Security Report

REPORTING CRIME, EMERGENCIES AND NON-EMERGENCIES ON CAMPUS, AT THE 1600 CHURCH RD CONDOS, AND AT THE BOOKSTORE

The procedure to take when a medical, fire or criminal emergency or non-emergency occurs is as follows: 

Step 1: For any emergency (medical, fire or criminal), immediately call 911.

An emergency is any life-threatening situation—fires, medical emergencies in which an ambulance is needed, and crime situations requiring onsite police response. It would include the following:

  • Any crime that is in progress or where the offender is still on the scene (or has just left the scene)
  • All serious violent crimes—homicide, robbery, sexual assault, domestic violence, assault—even if the crime is no longer in progress or the offender has left the scene
  • All fires and medical emergencies
  • Building intruders. If you see a door or window forced open, do not go in. Call 911 from the nearest phone.
  • Vehicle crashes involving personal injury, major property damage, or traffic tie-ups
  • Seeing a criminal you know is wanted by the police

In case of fire emergencies only: In addition to calling 911, activate the nearest fire alarm pull box by pulling down on the lever to alert others in the building and then exit the building to a safe location.

Treatment of serious injuries should begin within three to four minutes of the accident.

Any non-emergency incident should be immediately reported to the Cheltenham Township Police Department by calling 215-885-1600, if on campus or at the 1600 Church Rd condos, and to the Horsham Township Police Department by calling 215-643-8284, if at the Bookstore.

Step 2: Any emergency or non-emergency (medical, fire or criminal) should also be reported to the the VP of Campus Life and Dean of Students, the Associate Dean of Students, or the International Student Advisor, who will, if necessary, assist in contacting the police and medical authorities. If an emergency or non-emergency is reported to a student or employee other than a person in one of the above-named positions, that person should immediately report it to the VP of Campus Life and Dean of Students, the Associate Dean of Students, or the International Student Advisor.

Step 3: File a written report of the medical, fire or criminal emergency or non-emergency with the Seminary within 72 hours of the emergency or non-emergency. The VP of Campus Life and Dean of Students, the Associate Dean of Students, or the International Student Advisor.may assist in filing the report.

Procedure to Follow if a Sexual Offense Occurs

Students: Please reference and follow the seminary’s “Policies and Procedures Regarding Sexual Harassment and Sex Offense” in the student handbook on Courses.

An employee who is the victim of a sexual offense at the seminary should do the following:

Step 1: Get to a place of safety first!

Step 2: Obtain necessary medical treatment. If emergency medical attention is needed, call 911. Go immediately to a doctor or hospital for treatment of any injuries and for other tests, which can provide important medical evidence. In such situations, individuals should make special effort to preserve evidence which may be necessary to prove criminal conduct. (Ideally, a victim of sexual offense should not wash, douche, use the toilet, or change clothing prior to a medical exam.)

Step 3: Contact the Associate Dean of Students or the VP of Campus Life and Dean of Students in a timely manner. If an incident of sexual offense is reported to any other person in the seminary, that person should immediately report to one of the people in the above-named positions. A written report of the sexual offense incident should be filed with the seminary within 72 hours of the incident.

The Associate Dean of Students or the VP of Campus Life and Dean of Students may assist the victim with any of the above steps.

  1. Get necessary medical attention.
  2. Contact Cheltenham or Horsham Township Police or the London Police, if victim requests this assistance.
  3. File a written report with the seminary.

Notifying the police does not obligate the victim to prosecute. Filing a report with the seminary also does not obligate the victim to prosecute.

The seminary community may obtain information concerning registered sex offenders from the PA State Police at http://www.pameganslaw.state.pa.us/.

CRIME RECORDS AND REPORTING OF CRIME STATISTICS

In accordance with Pennsylvania’s Uniform Crime Reporting Act and College and University Security Regulations, crime on the Seminary’s campus property or 1600 Church Rd condos or at the Bookstore’s leased location is reported to the Pennsylvania State Police. These statistics will be shared, upon request, with the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Office of the Attorney General. Also, in accordance with the United States Campus Security Act of 1990 (Clery Act), the Seminary collects crime statistics for the United States Department of Education.

All crimes should be reported to Physical Plant, which has primary responsibility for the recording of crimes and providing updated information on crime statistics for this annual report.

