The Annual Security Report is prepared in cooperation with the local law enforcement agency serving our York location and our Student Services Director.
Each entity provides updated information on their efforts and programs to comply with the Act. Campus crime, arrests and referral statistics include those reported to our designated campus officials and local law enforcement agencies in the jurisdiction of York City.
Each year, a notice is sent by a printed announcement to all enrolled students and current employees and staff regarding the publication of this report. A printed copy is available for review and reproduction from the Financial Aid office. A notice of its availability is also placed on our student announcement bulletin board and will be available on the CSB website.
We are pleased to report that no crimes, arrests or violations of the law have occurred or have been reported on the York campus or in the area surrounding the facility. We look forward to another year in a crime-free environment. For additional information on Consolidated School of Business or our current policies and procedures, please consult a current catalog. If you have any questions regarding the contents of the attached report, do not hesitate to call for clarification or comment.
Consolidated School of Business – 2017 Annual Security Report
Consolidated School of Business (CSB) has a proud history of providing a safe learning environment for it students. Numerous federal and state laws have been adopted dealing with student and employee safety. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act requires that specific policies, procedures, and information be provided to ensure the health and safety of persons concerned with campus life.
Current Policy Regarding Campus Security
Though Consolidated School of Business does not employ a campus police force or a private security company, administrative personnel are available during our normal business hours to assist you should the need arise. Consolidated School of Business operates no off-campus housing facilities or off campus student organizations; therefore it has no security associated with these types of facilities or organizations.
Reporting Criminal Incidents and Other Emergencies
All students, employees, and guests should promptly report criminal incidents, accidents and other emergencies by Dialing 911 Then, alert a senior administrator of the concern. Consolidated School of Business does not have a campus police force or security department. However, any suspected criminal activity should be reported to the School Director (SD) to ensure inclusion in the annual crime statistics and to aid in providing timely warning notices to our school’s community, when appropriate.
Campus Security Officials
The following individuals are designated as Campus Security Officials (CSO):
- School Director – Debra Martinez
- Vice-President of Administration – William H. Hoyt
In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of any Campus Security Official constitutes a dangerous situation or a continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” notice will be issued via in-school/in classroom announcements.
Depending on the particular circumstances of the incident or crime, especially in all situations that could pose an immediate threat to the CSB community, the school may also post an electronic notice on the CSB web site at: https://www.csb.edu and also may notify the local media providing the campus community with more immediate notification. In such instances, a copy of the notice is distributed to each classroom and office as well as posted on the student information board.
The CSB administrative phone chain will be activated to alert all instructors and staff individually. Each instructor is asked to notify their respective class roster with the specific timely warning information.
Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to any Campus Security Official as soon as they are able.
Confidential Reporting Procedures
If you are the victim of a crime in the building or on the property and do not want to pursue action within the CSB community or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report. A CSO can file a report on the details of the incident without revealing your identity. The purpose of a confidential report is to comply with your wish to keep the matter confidential, while taking steps to ensure the future safety of yourself and others. With such information, Consolidated School of Business can keep an accurate record of the number of incidents involving students, determine if there is a pattern of crime with regard to a particular location, method, or assailant, and alert the campus community to potential danger. Reports filed in this manner are counted and disclosed in the annual crimes statistics for the institution.
CSB students are permitted to have access to school facilities and programs during our normal business hours. These times are generally Monday through Thursday 7: 30 am to 4:00 pm, Friday 7:30 am to 3:00 pm.
Employees are permitted to have access during their scheduled work hours and with permission if the need arises during high traffic season. During non-business hours, access to the facility is by Campus Security Official approval.
All visitors must report to the front desk or with an administrator on location. Security Awareness and Crime Prevention Programs. While Consolidated School of Business is virtually crime free, it remains in the best interest of all to abide by common sense security precautions. In any community there will be a small percentage that will engage in book or purse theft (petty theft) or the theft of materials left in unsecured vehicles. As in any public place, one should always keep an eye on personal belongings.
In that same regard, we encourage you to be aware of your surroundings and avoid taking unnecessary risks by following these basic personal protection measures:
- Walk in well-lighted areas. Don’t walk alone in the parking lot after dark.
- Use the buddy system.
- Be aware of your surroundings and walk with confidence.
- Lock your doors and keep valuables out of sight. This includes classrooms,
labs, offices and vehicles. Know where your keys are at all times.
- Report all thefts, regardless of value.
- Report suspicious persons or activities to Campus Security Officials and/or
your local law enforcement officials.
- Be aware of the closest outside exit in the event of an emergency evacuation.
A number of educational and awareness raising materials and events are provided throughout the academic year. These typically involve staff in-service seminars, community awareness activities, and orientation sessions. Please note bulletin boards and campus announcements of such events. Because our school is virtually a crime free environment, it is unnecessary to provide extensive programming regarding crime prevention to students and employees.
Lost and Found
The School does provide for a Lost and Found in the front office. If something of value is lost on school property, i.e. textbooks or other personal property, it should be reported to a CSO. If you find something of value on the property, please bring the item(s) to the front office for safe keeping.
Consolidated School of Business is not responsible for lost or stolen property. Parking in the adjacent parking lot is offered as a convenience but parking is at your own risk. CSB is not responsible for any damages or loss that occurs in the adjacent parking lots.
