JEANNE CLERY DISCLOSURE OF CAMPUS SECURITY POLICY AND CAMPUS CRIME STATISTICS ACT

Under the federal law entitled "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act," statistics regarding major crimes "reported" to campus security authorities must be published for the past three calendar years. A crime is "reported" when it is brought to the attention of a campus security authority or the local police. It is not necessary for the crime to have been investigated by the police or campus security, nor must a finding of guilt or responsibility be made. Information in this report was obtained from the files of the Office of Safety and Security, the Office of Student Affairs and the law enforcement agencies that surround our main campus & alternate sites. The reported crimes and relevant statistics follow:

Crime Warnings-Timely Notification

When circumstances warrant, Crime Alert Notices are distributed to warn the College community of a crime or incident that poses a possible ongoing or continuous threat to campus safety. When the nature of the crime warrants public notification, crime bulletins are distributed via the campus e-mail system. In addition, notices may disseminated via the campus-wide phone system or placed on the College's web site.

Warnings may also be utilized to notify the College community regarding campus or off-campus crime trends or incidents in order to encourage the use of safety precautions.

Crime warnings are released as soon as reasonably possible once sufficient information is obtained.

Marist Security works in partnership with Student Affairs, the Public Affairs Office and the local Police Departments to provide timely notification of incidents impacting campus safety.

To report a crime or other incident on-campus, call the Office of Safety and Security at x2282 or from off-campus at 845-471-1822

Emergency #: x5555 or 845-575-5555

Campus Crime and Fire Logs

The Campus Crime and Fire Logs are available at the Office of Safety and Security, Donnelly Hall, Marist College, 3399 North Road, Poughkeepsie, New York. The crime and fire logs for the most recent 60-day period is open to public inspection, upon request, during normal business hours, which are 8:30am to 4:30pm. Any portion of the log that is older than 60 days will be made available within two business days of a request for public inspection.

Sex Offender Information

Information on registered sex offenders may be obtained from the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department or the New York State Sex Offender Registry website.

Annual Fire Safety Inspection:

The College is inspected annually by Inspectors from the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control. Upon completion of the inspection each Residence Facility is issued a Certificate of Compliance from the NYS OFP & C.

Residence Facility Fire Alarm and Sprinkler Systems:

Fire Alarm System:

Every campus residence facility is equipped with a fire alarm system as required by NYS Fire codes. All systems are compliant with NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) standards. Each building system is inspected by the Town of Poughkeepsie Building Department prior to the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.

The system is monitored by a NY State licensed alarm monitoring contractor as well as by the College's Office of Safety and Security.

Upon the receipt of an alarm by the monitoring station and the Security Office, the Fire Department is immediately dispatched and Security Officers also respond. The Fire Department and Security Department portable radios are compatible, which allows for direct on-scene communication between the two departments.

The entire campus Fire Alarm System is serviced and inspected annually by a NY State licensed contactor and a certified report submitted to the College.

Carbon Monoxide (CO):

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas or liquid that is deadly. It results from incomplete oxidation of carbon combustion.

The source of Carbon Monoxide can be from unvented kerosene and gas heaters; leaking chimneys and furnaces, worn or poorly maintained boilers and furnaces; gas stoves; generators and other gasoline powered equipment; automobile exhaust and tobacco smoke.

 Health effects associated with Carbon Monoxide can range from fatigue, headaches, nausea, shortness of breath, dizziness, and impaired vision and coordination. It can also cause flu-like symptoms that clear up after leaving a dwelling. At higher concentrations, Carbon Monoxide can be fatal.

All Residence Halls with a Carbon Monoxide (CO) source are equipped with Carbon Monoxide (CO) detectors.

Sprinkler System:

Sprinkler systems are installed in all residence facilities as required by the NYS building code when they are built and/or renovated. All residence facilities have Certificates of Occupancy from the Town of Poughkeepsie Building Department. Systems are "wet" systems and are installed to NFPA standards.

"Sprinkler system" shall mean a system of piping and appurtenances designed and installed in accordance with generally accepted standards so that heat from a fire will automatically cause water to be discharged over the fire area to extinguish it or prevent its further spread. (Sec 155 of the NYS Executive Law)

All Campus Sprinkler Systems are inspected quarterly by a private contractor as required by NYS Fire Code.

Fire Alarm and Sprinkler inspection reports are reviewed by the NYS Inspector during the annual state inspection.

Fire Drills:

New York State requires two (2) supervised Fire Drills to be conducted in every Residence Facility per semester. Campus Security Officers conduct the drills and monitor the evacuation of all residents.

Fire Safety Training:

In addition to Fire Drills, all resident students receive on an annual basis a brochure on Fire Safety information. Resident Directors and Resident Assistants receive an annual Fire Safety Training program provided by members of the Fairview Fire Department and the NY State Office of Fire Prevention and Control Fire Drills are also conducted in Academic/Administrative Buildings twice per semester. Fire Safety information is presented to faculty and staff members at employee orientation.

Resident Facility Fire Safety Policies:

The Following excerpts are taken from the Marist College Student Code of Conduct and Resident Student Handbook. This book is provided to, and signed for by all resident students when they pick up their room key.

