Security Policies and Procedures
Updated by AU Staff
It is Alliance University policy that reports of all incidents of actual or attempted criminal behavior, violence, vandalism, threatening or suspicious circumstances should be reported to Residence Life Staff, the Dean of Students and the Director of Facilities. All departments under Student Development (Career Services, Counseling Services, Health Services, Spiritual Formation, Student Activities, and Residence Life) are mandated to follow the same protocol in reporting any incidents or concerns in writing and submitted to the appropriate offices. Training in regards to the proper procedure of filing of an incident report is offered to all paraprofessional staff throughout the academic year as well as during orientation. The procedures for reporting a crime are also part of this training. The College provides a yearly mandatory training.
Campus Law Enforcement Policy
Alliance University utilizes Campus Safety Officers provided by SCC, Inc. as its law enforcement authority. SSC is committed to meeting the unique security needs of learning institutions, educators and administrators. An educational institution’s security posture is a critical resource that supports education, research, administrative services, and campus life. SSC security experts utilize best practices and emerging trends in educational institution security to assist Alliance University in providing an atmosphere that is both welcoming and secure.
Campus Safety Department, which is managed by the Alliance University Facilities Department, conducts security checks of campus facilities, including residence halls. A Campus Safety Officer is on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Campus Safety Officers do not possess arrest power, but have the authority to execute emergency protocol by dialing 911. In non-emergency incidents, Campus Safety Officers report student-related instances to the VP and Dean of Students and faculty/staff instances to the Director of Facilities. Criminal incidents are referred to the local police who have jurisdiction on campus. Critical/Non-Critical Incident Reports are completed for each incident on campus. Campus Safety Officers have the authority to ask persons for identification and to determine whether individuals have lawful business at Alliance University. Security Officers have the authority to issue parking tickets.
Information on safety and security is provided to students and employees through the university website, brochures, newsletters, the student newspaper and other means as appropriate. The Facilities Department is responsible for fire safety, key and lock control. They inspect campus facilities and promptly make repairs in areas that may affect safety and security.
Alliance University has a Residential Student facility located in Jersey City, New Jersey and a campus located in the city of New York, New York. Alliance University maintains a close working relationship with the Jersey City Police Department and the New York City Police Department. Meetings are held between the leaders of these agencies on both a formal and informal basis. The Campus Safety Department also works with the New York State Police when necessary. Campus Safety Officers and the local police departments communicate regularly on the scene of incidents that occur in and around the campus area. Campus Safety Officers work closely with the investigative staff of the local police departments when incidents arise that require joint investigative efforts, resources, crime related reports and exchanges of information, as deemed necessary.
Alliance University has written Memorandums of Understanding with the following:
Jersey City Police Department
207 7th St. 2nd Floor
Jersey City, NJ 07301
New York City Police Department
One Police Plaza
New York, NY 10038
Alliance University encourages the accurate and prompt reporting of all crimes to campus security and the appropriate law enforcement agency. The University cooperates fully with all law enforcement agencies. All crime victims and witnesses are strongly encouraged to immediately report crime to Campus Safety and the appropriate police agency. Prompt reporting will assure timely warning notices on campus and timely disclosure of crime statistics. A crime log is kept on file at the Facilities Department; for more information, please contact the Facilities Department at 646-564-6722.
Security and Access
Access to campus buildings and grounds is a privilege extended to students, faculty, staff, and authorized guests. Alliance University encourages an open environment with limited constraints while still ensuring the reasonable protection of all members of the community.
The public can attend cultural and recreational events on campus with access limited to the facilities in which these events are held. To report any violations of this policy or to report suspicious persons, contact:
- Contact Manhattan campus safety at x6198 from a campus phone. (845) 261-9504 or (646) 378-6198.
- Jersey City "The Bay" Campus Security (845) 222-8812
Students, faculty and employees have access to academic, recreational and administrative facilities on campus during regular hours of operation. All students and employees must obtain a Alliance University ID Card. ID cards must be carried at all times while on College property and presented when requested by College authority. During non-business hours access to the College facilities is by key, if issued.
All maintenance vendors are required to report to the Facilities office and log in. At that time they are escorted to their work site and monitored at their work site by Campus Safety or Facilities personnel. At the conclusion of their work day on site, the maintenance vendors are required to report back to the Facilities office and log out for the day.
The front lobby security desk at The Bay in Jersey City is staffed 24 hours per day, 365 days of the year. Students and Staff are required to scan their university issued ID cards at both the entranceway activation box and the front lobby activation box before gaining entry into the residence hall.
Visitors must check in with the front security desk upon arrival, sign into the visitor log, and be accompanied by a staff member at all times. Failure to sign in and remain with a staff member may result in disciplinary action by the Professional Residence Life staff.
Forgotten Student ID:
A temporary access card for each housing assignment is located at the security desk and can be checked out by students to use if they have forgotten their ID in their room. The temporary access card is to be returned to the desk within 30 minutes of use. Failure to return the temporary access card may result in a fine. Students may only check out the temporary access card for their official housing assignment.
Lost Student ID:
The student account will be fined $50 per lost ID. Failure to pay fines posted on a student account may affect financial clearance for the following semester. Students are responsible for contacting their financial advisor to settle any fines and make payment.
Possession, Use, and Sale of Alcoholic Beverages and Illegal Drugs
Alliance University’s Drug and Alcohol Policy can be found in the Student Handbook.
