7.11 Crime Awareness and Campus Security

Central Piedmont Community College seeks to promote a teaching and learning environment that is safe for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors while on College premises. Contributing to the safety of the teaching and learning environment are rules for safety within facilities including, but not limited to, the prohibition of riding skateboards, segways, longboards, or similar recreational devices within the interior of College facilities and within all College parking decks and surface parking lots; and the use of these devices on the exterior of College facilities in a manner that a College official deems reckless due to the potential to negatively impact individual safety and/or damage College facilities. Any violations of this policy will be handled through the student disciplinary process.

In addition, the College has controlled access to facilities and distribution of keys, the presence of both sworn law enforcement officers and security guards, and a heightened awareness of criminal activity through regular reporting and educational programs. Within these measures, the College complies with all the crime awareness education and reporting requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.
