergency security and escort phone numbers are given to all that come to the session.

 Campus Safety and Security also meets regularly with the Student Council’s Security and Facilities Committee.  These meetings allow for an open and frank exchange of ideas to enhance student safety and security both on and off  campus.  Student recommendations have significant value and are seriously considered.

 

Security Poster Program

      Campus Safety and Security initiated a poster program  designed to provide a proactive approach to safety awareness using relevant topics at a university setting such as personal safety, theft, rape, substance abuse, binge drinking, sexual harassment, etc.  The poster program provides security another means to communicate specific safety awareness themes to the students, faculty, and staff.

The Peabody Institute

 

The Johns Hopkins Peabody Institute Campus is located in the center of Baltimore City’s historic Mount Vernon section.  The main campus occupies one entire city block.  It contains six buildings covering 405,000 square feet.  A one-story satellite branch, used by the Preparatory department, is located in the Towson area of Baltimore County at 949 Dulaney Valley Road.  The city campus consists of the Conservatory, Preparatory, Residence Halls and several other buildings, including a parking garage.  The campus has approximately 650 Conservatory students with a resident student capacity of 200.  The campus has a faculty and staff of 330 and a Preparatory student population of 2,200. The Peabody Elderhostel Program, hosting 84 weekly senior citizen participants, is also located here.

The Peabody Campus Security Department provides a full range of security services to the campus community 24 hours a day.  It maintains the web site http://www.peabody.jhu.edu/campuspolice for daily publication of crimes known to have occurred both on and off campus, in the residential halls and in Peabody owned buildings, as well as on public property contiguous to the campus. The operation of the Department is based on a community-oriented approach to law enforcement. A close working relationship is maintained with the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) and in any serious or major criminal incident on the Peabody Campus, BPD would be the primary investigative agency. Campus Security would serve in a support role in assisting in the investigation. Community focus is greatly enhanced through the Department’s continuous contact with other service-oriented offices, and many other security agencies in the surrounding downtown area of the city.  As members of the Baltimore’s Downtown Public Safety Coalition and The Midtown Benefits Security Committee, the Peabody Campus Security Department actively participates in this multi-agency network to reduce the threat of off-campus crimes to faculty, staff, students and guests of Peabody.

 

Headed by a director, the Security Department supports a staff of 30, consisting of 7 full-time uniformed Special Police Officers, commissioned by the State of Maryland with full arrest powers on all Institute property.  Additionally, there are 4 security officers, 1 full time and 4 part-time dispatchers and 14 casual/part time officers who assist with special events and other activities on the campus.  The Special Police Officers are unarmed, trained professionals, some having graduated from law enforcement academies and possessing many years of practical law enforcement experience.  All of the officers undergo annual training conducted by qualified in-house professionals or local law enforcement agencies.  Officers also attend training sessions on cultural diversity, sexual harassment, rape crisis, first aid, CPR and public relations communication.  The Department has a close working partnership with the faculty, staff and students toward ensuring a safe campus environment.  A close working relationship is maintained with the Dean of Student Affairs, Counseling, Directors of Student Services and International Student Affairs.

During the academic year, the department’s 24-hour communication center is staffed with 1 full time and 3 part –time security dispatchers.  The center is located in the Shapiro House. All members of the department are held to the same standard of professional conduct and are held accountable for the safety and security of the campus community.

Campus buildings are open seven days a week from 6:00 AM to 2:00 AM.  Access to campus for all authorized personnel is 24 hours. Entrances to the campus are secured at all times and are equipped with an intercom system connecting directly to the campus security office.  Campus Access is made through the use of an individual’s “Card-Key Access” identification card.  Campus security monitors the use of these cards.  Campus access control ensures that the student dormitories are secured at all times.  Individual guests and/or visitors without a “Card-Key,” are granted access to the campus through the main entrance, located at 17 East Mt. Vernon Place, only after presenting satisfactory identification to ensure their identity.  The Campus Security Department maintains a 24-hour foot patrol of the entire campus while also monitoring campus activity on electronic surveillance equipment.

The Campus Security and/or local emergency services, including Baltimore Police, Fire or ambulance, can be obtained via the Campus Security Dispatcher from any emergency campus telephone or by calling 410-234-4600. Emergency contact with the dispatchers can also be made by simply picking up one of the direct security ring-down telephones, located throughout campus hallways or by using any of the intercoms located at all exterior entrances.