State law requires that crime statistics be determined by dividing the number of crimes by full-time-equivalent students and non-student employees. The following is a statement of all crime at the Seminary’s campus property or the Bookstore’s leased location for the most recent three-year period:

Westminster does not have policies or procedures regarding confidential crime reporting. In compliance with HEOA requirements, the Seminary will, upon written request, disclose to the alleged victim of any crime of violence or sex offense the results of any disciplinary proceeding conducted by the Seminary against a student who is the alleged perpetrator of such crime or offense. If the alleged victim is deceased as a result of the crime or offense, the information shall be provided, upon request, to the next of kin of the alleged victim.

Westminster does not dictate procedures that encourage licensed professional counselors and practicing pastoral counselors to inform persons that they are counseling about procedures for confidential crime reporting (for inclusion in statistics). Westminster defers to counselor-client privilege and counselor responsibility to report crimes that legally must be reported.

Westminster does not have off-campus locations of student organizations officially recognized by the institution and so does not have policy concerning the monitoring and recording through local police agencies of criminal activity.

In addition to the security report, the Seminary’s “Policies and Procedures Regarding Sexual Harassment and Sex Offense” informs students and employees about the prevention of crimes.

CRIME LOG

Westminster does not maintain a police or security department of any kind and so is exempt from the daily crime log maintenance requirement.

SECURITY AND ACCESS OF CAMPUS, 1600 CHURCH RD CONDOS, AND BOOKSTORE FACILITIES

The size, suburban location, and character of the Seminary community promote a sense of safety, and the Seminary has enjoyed a good safety and security record for many years. Safety is, however, a joint responsibility. Westminster encourages you to help maintain your own safety by using common sense safety practices such as being aware of your surroundings, exercising caution in walking alone in isolated or poorly lit areas, reporting suspicious activity, and not leaving your car or office unlocked or your personal belongings unattended.

The Cheltenham Township Police Department occasionally patrols the Seminary campus and 1600 Church Rd condos and the Horsham Township Police Department the Bookstore’s leased location as part of their routine duties. Cheltenham Township Police has authority over any illegal acts on campus and the 1600 Church Rd condos and the Horsham Township Police over any illegal acts at the Bookstore’s leased location.

All buildings on campus have fire alarm systems. The fire alarm systems in Machen Hall, Van Til Hall, the Library and Andreas Academic Center, and the Carriage House consist of pull boxes, smoke detectors and heat detectors. All systems are constantly monitored and alert the Fire Department.

The 1600 Church Rd condos and Bookstore’s leased location each have an integrated fire alarm system, which consists of pull boxes, heat detectors, fire extinguishers and sprinklers. It has an alarm system, which includes an annunciator panel, audible and visible alarms, and a central alarm control panel.

Everyone is urged to become familiar with the location of emergency exits and fire extinguishers on campus, at the 1600 Church Rd condos for their residents, and at the Bookstore for Bookstore employees. The Physical Plant Department (215-962-4893; physicalplant@wts.edu) can inform you of the location of fire extinguishers on campus and Bookstore staff of the location of fire extinguishers at the Bookstore.

Other than the annual distribution of these reports as outlined at the beginning of the reports, Westminster does not have programs to inform students and employees about campus and Bookstore security procedures and practices and to encourage students and employees to be responsible for their own security and the security of others.

Security Considerations Used in Maintenance of Campus Facilities 

The Physical Plant Department is responsible for general campus maintenance and safety hazard prevention. The Seminary has installed exterior lighting around buildings, parking lots, and sidewalks. While maintaining an attractive campus, the Seminary keeps shrubs and hedges low for safety reasons. Anyone noting a potential safety hazard should report it to the Physical Plant Department at 215-962-4893 or physicalplant@wts.edu. The Seminary’s Safety Committee is responsible for proposing safety improvements to the campus.

TIMELY WARNINGS

The Seminary will provide timely warnings via email and/or text-messaging to students and employees whenever the administration believes there may be a threat to students and/or employees.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE AND EVACUATION PROCEDURES

Emergency Response Procedures

Procedures for immediate notification of the Seminary community include the Seminary’s phone system, Seminary email, walkie talkies for select employees, and text messaging.

