Criminal On or Near Campus

Upon notification of a criminal on or near campus:
The offices notified will alert all classrooms and offices on their floor. All occupants of the building will lock their doors and remain inside the locked room, staying away from windows and doors until notified that the emergency is over.

If, during the lockdown, a student or employee enters the building, they may be let into one of the locked rooms if the situation is such that it is safe to do so. Should a Belmont Community member enter a building during a lockdown and be unable to enter the locked rooms, he/she should find an unoccupied room, lock it if possible, and remain there until the situation is resolved.