Missing Student Notification Policy

      As a requirement of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (amended) and in an effort to assist in ensuring the safety of our residential students, Johns Hopkins University has established a missing student notification policy that requires the University to alert an emergency contact designated by the student and/or the student’s parents as well as local law enforcement if the student has been missing for more than 24 hours. 

      All students are asked to provide the name and phone number of an emergency contact person with the information that is collected by the Registrar’s Office.  This information is accessible to authorized campus officials who have the responsibility of notification and law enforcement officers in furtherance of a missing person investigation.  The following procedures apply to all notifications:

 

·    If an individual becomes aware that a residential student has been missing for more than 24 hours they should immediately report the situation to Campus Security at 410-234-4600.  A campus security officer is available to respond to a call 24/7 and will initiate contact with the Associate Dean of Student Affairs, the Director of Campus Security and make the other necessary contacts to initiate action by campus security and other law enforcement officials.

 

·    The Associate Dean of Student Affairs notifies the Director and Deputy Director of The Peabody Institute.

 

·    Campus Security Officers will gather the details of the situation and inform the Associate Dean of Student Affairs so that the designated emergency contact can be notified as soon as possible.

 

·    In the case that the missing student is under the age of 18 and not emancipated, their parent(s) or guardian(s) will be notified as well.

 

·    Local law enforcement will be notified in all cases even if the student has not provided an emergency contact and the University will provide the necessary information to assist in locating the missing student.

 

·    Individuals who are concerned about someone who has not been missing for 24 hours but has failed to return to his/her residence are also encouraged to contact Campus Security.

 

  • If the circumstances related to a student’s disappearance appear to be related to foul play, i.e., kidnapping or other criminal acts, then the appropriate notifications and actions should be initiated immediately, even if the student has been missing for less than 24 hours.

 

    Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions

 

      The Medical Institutions, consisting of the School of Medicine, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, School of Nursing, Kennedy Krieger Institute and the Johns Hopkins Hospital are located within the eastern sector of Baltimore City.  The Institutes comprise more than 59 buildings located on 53.4 acres.  Approximately 1,500 students are enrolled with a full complement of faculty and staff.

      The Johns Hopkins Medicine Corporate Security Department, a staff of over 300 uniformed (unarmed) officers providing interior, exterior and mobile patrols, operates on a 24‑hour basis to assist and respond to emergency or security related incidents.  Strategically placed electronic surveillance equipment and a radio communications center support the Security Department’s response to security incidents. This system increases the ability of security personnel to pinpoint areas of concern.  Security officers may be summoned via any number of in‑house phones by calling 410‑955‑5585.  The x5-5585 number may also be used to summon local police or emergency services through the central Security Communications Office.  Security documents and departmental publications prominently display this information. For emergency notifications during emergency operations/critical events, text messages will be sent promptly via the Johns Hopkins Emergency Alert System, to all staff and students subscribed to the service.   

     Corporate Security works in close concert with the Baltimore Police Department concerning the apprehension of criminal offenders, investigations, crime awareness programs and crime prevention programs.  Although JHMI security officers do not have arrest powers, a contingent of uniformed off‑duty Baltimore Police Officers with full arrest powers, paid by the Institutions, perform duties at various inside and outside locations of the complex. 

     Most campus buildings remain open 24 hours a day.  Students, faculty and staff may gain access to restricted areas, e.g. dormitories or libraries, by key or access card, depending on the location.  All areas are patrolled by security officers in addition to security officers assigned to specific access locations.  All unusual or suspicious activities/persons are investigated and appropriate action taken when necessary.  Security mobile units support interior and exterior security officers.  Personal escorts by security officers are available for all faculty, staff and students.

    Security‑related information is published regularly in the “Hopkins Hotline” and via Security Alerts.

Montgomery County Campus

 

     The Montgomery County Campus is located on 38 acres in Rockville, MD.  The University has located four of its eight schools in Montgomery County in order to serve the working population.  The Krieger School of Arts and Science, Whiting School of Engineering, Carey Business School and the School of Education, and Bloomberg School of Public Health have all established programs at the Montgomery County Campus.  Over forty master's degree programs are offered and approximately 8,000 students are enrolled in the part-time evening graduate programs.  There are 50 administrative staff members and 350 university and adjunct faculty members who travel to and from the campus to teach.  The Montgomery County Campus is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  The campus is closed on Sundays and University holidays which are listed in the catalogs.  There are no residence halls on the Montgomery County campus.

