Title II of Public Law 101-542 Crime Awareness
and Campus Security
Florida Community College is dedicated
to the provision of a safe working and learning environment for
all employees and students. In order for these individuals to
promptly report criminal actions or other emergencies, FCCJ maintains
a 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-per week, security office at each
of its facilities. The College also has a special emergency telephone
number, ELK-HELP, manned 24 hours a day with direct radio contact
to all College security officers.
FCCJ security officers are unarmed and do not have police powers,
but they work closely with local law enforcement agencies on follow-up
actions or investigations related to criminal activities on campus.
In order to facilitate this relationship, all employees and students
are encouraged to promptly report all criminal or suspicious activity
to the nearest security office.
A special crime prevention unit associated with the security department
conducts crime prevention workshops at each FCCJ campus throughout
the year. These programs are open to employees and students alike
and are free of charge. In support of this crime prevention effort,
this same unit maintains points of distribution for appropriate
literature at each campus.
Since the College has no recognized fraternities or other off-campus
student organizations, there are no records maintained on liquor,
drugs or weapons violations by students associated with such organizations.
- consumption of alcohol on campus or at College
- use, manufacture or possession of illegal
drugs or narcotics on campus or at College functions, and
- carrying any type of weapon, concealed or
otherwise, on campus except as part of the law enforcement training
In addition, College policy prohibits smoking
in any of its buildings.
Sexual Assault Sexual
assault (rape) is a serious crime which has a major impact on
the campus community as well as on the students who are victimized.
FCCJ will not tolerate sexual assault in any form, including date
and acquaintance sexual assault. Should probable cause be determined
that campus regulations prohibiting sexual assault have been violated,
disciplinary action will be pursued through the code of student
conduct or other appropriate internal processes. Discipline may
result in suspension or dismissal from the College.
Any student or employee reporting a sexual assault will be treated
with respect and sensitivity. Contacts and conversations which
transpire pursuant to this procedure will be held in confidence.
Individuals who believe they have been sexually assaulted and
wish further information or assistance may contact the campus
staff member designated to assist with sexual assaults. Any person
wishing to file a complaint may contact a campus security office.
