Annual Campus Security Report


Introduction

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (“Clery Act”) requires educational institutions to provide all current and prospective students and employees with the security policies and regulations of the College, and the statistics of crime occurrences. These security regulations are designed to ensure the safety of all individuals at Alaska Career College, and as such, all members of the campus community and visitors are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that respects the rights of all within the community.
 
Observance of Alaska Career College policies, as well as federal, state, and local laws, is required in order to fulfill the purposes of the educational institution. Although the College strives to ensure a safe environment, each person must take ultimate responsibility for his/her own safety and that of his/her personal belongings.
 
This report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on-campus; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus and off campus parking areas.
 
Every year, Alaska Career College distributes a copy of this report to students, faculty and staff via email, hard copy or via the ACC website www.AlaskaCareerCollege.edu. Prospective employees and prospective students are notified that this report exits and of the reports content. Individuals may receive information regarding this report by contacting the Alaska Career College business office at 907-563-7575 ext. 136.
 
The purpose of Alaska Career College College’s Emergency Management Plan is to safeguard the welfare of its students, faculty, staff, and visitors, and take steps to 1) prevent and mitigate; 2) prepare for; 3) respond to; and 4) recover from emergencies in order to protect the College's essential functions during and after an emergency.
 
In the event of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees occurring on campus or other Alaska Career College facilities, the College will, without delay, take into account the safety of the community:
 
  • Confirm the existence of a significant emergency or dangerous situation
  • Determine the appropriate individual(s) to receive an emergency notification
  • Determine the content of the notification and initiate the notification system, unless the notification will, in the professional judgment of the Emergency Management Team or a member thereof, compromise efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.

After the initial notification, the College will provide adequate follow-up information to students, faculty and staff as determined appropriate by the College’s Emergency Management Team.
 
The Emergency Management Plan addresses the following categories of emergencies: medical, weather, earth quake, explosion, evacuation, fire, power outage, workplace violence, suspicious persons and packages, etc. This policy and the Emergency Management Plan apply at all College locations, including College owned property and College leased space.
 
It is College policy that each, dean, director, manager, and supervisor is responsible for the health and safety performance in their respective areas and that all employees will follow the College’s emergency notification procedures.