      The campus security coordinator, augmented by contract guards, operations manager/service coordinator, staff members, and building engineers monitor the campus.  The security coordinator, contract guards and staff members on duty conduct random security rounds of the buildings and grounds during the day and evening when the campus is open.  All emergencies and/or incidents are reported to the front desk (security desk) in the lobby to be resolved.  The campus security coordinator notifies the operations manager/services coordinator of any situation in an incident report.  All incidents are reviewed and are promptly addressed to prevent further occurrences.  Public telephones are located on the first floor with emergency numbers posted above the phone stations.

      The Montgomery County Campus uses Triton as its security service.  There is a security guard in Building 3 during business hours, from 7:00a.m. to 11:00p.m.  In the A&R Building there is a Triton guard any time we have students or events in the building from 7:00am to 3:00p.m. From 3:00p.m.  to 11:00p.m. there is a Triton guard again, under the same conditions. If there is no guard we back it up with our own security staff.  On Saturdays there is a Triton guard in the A&R Building and a member of the security staff. Should there be an event or a class on a Sunday, either a security staff member or a Triton guard covers.  To strengthen our overall security even further we have security cameras in all three buildings.  These cameras view all floors and each has a monitor at the front desk guard station.  There is also a roving guard in a vehicle that covers all of our parking areas.

     In the event of a campus emergency, emails, text messages and phone calls are used by guards and provost employees to get the word out across campus and to the campus community. 

Upon confirmation by security that a significant incident that presents imminent danger to faculty, staff and students exists, these notifications will be initiated, without delay, to reach the maximum audience unless issuing a notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.  Building evacuation maps are located on all floors in all buildings on the Montgomery County campus.  Security personnel on campus would assist in the event an evacuation was necessary.   

     The Montgomery County campus has a very strong relationship with the Montgomery County Police and the Sherriff’s office who meet with campus officials every 4-6 months to discuss campus and community issues.  Information is also shared with Shady Grove Hospital Security on these same matters.  In any serious or major criminal incident on the Montgomery County campus, the Montgomery County Police would be the primary investigative agency.  

      Security meetings are held with faculty, staff and tenants on security issues including Clery information and regulations.  Incidents such as the one at VirginiaTech are discussed so that responsibilities and actions can be assigned to staff.  In addition, we send out Safety & Security information (huddles) to everyone on campus on any breaking news, weather or current conditions that relate to the campus or how it could be impacted by such events.  The Montgomery County Campus Security staff also attends training provided by Homewood’s Campus Safety and Security.   

      Information containing security facts and university policies may be obtained from University websites as well as catalogues and handbooks issued by schools represented at the Montgomery County Campus.  In addition, criminal incidents and Security related information is forwarded to the JHU Homewood Security Office.

Applied Physics Laboratory (APL)

 

The Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), a division of the Johns Hopkins University, is located on a 360-acre complex in Howard County, Maryland.  The campus-like setting employs about 4,000 full-time staff members and contractors.  APL provides a vast array of scientific energies in numerous disciplines for the U.S. Government, mainly the Department of the Navy.  Designated as a “Prime Contractor” operating under the security cognizance of NAVSEA, APL is involved in many task assignments vital to national defense.  In addition to defense research, APL maintains strong academic relationships with other divisions of JHU through joint programs, seminars, exchange of lecturers and fellowships.  The APL Education Center located on-site offers continuing education credits to nearly 1,600 non-APL students.  The Center offers degrees in electrical engineering, computer science, statistics, applied physics and technical management.

The objective of the Security Group is to ensure the safety of the staff, to protect the APL facility and property and to instruct and assist staff members in preventing unauthorized disclosure of classified information to individuals who are not properly cleared or who do not have a need-to-know.  The latter is in accordance with DoD 5220.22-M, National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (attachment to DD form 441).  Whenever unusual security situations develop which vary from the written established guidance, the Security Group should be contacted.

The Security Group supervises and directs the physical and personnel security program at APL, promulgates necessary written and verbal presentations to ensure proper safeguarding of classified information at APL and at field test sites and coordinates all visit requests.

The Security Force is an integral part of the Laboratory’s overall security program.  In addition to their duties of loss prevention, the Security Force performs daily security inspections to ensure that classified material is properly safeguarded.

