Campus Emergency Notification Montgomery County Job Center conducts both announced and unannounced tests of the emergency notification and evacuation procedures. Alarm systems are all tested to ensure the systems are working properly. Additionally, the campus conducts periodic tests of the entire emergency response/evacuation process; these tests may be announced or unannounced. Documentation of these tests is maintained in the School Director s Office. 5. Evacuation Procedures Montgomery County Job Center security personnel will respond to any actual or perceived emergency. They will respond with whatever the necessary course of action mandates. In the event that an evacuation is necessary, the campus population will be notified through fire alarm system, , text messaging, and social media depending on what the emergency or evacuation situation mandates. Emergency response and evacuation procedures are conducted through student and faculty orientations. Evacuation routes are in every classroom and office area. 6. Security Awareness Programs Safety and security awareness programs are in place for students and employees at OMCC. School safety policy is presented to new students and employees at orientation as well as published in the student/employee handbooks. Visual emergency exiting layouts are posted in classroom, labs, and in the hallway. In the imminent danger or immediate emergency, information is released through verbal announcements in classroom and postings in common areas. 7. Reporting a Crime or Emergency OMCC encourages the prompt reporting of all crimes and suspicious persons or activities to the Job Center security staff and the local law enforcement agency when the victim of a crime elects to make
3 such a report. If the victim is physically or mentally unable to make such a report, Job Center security personnel will contact the local law enforcement agency on their behalf. If anyone on campus, in or on a non-campus building or property, or on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus is a victim of a crime, a witness to a crime, has third party information, or observes suspicious activity, they should immediately report it to the Job Center Security Office by calling or by coming into the office. For non-campus options crimes may be reported to the Montgomery County Sheriff s Office by calling or by calling Daily Crime Log Ohio Medical Career College maintains a Daily Crime Log (DCL) on campus. Information is recorded on the log within two days of the crime being reported to OMCC school officials regardless of how much time has passed since the crime was committed. Information that is prohibited by law or would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim will not be included in the crime log. The School Director is responsible for maintaining the Daily Crime Log. The DCL includes the nature of the crime, and date reported, date and time occurred, general location of the crime and disposition of the complaint, if known. The DCL for the most recent sixty day period is kept in the School Director s office and will be retained for a period of seven years. The DCL is available for inspection upon request during school operational hours. Requests for information from DCLs that are older than sixty days will be made available within two business days of the request for public inspection. 9. Alcohol & Drugs Free School Policy Ohio Medical Career College is a drug and alcohol free institution. In compliance with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989, OMCC prohibits the unlawful possession, use, sale, manufacture, or distribution of drugs and alcohol by students and employees on the property of OMCC, any clinical site, or during any school activities. These activities are illegal and adversely affect a student s ability to perform his/her duties, and can pose a danger not only to him/her, but to all students of the school. OMCC will impose sanctions on students and employees that are consistent with federal, state, and local laws. Violation of either the drug or alcohol policy will result in immediate school disciplinary action up to and including expulsion. Furthermore, violators will be subject to criminal prosecution, fines, and imprisonment. Use of alcohol or drugs presents numerous health, behavioral, and social problems. These include acute health problems related to intoxication or overdose, physical and psychological dependence, long-term health problems, contracting diseases, pregnancy problems, psychological problems, diminished behavior, risk taking, violent behavior, accidents, negative side effects on academic or work performance, and conduct problems: OMCC provides community referrals for personal counseling and help for students and employees with drug and alcohol-related problems through the Officer of Student Affairs. Referrals will be kept confidential.
4 10. Violence Against Women Act Compliance / Sexual Misconduct Prevention Policy Ohio Medical Career College does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs. Sexual harassment and sexual violence are considered to be types of sex discrimination. Other acts can also be forms of sex-based discrimination, and are also prohibited whether sexually based or not. These other acts include dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. OMCC prohibits the offenses of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking and reaffirms its commitment to maintain a campus environment emphasizing the dignity and worth of all members of the College community. Effective November 1, 2014, OMCC engages in comprehensive educational programming to prevent domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking. OMCC has published information and materials concerning these topics to be distributed to new students and employees orientations and upon individual request throughout the year. Evidence Preservation After an incident of sexual assault and domestic violence, the victim should consider seeking medical attention as soon as possible. It is important that a victim of sexual assault not bathe, douche, smoke, change clothing where they were assaulted if the offense occurred within the past 96 hours so that evidence necessary to prove criminal activity may be preserved. In circumstances of sexual assault, if victims do not opt for forensic evidence collection, health care providers can still treat injuries and take steps to address concerns of pregnancy and/or sexually transmitted disease. Victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, stalking, and dating violence are encouraged to also preserve evidence by saving text messages, instant messages, social networking pages, other communications, and keeping pictures, logs or other copies of documents, if they have any, that would be useful to investigators or police. Although OMCC strongly encourages all members of its community to report violations of this policy to law enforcement, it is the victims choice whether or not to make such a report and victims have the right to decline involvement with the police. When a complainant does not consent to the disclosure of their name or other identifiable information to the alleged perpetrator, the College s ability to respond to the complaint may be limited. Reporting Options & Procedures If you are an OMCC student or employee and have been the victim of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault or stalking, you should report the incident promptly to the Job Center Security Office at and alert the Title IX Coordinator, Dr. Nick Xu (located in the School Director s Office, , Charges to sexual assault, domestic or dating violence, and stalking will be investigated by Job Center Security Office and Dayton Police. Job Center Security Office can take a report, refer to medical care, assess short and long term safety needs, assist with contacting local police, referrals for mental health providers, and assist with Personal Protection Orders. The College will protect the identity of persons who report having been victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking to the fullest extent of the law. Personal identifiable information about the victim will be treated as confidential and only shared with persons with a specific
5 need to know who are investigating/adjudicating the complaint or delivering resources or support services to the complainant. Adjudication & Disciplinary Actions OMCC will defer investigation to the Job Center Security Office and the police department. In all cases, investigations that result in a finding will lead to the initiation of disciplinary procedures against the accused individual. College sanctions including suspension, expulsion, termination of employment, may be imposed upon those determined to have violated this policy. For students, sexual assaults, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking are violations of the Student Code of Conduct. Employees who violate this policy will be subject to discipline, up to and including termination of employment. These criminal acts will also subject the perpetrator to criminal and civil penalties under federal, state and local laws. The Title IX Coordinator will determine if interim interventions should be implemented, and, if so, take steps to implement those protective measures, as soon as possible. Examples of interim protective measures include, but are not limited to: an order of no contact, a leave of absence, or reassignment to a different supervisor or position. These remedies may be applied to one, both, or multiple parties involved. Violations of the Title IX Coordinator s directives and or protective measures will constitute related violations that may lead to additional disciplinary actions. Protective measures imposed may be temporary pending the results of an investigation or may become permanent as determined by OMCC. Sex 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. Under the law, state and local law enforcement agencies must provide Colleges and Universities in their jurisdiction with a list of registered sex offenders who have indicated that they are either enrolled, employed, or carrying on a vocation at the institution. A list of all registered sex offenders is available on the National Sex Offender Registry website at On this website, you can search for offenders attending OMCC by selecting the search within 1 mile radius option and entering the campus address. You can also obtain a list from your State or Local Police Departments. 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.
