                                         Dover Campus
                              Security Report – Calendar Year 2009

The Administrative Director has primary responsibility for safety and security on campus. The
office phone number is 973-366-6700, extension 5610. In the absence of the Administrative
Director, the campus Assistant Dean will provide oversight of campus safety concerns. The
Assistant Dean’s phone number is 973-366-6700 extension 5650.

Dover Business College does not employ a full-time campus security staff. The Administrative
Director works closely with the Dover Police Department, which may be reached by calling 911
or 973-366-0302.

If you become aware of a crime, observe a suspicious person, or are a victim yourself, the first
contact you make should be to promptly report all emergencies to the police. Additionally,
please report all incidents or suspicious activity to either the Administrative Director or the
Assistant Dean.

Reports to College personnel involving bodily injury (including sex offenses), theft, or an
ongoing threat to campus security will be reported to the Dover Police Department. Reports not
involving bodily injury, or theft will usually be investigated internally. Police reports are public
records under state law. If you are the victim of a crime and do not want to pursue action within
the public criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report
with the College. With your permission, the Administrative Director or his designee 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.

Timely Warnings

In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of the
Administrative Director, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely
warning” will be issued. The warning will be issued in one or a combination of the following
methods: electronic e-mail to Dover Business College email addresses, our website
(www.dover.edu), our Blackboard student portal
(https://my.dover.edu/webapps/portal/frameset.jsp), telephone, voice mail, media
announcements, and portable public address equipment. In the event of an emergency, Dover
Business College’s Information Line (1-800-GO-DOVER) will become an Information Hotline
Number that will provide information to the general public.

Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics

                              Security Report – Calendar Year 2009

Campus crime, arrest, and referral statistics include those reported to designated campus officials
and local law enforcement agencies. Each term, an e-mail notification is made to all enrolled
students that provides the web site to access this report. Faculty and staff receive similar
notification via College email.

Campus crime data are also available from the United States Department of Education website:
http://www.ope.ed.gov/security.

Campus Access & Maintenance

The Campus building is open to the public during regular operational hours (Monday through
Thursday 7 am to 10 pm; Friday 7 am to 5 pm, Saturday 9 am to 3 pm.). After that time all
buildings are locked. The campus is equipped with an emergency lighting system, emergency
generators, and burglar and fire alarms.

Maintenance personnel inspect the entire campus and buildings regularly to discover and correct
health, safety, or maintenance problems. Security-related maintenance problems (e.g. doors,
windows, locks) in need of repair should be reported to the receptionist or Administrative
Director.

Informational Programs Addressing Security Awareness

Student orientation programs are offered to all new students each quarter. These orientation
programs include a review of policies and rules related to conduct and behavior expected of
students. Orientation includes presentations and information on topics such as drug and alcohol
abuse, sexual assault and date-rape crimes, and on-campus as well as off-campus counseling
opportunities.

Employee orientation programs are offered to all new employees each month. At these
programs, Human Resource personnel inform employees about the Dover Associate Information
System (DAISY), which is an electronic information database for employees. The DAISY
database contains information on topics such as drug and alcohol abuse, employee conduct,
grievance procedures, ethics, and sexual harassment. All employees are also required to
complete an on-line virtual orientation program which links employees directly to the DAISY
resources.

Weapons

No one is permitted to carry a weapon on campus premises. Violators of this policy will be
subject to disciplinary action, up to and/or including suspension, dismissal, or termination of
employment, as well as referral to appropriate legal authorities.

Data Security

Dover Business College's computer systems and associated hardware and peripherals are to be
used for educational purposes only. The use of computers and the Internet are privileges which
may be limited or revoked at any time. Computer usage may be monitored so students and
employees should not have an expectation of privacy. Students, faculty, and staff have a
responsibility to use computers and the Internet ethically and lawfully, and Dover Business
College reserves the right to report any suspected illegal activity to the appropriate authorities.

Any attempts to circumvent PC/Network security, damage or tamper with any of Dover Business
College’s electronic resources, including software, hardware, network infrastructure, virus
propagating, and sustained high volume network traffic, may result in disciplinary action
including suspension, dismissal, or termination of employment. Internet access is provided in
various Dover Business College labs and offices. The College has installed systems that attempt
to block offensive material, and restrict access to sites that have been known to monopolize
network bandwidth, or violate copyright laws.

