Crime Report: Training Center

Section II: Campus Crime Statistics 

Campus Security Authorities 

At Florida National University, we are committed to campus safety and security. For this reason, each campus has appointed Campus Security Authorities. Campus Security Authorities are authorized to act on behalf of the institution in order to maintain a safe and secure learning environment for the faculty, students and staff of their respective campuses. 

It is the responsibility of the Campus Security Authorities to report all allegations of Clery Act crimes to the appropriate law enforcement officials and to issue “timely warnings” in the event of a continued threat.

 Reporting of a Crime 

The following are to be used at Florida National University in the reporting and notifying of the commission of a crime or the attempt of the same on the University Campuses. 

1.         Since Florida National University does not have security personnel, any person witnessing the commission of a crime, or the attempt to do so, is obligated to report the same to the responsible authorities. 

2.         The Campus Dean is the first authority to be notified of the commission or attempted commission of a crime on or near the University campus. The Dean, then, has the obligation to notify the proper authorities while at the same time notifying the Office of the President. 

3.         Students witnessing crime commission or other campus disasters should notify, in case of inability to notify the campus dean, the nearest faculty member. This faculty member, in turn, is expected to take upon himself the responsibility of notifying the Deans office. 

4.         In the case of the incapacity of the Deans Office to react, the metro police and the local police are to be notified immediately by anyone witnessing the commission or attempted commission of a crime. 

5.         The handling of criminal acts is a matter for the professional law enforcement officer, and amateurs should not full heartily get involved with a crime; but, at the same time, all are expected to use common sense and aid the victim of a crime if possible. 

Timely Warning Policy 

In compliance with the “Timely Warning” provision of the Clery Act, Florida National University issues campus wide alerts regarding any Clery Act crime that may constitute a continued threat to the campus community. Timely warnings may be issued for threats to persons or property.

The issuing of a timely warning is made on a case by case basis, taking into consideration the nature of the crime, the continuing danger, and the risk of compromising any ongoing investigation. Upon notification that a Clery Act Crime has been committed, the Dean or Assistant Dean shall issue the Timely Warning. 

The methods employed to notify the campus may include but are not limited to: 

•     Announcement over the interoffice intercom

•     Room by Room Announcement

•     A “Timely Warning” flyer posted at the campus entrance. 

Crime Prevention 

Faculty, students and staff are all expected to use the common sense tools available to them to thwart and avoid the commission of criminal activity, by following these: 

Rules of Prevention 

1.         Being certain that automobiles are tightly closed and locked. Never for an instant leave the keys in a car or the car without security precautions. 

2.         Never leaving visible packages or such in a car, even though it is locked. 

3.         Purses, coats or personal property should never be left out of the owner’s reach. 

4.         Never leaving books and class lab materials in unattended classrooms. 

5.         Never allowing prescription medicines leave the possession of the owner. 

6.         Reporting drug taking, or possession or sale of drugs on campus to the Campus Dean’s office, remembering at all times that persons who take, possess or sell drugs are a menace to themselves and every one in the community. 

7.         Reporting to the Dean’s Office possession, use, buying or selling of alcoholic beverages. 

8.         Reporting unsecured equipment or classrooms to the maintenance personnel or Dean’s Office. 

9.         Turning in lost and found articles to the receptionist immediately. 

10.        Never inspect your wallet and/or count your money in public. 

Security and Access to University Facilities 

The security of the University ultimately lies in the hands of the President, who has delegated this authority to the VP/Assistant CEO, the University Vice President, the Campus Deans, VP of Operations, and the maintenance personnel. The Campus Deans will work closely with the Student Services Department who in turn directs a program of awareness with the students.

All campuses are secured with master alarm systems which are activated by one of the above mentioned, according to day/night duty schedule. 

At each orientation, every eight weeks, all students and university personnel are reminded of security, its necessity and their obligation to look out for each other and the security of the institution. 

All members of the University community must wear the University ID at all times. 

While each incidence of campus criminal activity is reported to the President’s Office, each

Dean keeps a record of the criminal activity on his campus. 

Policy Statements Concerning Drug and Alcohol Use on Campus 

FNU reserves the right to terminate, suspend and/or put on probation any student or employee who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs while on the University premises. 

The University has a Drug Abuse program which makes use of experts in the field, featuring counseling, seminars, instruction, preventive recommendations, speakers, movies and the appropriate literature. 

The FNU Drug Abuse Program follows the guidelines for such programs as required under section 1213 of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and as amended by the Drug Free Schools and Communities Amendments of 1989. 

FNU supports and abides by the drinking laws of the State of Florida, especially with respect to underage drinking. The University supports Federal and State Laws on the sale, possession and use of illegal drugs.  

Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Policy

Florida National University educates the student community about sexual assault and date rape through the Office of Student Services. The Office of Student Services provides literature on date rape education, risk reduction, and university response annual sexual assault education as well as annual information programs to University students and employees.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, first seek safety and then immediate medical attention. Florida National University strongly encourages any victim of sexual assault to report the incident in a timely manner. Time is a critical factor in the collecting and preserving of evidence. (Ideally a victim of sexual assault should not wash, douche, use the restroom, or change clothes prior to a medical examination.) An assault should be reported to the local police department by dialing 911 or reporting the incident to the Campus Dean who can assist you with the reporting of a sexual assault.

All alleged sex offenses are subject to FNU disciplinary action. Both the victim and the accused are entitled to choose one person who has no formal legal training to accompany them throughout the hearing. Both the victim and the accused will be informed of the outcome of the hearing. A student found guilty of violating the sexual misconduct policy could be criminally prosecuted and expelled from FNU. Student victims have the options to change their academic situation after an alleged sexual assault, if such accommodations are reasonably available.

Florida National University also strongly advises victims of sexual assault to seek counseling. Local organizations that specialize in crises counseling include:

RAINN‐Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network  (800) 656‐4673

Victims of Crimes Services  (305) 230-6141

Opa Locka Domestic Police Department-Violence Intervention Unit (305) 953-2838

Baptist Health-Women’s Health Center  (786) 596-5981

Sex Offender Registry

In compliance with the “Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act” of 2000, Florida National University maintains an electronic link to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Sex Offender Registry. According to this act, all institutions of higher learning must issue a statement informing the campus community where it can access the state sex offender registry. This act also requires State registered sex offender to report any institution of higher learning in which he/she is employed, carries a vocation, or is a student.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is responsible for maintaining the Florida Sexual Offenders and Predators website. Follow the link below for access.