1. Once a possible emergency situation comes to the attention of the VP of Campus Life and Dean of Students, the Associate Dean of Students, or the International Student Advisor, or other Westminster authority, he/she will seek to confirm the report either by personally viewing the circumstances or calling Physical Plant personnel to confirm it. If an emergency exists, 911 will be dialed immediately to bring local authorities on campus, the 1600 Church Rd condos, or the Bookstore.

2. If the nature of the emergency is a fire, the alarm for the affected building will be pulled and occupants directed to areas away from the building to allow fire personnel to respond appropriately on arrival.

3. If the nature of the emergency requires notification of either a segment(s) of or the entire community, the appropriate authority will communicate to the affected portion of the community without delay in any of multiple methods deemed appropriate, including using walkie talkies to communicate between campus buildings to staff, direct/intrusive email message to administration and staff through the Seminary’s computer system, and text messaging to all student cell phones as per a pre-established list of numbers.

4. If any portion or the entirety of the community is to be notified, the individuals responsible, in consultation with the VP of Campus Life and Dean of Students or the Provost, for (1) determining appropriate segments of the community and the content of the notification and (2) initiating the notification system of the message are the Associate Dean of Students or the Executive Assistant to the President. Availability at the time of the emergency will determine which of the individuals will proceed to notify the community.

Emergency Lockdown Procedures

DRUG AND ALCOHOL POLICY

Students and employees are reminded that members of the community differ in their convictions about the use of alcohol. Some have formulated positions which require them to abstain from its use. Others have not. Therefore, students and employees are requested to consider the consciences of others in the Seminary. Those who abstain from alcohol use are requested not to condemn those who do not abstain from its use. Those who have not formulated positions requiring abstinence are requested to apply restraint whenever prudence or concern for another warrants it. In the interests of these sensitivities, alcoholic beverages and their consumption are prohibited on campus and at the Bookstore’s leased location.

Illicit drugs are strictly prohibited. The Seminary will cooperate fully with local police in prosecuting offenders who possess, use, or sell drugs. The Seminary has adopted strict disciplinary sanctions regarding possession, use, or sale of illicit drugs.

Any student or employee who unlawfully possesses, uses or distributes illicit drugs or alcohol will be subject to criminal sanctions provided by federal, state, and local law in accordance with the Controlled Substance Act. The sanctions under the federal Controlled Substances Act include imprisonment of up to life and fines for each violation. Under the Pennsylvania Controlled Substances, Drugs, Device, and Cosmetic Act, a person may be imprisoned for up to 15 years or fined up to $250,000 for each violation.

For updated information regarding the federal Controlled Substance Act, and penalties for the possession and trafficking of illicit drugs, please visit the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency’s website: http://www.justice.gov/dea/druginfo/ftp3.shtml. For information regarding the Pennsylvania Controlled Substances, Drugs, Device and Cosmetic Act, please visit the Pennsylvania Department of Health's website: http://www.health.state.pa.us/pdf/ddc/ddcAct.pdf

The Seminary considers a violation of the drug and alcohol policy serious and, subject to applicable law, will take the following appropriate actions itself in response to a violation:

1. Any student or employee convicted by a court of law of being under the influence of alcohol, on- or off-campus, shall be given an immediate warning. A subsequent offense of the same nature, at any time, is sufficient cause for a three-year probation. Counseling may be required as a condition of continuing enrollment/employment. A subsequent offense of any nature, whether described or not described in this Policy, warranting probation which coincides with the probation described for this offense, is sufficient cause for termination of enrollment/employment after due process.

2. Any student or employee convicted by a court of law of being under the influence of illicit drugs or of illicit possession or distribution of alcohol, on- or off-campus, shall be immediately placed upon a three-year probation and may be required to seek counseling as a condition of continuing enrollment/employment. A subsequent offense of the same nature, or of another nature, described in this section or not described in this section, warranting probation which coincides with the probation prescribed for this offense, is sufficient cause for termination of enrollment/employment after due process.

3. Any student or employee observed, by two or more witnesses, to be in possession of alcoholic beverage in any Seminary building or consuming alcoholic beverage on Seminary property shall be given an immediate warning. A subsequent offense of the same nature, at any time, is sufficient cause for a three-year probation and counseling may be required as a condition of continuing enrollment/employment. A subsequent offense of any nature, described in this section or not described in this section, warranting probation which coincides with the probation prescribed for this offense, is sufficient cause for termination of enrollment/employment after due process.

