Public Law 102-26, the Higher Education Technical Amendments of 1991 (the ACT), requires all institutions of higher education to provide information with respect to campus crime and security policies under Title II of the ACT.

A) Employees, students, and others are required to report criminal actions or other emergencies to the director or acting director immediately. The director will subsequently notify the appropriate public agency.

The director’s office is located within the Newport Business Institute school building.

In the event of a fire, any employee, student, or other person should immediately activate the local fire alarm to vacate all occupants from the school building. Local fire alarms are located in the front hallways. The director or his/her representative will then call the fire department.

B) Employees and students have access to the school building between 7:30 AM and 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday.

C) Newport Business Institute does not have an on-campus security force or campus police force. The director or his /her representatives have responsibility for maintaining security on campus. Either of these individuals can request assistance from the local police force if the situation warrants. The aforementioned staff personnel do not have arresting authority. However, they are authorized to detain individuals who may have committed an on-campus crime.

The Newport Business Institute administration encourages all parties to report anything suspicious to an employee of the Newport Business Institute. The employee contacted will then contact the director or his/her representative. The director will report all alleged crimes to the local police force.

The director requests that as much information as possible be disclosed to the appropriate enforcement agency in order to facilitate successful apprehension of the criminal(s). The information provided must be reported promptly and accurately.

D) Students and employees will be informed of campus security procedures and practices at the student orientation sessions held the first day of each term.