      Reports of irregularities and after-hours security infractions are submitted to the Security Office for corrective action.  Although the Security Force does not have arrest powers, it enjoys an excellent relationship with the Howard County Police and in any serious or major criminal incident on the APL campus, Howard County PD would be the primary investigative agency. APL Security would serve in a support role in assisting in the investigation.

The Clery regulations are reviewed by the security managers and disseminated to the appropriate staff at APL.  In emergency situations involving the limited amount of students attending classes at APL, several options to notify them are available. Personal notification by a Security Officer, phone contact directly to the affected classroom, as well as the public address system are used for ensuring information reaches the appropriate people.

Immediate Notification Procedures

      Upon confirmation of a significant incident that presents imminent danger APL’s various notification systems will be used, without delay, to reach the maximum audience unless issuing a notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.  Any dissemination of emergency information to the larger community, if appropriate, will be initiated by county or state officials.  The highest ranking shift commander on duty will make the decision to begin the emergency notification procedures.

Evacuations

      Building evacuation maps are located on all floors in all buildings on the APL Campus. Should there be a need to evacuate, follow the recommended evacuation route on the map.  Once outside, adhere to the directions of APL Security Officers or local public safety officials (police/fire).  Evacuation procedures in place meet ADA compliance.

 

Other Security Force responsibilities include:

-         Liaison with federal and local law enforcement agencies, including the Howard County Police, with whom an   excellent relationship is maintained.

-         Monitoring of all security surveillance equipment to

include fire, perimeter and classified area alarms, CCTV

   and access control systems.

-         Enforcing parking regulations.

-         Assisting motorists to start their cars when requested.

-         Providing after-hours escort service to the parking lots.

-         Supervising the use of recreational facilities.

The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS),  

      Johns Hopkins University, is a small campus of two 60,000 square foot buildings, located in the Dupont Circle area of Washington, D.C.  The two buildings which comprise SAIS are located at 1619, 1740 and the 5th, part of the 6th and 7th floors of 1717 Massachusetts Avenue NW on “Embassy Row.”  The campus consists of the immediate property on which each building stands.

      SAIS does not have campus police; the guard force responds to minor emergencies, such as the reported presence of an unauthorized person in one of the buildings.  As the guard force does not have arrest powers, the District of Columbia Police Department (universal 911 number) is called for all crimes and other emergencies.  A close working relationship is maintained with the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) and all criminal incidents on the Washington DC Center; MPD would be the primary investigative agency. Security personnel would serve in a support role in assisting in the investigation. Relationships with the DC Fire and Police Departments are excellent.

The Nitze Building at 1740 Massachusetts Avenue NW has a security guard/fire watch on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

The building is open to students only when the library is open for business:

 Information on criminal incidents on-campus is publicized through e-mail and published in a weekly calendar and annually.

Emergency Notification Systems

a. Johns Hopkins University employs a multi-tiered series of emergency notification protocols in the event of a significant emergency or dangerous situation that presents an immediate threat to the health or safety of students, faculty, or staff on the Washington DC Center. Upon confirmation of a significant incident that presents imminent danger various notification systems will be used, without delay, to reach the maximum audience unless issuing a notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist victims or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

      The Senior Associate Dean of Finance and Administration will confirm there is a significant emergency and immediately start the multi-tiered emergency notification protocols.  All appropriate parties, i.e., law enforcement, fire/emergency rescue and senior campus officials will also be notified.  The campus-wide notification will be initiated by using the notification system and the JHEA text messaging system.  The Senior Associate Dean will initiate this process as well as approve the content of the notification.  In the Senior Associate Dean’s absence, the Chief Information Officer will act in this capacity.  Any dissemination of emergency information to the larger community, if appropriate, will be initiated by city officials.   

b. Public Address System

      Should a confirmed incident which presents an immediate danger to SAIS occur, the public address system will be activated followed by voice instructions notifying the community of an emergency. During the course of any emergency, additional instructions can be broadcast using these devices, either singly or as a group. Once the incident has been resolved, an “all clear” message will be broadcasted. Announced “Live” tests will be conducted three times a year (Fall, Spring, Summer) to familiarize SAIS personnel/community with the PA sound system.

c. Emergency Alert (JHEA) Text Messaging

      As a supplement to the current methods of emergency communication, the University has implemented a cell phone text-messaging alert system. In the event of a confirmed major incident that threatens the safety of the campus community, Campus Safety and Security will immediately send a text message alert to the students, faculty and staff who have subscribed for the service, notifying them of the incident.

