Policies and Procedures
School employees are informed about security related issues via the employee handbooks, and staff meeting in which there is emphasis on security and the need to take precautions to ensure personal safety, the safety of others, and to prevent loss. How and when to contact management is also emphasized.
Policy for Reporting Criminal Actions or Other Emergency
Each employee of IOHS is expected to promptly report any criminal actions or other emergencies to the appropriate authorities. The campus safety office is Richard Trader who will take immediate action. Appropriate authorities will act immediately on any report of criminal action or other emergencies; will investigate, categorize, and report on each instance; and will involve outside police agencies as appropriate.
Security and Access to Campus Facilities
IOHS is a private institution. During scheduled hours, its facilities are available for employees, and visitors.
Campus are kept secured. Safety/Security deficiencies are immediately acted upon by school personnel 24 hours per day.
Employees are responsible for keeping the office locked when unoccupied or occupied and for keeping personal valuables and school equipment and furnishings secure at all times. School personnel should not allow anyone in the building that does not have an appointment.
They are also expected to keep all exterior doors and windows to secured during all non-open access hours and to report anything out of the ordinary to the office manager.
Management personnel perform routine security checks of school facilities. They also investigate and act as a catalyst to rectify security deficiencies.
Possession, Use, and Sale of Alcoholic Beverages and Illegal Drugs
IOHS has subscribed to a policy of abstinence regarding the use of alcohol and illicit drugs. The possession, use, and/or sale of alcoholic beverages and /or illegal drugs is strictly forbidden at IOHS for all employees. Violation of this policy could subject the individual to immediate dismissal from school or employment, as applicable.
Employees of IOHS will neither participate in nor tolerate the possession, use or sale of illegal drugs or alcoholic beverages.
Alleged instances of possession, use, and/or sale of alcoholic beverages and/or illegal drugs should be reported to the office manager.
The Student Right to Know and Campus Security Act requires that all colleges compile information regarding certain crimes on campus. This act also requires this information to be provided to all employees, and, upon request, to all who have applied for admission.
IOHS does not report campus crime statistics to the federal registry annually – as a long-distance blended school we do have any students on campus. Interns are advised to review the individual hospital statistics.
For a complete report on crime at college campuses go to the national campus crime registry online at http://ope.ed.gov/security/.