Alcoholic Beverages & Illegal Drugs

Dover Business College strictly prohibits the possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and
the possession, consumption, or distribution of alcohol on college property or at any college
related activity. The sale or possession of any controlled substance including marijuana is illegal
under both federal and state law, and such laws are strictly enforced by College authorities. A
list of federal, state, and local laws pertaining to Drug and Alcohol Abuse, as well as a list of
support programs, is available on Blackboard (log on to
https://my.dover.edu/webapps/portal/frameset.jsp click on Student
Life>Policies/Procedures>Drug & Alcohol Abuse Laws and Programs) and to employees on
DAISY.

Violators of the drug and alcohol abuse policy will be subject to disciplinary action which may
include, but is not limited to: suspension, dismissal, termination of employment and/or referral to
outside authorities.

Sexual Offenses

Sexual assault is a crime prohibited by state law. Sexual assault includes any forcible sexual act
directed against another person forcibly and/or against that person’s will; or not forcibly but the
victim is incapable of giving consent. Sexual assault also includes non-forcible sexual acts that
are unlawful as incest or statutory rape. Sexual assault will not be tolerated at Dover Business
College.

If you are a victim of a sexual assault at this institution, your first priority should be to get to a
place of safety. You should then obtain necessary medical treatment. The College strongly
advocates that a victim of sexual assault report the incident in a timely manner, either directly to
local police or to a College official, such as the Assistant Dean. Time is a critical factor for
evidence collection and preservation.

The victim of a sexual assault may choose for the investigation to be pursued through the
criminal justice system and/or College disciplinary proceedings. The Assistant Dean or other
designee from the College will guide the victim through the available options and support the
victim in his/her decision. College personnel will also assist the student in notifying local
authorities, if the student requests assistance in this regard. The College will change a student’s
academic arrangements after an alleged sex offense if those changes are requested by the victim
and are reasonably available. Counseling options are available to victims externally through
various agencies and organizations.

                              Security Report – Calendar Year 2009


Campus disciplinary actions in cases of an alleged sexual offense entitle both the accused and the
accuser to have others present during a disciplinary proceeding, and both the accused and the
accuser will be informed of the outcome of any institutional disciplinary proceeding that is
brought alleging a sex offense. Sanctions imposed by the institution following a disciplinary
proceeding may include but are not limited to: suspension, dismissal, and changes to campus
privileges.

In accordance with federal regulations, the College is informing you that registered sex offenders
are listed on the internet at http://www.njsp.org/info/reg_sexoffend.html.

Sexual Harassment

It is Dover Business College's policy to prohibit any act of sexual harassment on the part of
faculty, administrative staff, or students. Sexual harassment is also a violation of federal and
state law. For general policy purposes, sexual harassment may be described as unwelcome
sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other physical and expressive behaviors of a
sexual nature. Any student who believes he/she has been sexually harassed should report the
incident(s) immediately to a College official. Any employee who believes he/she has been
sexually harassed should report the incident(s) immediately to a supervisor, the Human
Resources Department, or to the Ethics Hotline Link on DAISY.

The College seeks to eliminate sexual harassment through education at orientation programs and
by encouraging students, staff and faculty to report concerns or complaints. Prompt corrective
actions will be taken to stop sexual harassment whenever it occurs. Students or employees who
violate the College’s policy against sexual harassment are subject to disciplinary actions, up to
and including dismissal or termination.

Emergency Response and Evacuation Procedures

In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of the
Administrative Director, constitutes an immediate threat, a campus wide “Emergency
Notification” will be issued. The “Emergency Notification” will be issued in one or a
combination of the following methods: electronic e-mail to Dover Business College email
addresses, our website (www.dover.edu), our Blackboard student portal
(https://my.dover.edu/webapps/portal/frameset.jsp), telephone, voice mail, media
announcements, and portable public address equipment.

The Administrative Director will also determine if the situation requires the activation of the
Emergency Management Plan. The Emergency Management Plan is a campus based plan that
guides the Emergency Management Team during a major emergency. The team leader or their
designee would be responsible for the following actions:
       Ensuring that notification is made to emergency responders (police department, fire
       department, emergency medical services, etc.).
       Coordinating with responding emergency services personnel.
       Ensuring that notification is made to the Emergency Management Team (EMT).
       Ensuring that Command Centers (designated locations on each campus) are operational
       with all necessary communication and emergency equipment. (A secondary Command
       Center will also be designated where reasonable.)
       Determining if a lock down or a full or partial evacuation of any building is necessary
       and initiating that process if warranted.


Procedure for disseminating information to the larger community

In the event of an emergency, the Administrative Director can utilize Dover Business College’s
Information Line (1-800-GO-DOVER) to become an Information Hotline Number that will
provide information to the general public.