      Members can subscribe to the service on the MyJHED tab after logging in at https://my.johnshopkins.edu/. 

d. Broadcast Email Messaging/Broadcast Voicemail

If an incident should occur, a broadcast email will be to all subscribers providing resources for additional information as soon as possible. This information will also be broadcast to all subscribers’ office phones as a voice mail message.

e. Alert DC

      As the Washington, DC Center is located in the District of Columbia and not in a traditional campus setting, SAIS has elected to participate in the Alert DC system which provides rapid text notification and update information during a major crisis or emergency. This system delivers important alerts to email, phone, BlackBerry, pager or wireless PDA. Selected Crisis Response team members are able to send alerts.

f. Evacuations

      Building Evacuation maps are located on all floors in all buildings on the Washington DC Center. Should there be a need to evacuate, occupants should follow the recommended evacuation route on the map.  Once outside, adhere to the directions of Facilities and Security, or local public safety official (police/fire).  Evacuation procedures in place meet ADA compliance.

In the event a particular evacuation requires evacuees to be relocated to an alternative shelter, shelter locations on campus have been designated. Evacuees will be directed to those locations by Facilities and Security personnel, or local public safety official (police/fire). 

Clery Training

SAIS will familiarize students with Clery regulations during student orientation.  SAIS will also conduct staff/faculty familiarization of the Clery regulations.

Information on the University’s (and SAIS) policy regarding the abuse of drugs and alcohol is available through the Admissions Office.

Security services offered by SAIS include:

·         Free van service during the fall and spring semesters to transport students to nearby Metro stations and to student living accommodations within two miles of the SAIS buildings.  This van “delivery” service is available most evenings from 7:00 PM to 15 minutes after the Library closes. 

·         Maintenance Staff will escort members to faculty and staff cars in the limited surface or underground parking facilities.

·         Video monitors of alley, courtyard, front and rear entrances, garage entrances, and all floors at the lobby

  attendant desks.

·         Identification cards (J-cards) issued to faculty, staff and students to gain access to the front doors and rear doors;

  limited access to the garage door of the Rome building.

·         Hourly rounds by the lobby attendant in the Nitze building when the building is closed.

·         The Rome building is under security alarm system after 11:00 pm and on weekends.

·         Security presentations are held at all new student orientation sessions and informational briefings.  The student handbook contains statements on violence.

·         Faculty and Staff receive this same information from the Human Resources Office.  Special bulletins are circulated when threatening security matters arise.  The entire report is circulated and available.  q

 

SAIS Bologna Center

                                Bologna, Italy

 

The Bologna Center is a full-time, non-resident graduate school situated in the historic area of Bologna, a thriving city in northern Italy, within driving distance of Venice, Milan, Florence and Rome.  The center occupies a five-story building (Via Belmeloro 11) and three offices in the University of Bologna.  The building’s fifth floor penthouse is about one-third terrace with a conference room, four small conference rooms, and a dining and food preparation area.  An auditorium and a snack bar are located on the first floor as is a library, which spans part of the first and second floors.  There are a total of 25 offices, 9 classrooms and a language lab.  Some of the second floor office space is rented to the Bologna Italian-American association.  The Center was completely renovated in 2006/2007, and currently meets all Europe-wide mandated safety and disability access requirements.  This includes clear marking of fire exits, extinguishers, seismic compliance, and a host of other precautions for the safety of staff and students. All side exit doors have panic bars so that it is easy to exit during an emergency.  In Bologna’s crisis response plan, specific personnel have been designated to assist with evacuation to ensure that everyone is evacuated from the premises.  A specific area outside the complex has been designated as a meeting place for evacuees.    

The Bologna Center is open from 8:00 AM until 11:00 PM on weekdays and is closed on Saturday and Sunday.  The Library, which is situated inside the Bologna Center facility, has the following operating hours:

Mon - Thurs

8:30 AM to 11:00 PM

Friday

8:30 AM to 10:00 PM

Saturday

10:00 AM to 10:00 PM

Sunday

10:00 AM to 10:00 PM

The Center offers the only international relations program in Europe under the American system.  Established in 1955, the center promotes a truly international composition of faculty and staff, representing as many as 30 countries during any academic year. Its interdisciplinary program of studies places emphasis on European studies, international economics, politics and history.  Language instruction and Italian art history and literature supplement the curriculum.  All classes are conducted in English. The instruction and academic structure follow the American university model, which provides a unique opportunity for scholars from around the world to study international relations with an expert faculty in the attractive setting of Bologna, Italy.