Safety Regulations:

All buildings are equipped with fire alarm systems. For your safety, whenever the fire alarm sounds, evacuate the building immediately. Fire alarm pull stations are located near the exits. Treat all alarms as the real thing - assume nothing! Failure to evacuate an area may also result in disciplinary action.

Emergency Actions

If a fire emergency occurs, your actions can make the difference between a minor event and a disaster.

  • Notify other occupants in the room or apartment to evacuate.
  • Close the door to the affected area.
  • Activate the nearest fire alarm system.
  • Leave the building. Do NOT use the elevator. CRAWL low in smoke. Close all doors behind you.
  • Security will evacuate the building.
  • If a person's clothing should catch fire, douse the individual with water (use a Safety Shower if one is readily available) or have the individual drop to the floor and roll. If necessary, physically restrain the person and roll them around the floor to smother the flames. Use a fire extinguisher if one is readily available.

Evacuation Procedures

  • College buildings are to be evacuated immediately. Rapidly proceed to the nearest exit in an orderly manner and close all doors behind you. Building Evacuation routes are posted on each floor of each building. Never Use Elevators
  • Reconvene outside and away from the building to insure everyone has left the building
  • If you know of someone who is having trouble leaving the building, REPORT it immediately to someone who is handling the emergency.
  • NEVER re-enter the building until a representative from the Office of Safety and Security or the Fire Department has given permission.

General Fire Safety Policies

  • Make a reasonable effort to extinguish small fires by using fire extinguishers or turning off electrically driven equipment.
  • No storage of personal items or placement of furniture or boxes in exits, corridors or stairwells.
  • Do not overload electrical outlets or use extension cords.
  • Do not leave appliances unattended in kitchens.
  • Good housekeeping is essential for a fire safe residence.
  • If your clothes catch fire, stop-drop-roll.
  • Doors in stairwells must never be propped open. Open doors will allow the spread of smoke and fire to the exits, rendering them useless.
  • Identify and walk through your emergency escape routes so that you will be familiar with them in the event of a fire.
  • Know where the building meeting location is in the event of an emergency evacuation.

Smoking:

  • Smoking is not permitted in any of the residence areas or academic/administrative buildings. This includes individual rooms, apartments, suites, common areas, bathrooms, etc.

Appliances, Open Flames Barbeque Grills, etc:

  • Both the possession and use of halogen lamps, hot pots, hot plates, broiler ovens, fry pans, popcorn makers, space/portable heaters, coffee urns, immersion heaters, toasters (except in townhouse and apartment kitchens), air conditioners and similar portable equipment are forbidden in all residence areas. Violations of this policy will result in judicial action and confiscation of the appliance.
  • Students are permitted one refrigerator (no larger than 3.6 cubic feet and UL rated) in each room. Students in residence halls are permitted one microwave (no larger that 700 watts and UL rated) per room.
  • All electrical equipment, when being used, may only plug directly into a wall outlet or a UL-rated power surge protector which is plugged into a wall outlet. Possession of extension cords is not allowed.
  • Open flames - (candles, blow torches, lanterns, etc.) is not permitted anywhere in the residence areas. Use of incense is also prohibited. Candles are not permitted even for decoration purposes.
  • Students are permitted to use portable barbecue grills on college grounds only if proper safety precautions are observed. No barbecue grill is allowed to be used or stored within 15 feet of any structure or overhang.
  • Students are not to tamper with smoke and heat detector devices in residence areas, illuminated exit signs, water stand pipe hydrants, fire alarms, pull station covers and fire extinguishers. Failure to adhere to these policies will likely result in Residence Hall Dismissal.

MISSING STUDENT NOTIFICATION

Marist College has in place, a procedure for Missing Student Notification. This procedure includes the investigation into the whereabouts of the missing student and the notification of designated individuals as outlined and proscribed by the H.E.O.A. (Higher Education Opportunity Act)

  1. As required by law, each student has the right to list a Confidential Contact Person whom they entrust with information relative to their whereabouts should they be reported missing. A Confidential Contact Person is a person whom the student has chosen to be a point of contact to release information to Security, College Administrators and/or Law Enforcement Officials. If you wish to list a Confidential Contact Person, click the link below and follow the prompts. You may change your Confidential Contact Person at any time.

    ยป Add/Update Confidential Contact

  2. Upon learning of a missing student - any student, faculty, administrator or staff member must immediately notify the Office of Safety and Security at X # 2282 or 845-471-1822.

  3. If, after a preliminary investigation by Marist Safety and Security, the missing person has not been located and his/her personal safety verified, the Office of Safety and Security will notify the appropriate law enforcement agency within two (2) hours or less of receiving said report. Written Memorandums of Understanding (M.O.U's.) with local police agencies regarding the investigation of missing student cases are on file in the Office of Safety and Security.

  4. The Office of Safety and Security will notify the parent or legal guardian of any missing student less than eighteen (18) year of age who is not legally emancipated.

  5. The specific procedures for investigating a missing student report are detailed in the Security Department's Orders and Memo's book located in Donnelly Hall, room#201.