4.  Any student or employee observed to be in possession of illicit drugs, on- or off-campus, shall be reported to law enforcement authorities. The Seminary will cooperate fully in lawful prosecution, including testimony with regard to any accused in a court of law. Any student or employee arrested for such an offense may be suspended until proven guilty or innocent by a court of law. Any student or employee subsequently convicted of possession of illicit drugs shall have his or her enrollment/employment immediately terminated upon due process.

Health Risks Associated with the Use of Illicit Drugs and Alcohol

Please see the health risk information the following websites:

http://www.drugabuse.gov/drugs-abuse/commonly-abused-drugs/health-effects

http://www.ifap.ed.gov/regcomps/attachments/appbchrt.pdf

Drug and Alcohol Abuse Education and Prevention Programs

The Seminary annually distributes to all students and employees information about the physical and psychological dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, as well as a summary of legal sanctions. If an employee recognizes a personal addiction or abuse problem, he or she is encouraged to use the Seminary’s health insurance plans, as appropriate, to address his or her problem. Conscientious efforts to seek help for an alcohol or substance abuse problem will not be noted in personnel records. In addition, the confidential nature of the employee’s counseling and rehabilitation for drug and/or alcohol abuse will be preserved. The Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation (CCEF) is available to counsel and refer resources to anyone with need in this area. 

Westminster Theological Seminary will pay the cost of an initial counseling session at CCEF for any student or employee who needs help to overcome drug/alcohol abuse/addiction. CCEF may refer the student or employee to another provider of services for inpatient or outpatient treatment. Most services are provided by social workers, psychologists or psychiatrists at private offices, and clinics or hospitals. Services generally fall into one or more of the following categories: (1) counseling/therapy; (2) detoxification/treatment; and (3) rehabilitation/re-entry.  Some of these services may be at least partially covered by one’s health insurance.

Biennial Review

Biennially, the Student Development Office will review the drug and alcohol policy and Seminary prevention of drug and alcohol abuse. As part of the review, it will do the following:

  • Review the effectiveness of the drug and alcohol policy and Seminary prevention of abuse and implement needed changes.
  • Review the number of drug- and alcohol-related violations and fatalities that occur on the Seminary campus, at the Seminary bookstore, and as part of Seminary activities and are reported to Seminary officials.
  • Review the number and type of sanctions imposed.
  • Ensure sanctions are consistently enforced.

This review will be provided upon request to the public.

WEAPONS POLICY

Despite some laws that allow people to carry firearms in public, Westminster Theological Seminary prohibits anyone from possessing or carrying weapons of any kind on Seminary property, in Seminary vehicles, or personal vehicles at any Seminary function on or off campus, or while on Seminary business. This includes the following:

  • Any form of weapon or explosive;
  • All firearms;
  • All pneumatic firing devices; and
  • All illegal knives or knives with blades that are more than six inches in length

Employees are responsible for making sure that any item they possess is not prohibited by this policy. Only commissioned law enforcement officers and persons in the military in performance of their official duties, to the extent these parties are legally permitted to possess weapons in the Commonwealth of PA, are permitted to possess weapons on property owned or controlled by Westminster Theological Seminary or at any Seminary-sponsored event.

CAMPUS HOUSING

Westminster Theological Seminary offers singles housing on its main campus. The residences are single sex. The one residence accommodates ten singles in single occupancy rooms. A second residence accommodates five singles in three single and one double occupancy room. A third residence accommodates eight singles in four double occupancy rooms.

Rooms will be assigned to incoming students based on: 1) the order in which the housing application and deposit are received (first choices are given to those who send in the application and deposit early), 2) answers to compatibility questions in the housing application and 3) any stated preferences given in the housing application. Priority will be given to students coming from great distances.

For two-week-long Doctor of Ministry program resident students, rooms are assigned based on the order in which deposits are paid to the finance office. No application is required.

For summer Mastering Theological English program resident students, rooms are assigned based on the order in which the housing application and deposit are received.