There are 8-10 permanent faculty and 18 staff members assigned to the Center.  The Center also utilizes adjunct faculty on a regular basis as well as contracted language instructors during the intensive courses (September).  Approximately 185 students attend per academic year representing up to 37 countries.  This year, 50 percent are from the United States.  Of these students, several Arts & Sciences undergraduate students are enrolled in the “Junior Year Abroad” program at the Center.  This is a commuter campus and housing is the responsibility of the students.  Most rent apartments in the area.

The Center is headed by a Director and operates under the same policies and guidelines as SAIS in Washington, DC, to the extent that Italian law and business practice allows.  The Center maintains excellent rapport with the local authorities with an open line of communication and a history of effective and fruitful collaboration. They have agreed to provide additional security in the event of political turmoil or times of anti-American sentiment.

Due to the relative nonexistence of serious crime on the campus, the administration has not had to avail themselves significantly of the local police services. Petty crimes are reported to the authorities by telephone, fax or in person and all appropriate reports are compiled either at the Bologna Center or at the local police headquarters.  A closed-circuit television and a receptionist whose office faces the front door monitors the front entranceway.  In the event of any abnormal activity or entry of unauthorized persons, the receptionist alerts management. During non-business hours, the Center is patrolled by a private security agency.  A custodial staff member resides in the building and is present during the day and most evenings.  When the library remains open past normal business hours, the staff locks up upon leaving.  In the event of criminal activity, faculty, staff and students would be informed of all relevant details through the Director of Finance and Administration, who is responsible for the security of the Bologna Center facilities.  Should a student at the center require or feel a need for counseling, they have access to a local, English-speaking, licensed psychologist.

The terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001 have changed the security landscape somewhat.  After being open to the public for almost 50 years, the Center took steps in 2001 to restrict access to the facility and to increase perimeter surveillance.  While there have been no specific threats against the Center, the administration recognizes that as one of the few U.S. activities in the area, the Center must increase its awareness and tighten its security, at least for the time being.  Therefore, additional security cameras (with 24 hour recording) have been added to cover a greater area of the building perimeter, split-screen monitors have been installed at the front desk, in the Library, at the Snack Bar, and in the Custodian’s apartment.  In addition, a proximity card reader system has been installed on the only entryway into the building, and students and staff have been issued programmable access cards.  Members of the general public must ring a doorbell and identify themselves to the video camera before they are granted access.  Significant landscaping work has been done in the front of the building to create a more open space with less area for loitering or hiding.  Blast proof laminate has been applied to front windows to increase the safety of those inside the building. 

Given the nature of the Bologna Center program, with a relatively tight geographic concentration of its students (all in one building at any time) and limited dispersion (all students live within walking or biking distance of the Center), emergencies are usually handled on a personal basis.  For immediate notification purposes during an emergency when it is necessary to communicate with the entire class/building occupants, email is used (the Center is currently implementing a broadcast text messaging system which is expected to go live in October 2009).  q

UNIVERSITY-WIDE POLICIES

 

Policy on Possession of Firearms on University Property

The possession, wearing, carrying, transporting, or use of a firearm or pellet weapon is strictly forbidden on university

premises.  This prohibition also extends to any person who may have acquired a government-issued permit or license.  Violation of this regulation will result in disciplinary action and sanctions up to and including expulsion, in the case of students, or termination of employment, in the case of employees.  Disciplinary action for violations of this regulation will be the responsibility of the divisional student affairs officer, dean or director, or the vice president for human resources, as may be appropriate, in accordance with applicable procedures.  Any questions regarding this policy, including the granting of exceptions for law enforcement officers and for persons acting under the supervision of authorized university personnel, should be addressed to the appropriate chief campus security officer.  q

 

Policy on Sexual Assault and Procedure

 

The Johns Hopkins University is committed to providing a safe educational and working environment for its faculty, staff and students.  The University is particularly concerned about the increase in reports of sexual offenses occurring on the nation's campuses.  The University has adopted a policy addressing sexual assaults and offenses involving sexual violence in order to inform faculty, staff and students of their rights in the event they are involved in an assault and of the services available to victims of such offenses.

Members of the University community who are the victims of, or who have knowledge of, a sexual assault occurring on University property, or occurring in the course of a University sponsored activity, or perpetrated by a member of the University community, are urged to report the incident to campus authorities promptly. Persons who are victims of sexual assault will be advised by campus security of their option to file criminal charges with local police of the jurisdiction where the sexual assault occurred.  Campus security and the Office of the General Counsel will provide assistance to a complainant wishing to reach law enforcement authorities.

A victim of an assault on University property should immediately notify campus security who will arrange for transportation to the nearest hospital. Persons who have been sexually assaulted will be taken to one of the two hospitals in Baltimore City designated as rape treatment centers.  They are Mercy Hospital, 301 St. Paul Place (410)-332-9000 at (410) 332-9499 and University of Maryland Hospital, 22 S. Greene St. (410) 328-8667. These hospitals are equipped with the State Police Sexual Assault Evidence Collection Kit.

The University will provide counseling to any member of the Hopkins community who is a victim of sexual assault and also will provide information about other victim services.  Students can seek the assistance of counseling through their divisional counseling offices and members of the faculty and staff can seek assistance through the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FASAP). A student who is a victim of sexual assault may request a transfer to alternative classes or housing if necessary to allay concerns about security. The University will try to accommodate the request if such classes and housing are reasonably available.

Persons who are the victims of sexual assault also may pursue internal University disciplinary action against the perpetrator.  The University's disciplinary process may be initiated by bringing a complaint of sexual assault to the attention of a dean, department chairman or director, supervisor, divisional human resources office, or security office.  The University's Associate Director for Compliance & Conflict Resolution also is available to render assistance to any complainant. Allegations of sexual assault will be investigated by the appropriate security offices and any other offices whose assistance may be valuable for gathering evidence. The University reserves the right to independently discipline any member of the student body, staff or faculty who has committed a sexual or other assault whether or not the victim is a member of the University community and whether or not criminal charges are pending.  Disciplinary actions against students accused of sexual assaults will be processed by the appropriate student affairs office of the School or campus attended by the accused student in accordance with established disciplinary procedures pertaining to the School in which the student is enrolled.  Disciplinary actions against staff members will be governed by the procedures set out in the University's personnel policies.  Disciplinary actions against members of the faculty will be processed by the offices of the dean of the appropriate academic division according to the procedures established by that division.

Both a complainant and the person accused of a sexual assault will be afforded the same opportunity to have others present during a University disciplinary proceeding.  Attorneys, however, will not be permitted to personally participate in University disciplinary proceedings.  Both the complainant and the accused will be informed of the resolution of any University disciplinary proceeding arising from a charge that a sexual assault has been committed.

The disciplinary measures which may be imposed for sexual assault will vary according to the severity of the conduct and may include expulsion of a student from the University and termination of the employment of a member of the staff or faculty.  q

 

Note:  Persons 13 years and over who have been sexually assaulted are taken to Mercy Hospital.  Children under the age of 13 are taken to the University of Maryland Pediatric Urgent Care Unit.

 

Policy on Alcohol and Drug Abuse and a
Drug-Free Environment

 

The Johns Hopkins University recognizes that alcoholism and other drug addiction are illnesses that are not easily resolved by personal effort and may require professional assistance and treatment.  Faculty, staff and students with alcohol or other drug problems are encouraged to take advantage of the diagnostic, referral, counseling and preventive services available through the University.  Procedures have been developed to assure confidentiality of participation, program files and medical records generated in the course of these services.

Substance or alcohol abuse does not excuse faculty, staff or students from neglect of their employment or academic responsibilities.  Individuals whose work or academic performance is impaired as the result of the use or abuse of alcohol or other drugs may be required to participate in an appropriate diagnostic evaluation and treatment plan.  Further, use of alcohol or other drugs in situations off campus or removed from University activities that in any way impairs work performance is treated as misconduct on campus. Students are prohibited from engaging in the unlawful possession, use or distribution of alcohol or other drugs on University property or as a part of University activities.

It is the policy of The Johns Hopkins University that the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession or use of controlled substances is prohibited on the University's property or as a part of University activities.  Individuals who possess, use, manufacture or illegally distribute drugs or controlled dangerous substances are subject to University disciplinary action, as well as possible referral for criminal prosecution.  Such disciplinary action of faculty and staff may, in accordance with the University policy on alcohol abuse and maintenance of a drug-free workplace, range from a minimum of a three day suspension without pay to termination of University employment.  Disciplinary action against students may include expulsion from school.