The doors to Machen Hall in which the one residence is located are locked at the close of the business day and remain locked on the weekends. The entrance to a second residence with year-long residents will be locked at all times. The entrance to a third residence will be locked at all times. Every residence room has an individual lock and all windows have locks in two of the three residence. In a third all windows and outside accesses have locks; individual bedrooms do not.

Visitors are not permitted in residence rooms after 10:00 p.m. or in lounge areas after 12:00 a.m. Same-gender overnight visitors may reside with a campus resident for two nights only if there is an extra bed available. Beyond two nights, a $20 per night fee will be assessed. Overnight visitors are not allowed without prior approval from the International Student Advisor or the VP of Campus Life and Dean of Students.

MISSING CAMPUS RESIDENT NOTIFICATION POLICY

If a campus resident assistant (R.A.) or campus resident notices that another campus resident has been missing for 24 hours, the R.A.s should be consulted to see if the campus resident missing previously notified an R.A. of the absence.

If a campus resident missing did not previously notify an R.A. of the absence, the following procedures should be followed:

  1. The residence R.A. shall contact the VP of Campus Life and Dean of Students with the information of the missing person. If he cannot be reached, the Associate Dean of Students shall be contacted.
  2. The residence R.A. shall call Cheltenham Police and notify them of the missing campus resident.
  3. The residence R.A. shall let the Physical Plant Manager know that the police have been notified.

At time of initial residency in a residence, each campus resident will be required to submit primary contact person(s) information to the Student Development Office. The primary contact person(s) will be notified by Student Development within 24 hours of the Cheltenham Police determining that the campus resident is missing. This contact information will be kept confidential by the Student Development Office.

Campus residents must notify a resident assistant in advance of being gone from the residence for 24 hours or more. The police will be contacted after 24 hours of a campus resident’s absence, if the campus resident did not supply advance notice to an R.A. of the absence.

Policies or rules on portable electrical appliances, smoking and open flames

Portable electrical appliances such as hot plates, microwaves, rice cookers, etc. are not permitted in residences outside of residence kitchens. No open flames (candles, smoking, incense burning, etc.) are allowed in residences. Smoking is not permitted in any Seminary building under any circumstances. 

Procedures for Evacuation 

Exit the building immediately. Use the nearest available exit.

When exiting a smoke-filled room or building, stay low, crouch down and move quickly.

If all exits are blocked, stay by the window and yell for “HELP”! DO NOT go into closets or under desks. 

If you should catch on fire, STOP, DROP and ROLL, until the fire is out!

Assemble on the lawn behind Van Til Hall or on the lawn in front of library. Keep away from all buildings and cars. Do not attempt to drive your vehicle. Be aware of any arriving fire and emergency vehicles.

Remember “RACE,” the acronym for the four essential steps to take if you discover a fire:

Rescue persons in immediate danger from the room on fire.
Alarm
must be sounded. Dial “911” and pull the closest fire alarm.
Contain
fire by closing all doors in the fire area, once everyone has been removed from the room containing the fire.
Extinguish
small fires, if the rescue, alarm, and contain procedures have been followed and the fire department has not yet arrived. Smother the small fire, use a fire extinguisher, or pour water on it if it is NOT an electrical or grease fire.

Annually, after the beginning of the new academic year, Student Development will require all  campus residents to attend the fire marshal’s presentation, arranged by the Seminary’s safety committee. Continuing residence in campus residence units is dependent upon attendance at this presentation.

Residence fires should be reported to Physical Plant.

Machen Hall had its hard-wired fire alarm system upgraded by Security On Line Systems in July 2010. The Carriage House was added to the system in 2011. The Van Til Hall fire alarm system was added in August 2013. The Seok Nam House fire alarm system was added July 2015.

FIRE LOG

Physical Plant will maintain a fire log that records by the date of report fires in the residences reported. Included in the log must be the following for each fire:

Nature of fire
Date of fire
Time of fire
Location of fire

Entries in log, or additions to entries, must be made within two business days of receipt of information. The log for the most recent 60-day period will be open to public inspection during normal business hours in Physical Plant. Physical Plant will make available older portions of the log within two business days of a request for public inspection. Physical Plant will make an annual report to the campus community, by October 1 of each year, on fires recorded in the log by updates to the fire safety report.