As a condition of employment, each faculty and staff member and student employee must agree to abide by the University Drug-Free Workplace Policy and to notify the divisional human resources director of any criminal conviction related to drug activity in the workplace (which includes any location where one is in the performance of duties) within five (5) days after such conviction.  If the individual is supported by a federal grant or contract, the University will notify the supporting government agency within ten (10) days after receiving notice.

Missing Student Notification Policy

 

      As a requirement of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (amended) and in an effort to assist in ensuring the safety of our residential students, Johns Hopkins University(Homewood Campus) has established a missing student notification policy that requires the University to alert an emergency contact designated by the student and/or the student’s parents as well as local law enforcement if the student has been missing for more than 24 hours. 

      All students are asked to provide the name and phone number of an emergency contact person with the information that is collected by the Registrar’s Office.  This information is accessible to authorized campus officials who have the responsibility of notification and law enforcement officers in furtherance of a missing person investigation.  The following procedures apply to all notifications:

 

·    If an individual becomes aware that a residential student has been missing for more than 24 hours they should immediately report the situation to Campus Security at 410-516-7777.  A campus police officer is available to respond to a call 24/7 and will initiate contact with the Dean of Student Life, the Executive Director of Campus Safety and Security and make the other necessary contacts to initiate action by campus security and other law enforcement officials.

 

·    Campus Police Officers will gather the details of the situation and inform the Dean of Student Life so that the designated emergency contact can be notified as soon as possible.

 

·    In the case that the missing student is under the age of 18 and not emancipated, their parent(s) or guardian(s) will be notified as well.

 

·    Local law enforcement will be notified in all cases even if the student has not provided an emergency contact and the University will provide the necessary information to assist in locating the missing student.

 

·    Individuals who are concerned about someone who has not been missing for 24 hours but has failed to return to his/her residence are also encouraged to contact Campus Security.

 

·    If the circumstances related to a student’s disappearance appear to be related to foul play, i.e., kidnapping or other criminal acts, then the appropriate notifications and actions should be initiated immediately, even if the student has been missing for less than 24 hours. 

 

Equal Opportunity/Nondiscrimination
Policy Statement

 

The Johns Hopkins University admits students of any race, color, gender, religion, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, or veteran status to all of the rights, privileges, programs, benefits, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the University.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, or veteran status in any program or activity, including the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other University-administered programs or in employment.  Accordingly, the University does not take into consideration personal factors that are irrelevant to the program involved.

 Questions regarding access to programs following  Title VI, Title IX and Section 504 should be referred to the Assistant Provost and Director of the Office of Institutional Equity, who is responsible for coordination of equal opportunity programs,130 Garland Hall, (410) 516- 8075.  

Policy on the Reserve Officer Training Corps.  Present Department of Defense policy governing participation in University-based ROTC programs discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation.  Such discrimination is inconsistent with the Johns Hopkins University nondiscrimination policy.  Because ROTC is a valuable component of the University that provides an opportunity for many students to afford a Hopkins education, to train for a career, and to become positive forces in the military, the university, after careful study, has continued its ROTC program but encourages a change in federal policy that brings it into conformity with the University’s policy.  q

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 geographic areas are defined as:

Campus

(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).

Noncampus Building Or Property

(1)   Any building or property owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by the institution; 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 is within the campus, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.  

Counselors

As a result of the negotiated rulemaking process which followed the signing into law, the 1998 amendments to 20 U.S.C. Section 1092 (f), clarification was given to those considered to be campus security authorities.  Campus “Pastoral Counselors” and Campus “Professional Counselors”, when acting as such, are not considered to be a campus security authority and are not required to report crimes for inclusion into the annual disclosure of crime statistics.  As a matter of policy, they are encouraged; if and when they deem it appropriate, to inform persons being counseled of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary basis for inclusion into the annual crime statistics. 

The rulemaking committee defines counselors as: 

 

Pastoral Counselor

      An employee of an institution, who is associated with a religious order or denomination, recognized by that religious order or denomination as someone who provides confidential counseling and who is functioning within the scope of that recognition as a pastoral counselor.

Professional Counselor

      An employee of an institution whose official responsibilities include providing psychological counseling to members of the institution’s community and who is functioning within the scope of his or her license or certification.  q
