Use of Force
College staff may use reasonable force in a manner necessary to assume control of a situation. Such force is lawful when used to assist law enforcement in making an arrest, to assist a person who is about to be bodily injured, to prevent an offense against his/her own person, and to prevent malicious interference with real or personal property. When an individual is subdued, staff will notify security, their supervisor, and the individual’s parent (s) or guardian if under 18.
The public character of the college does not grant to individuals an unlimited license to engage in activity which limits, interferes with, or otherwise disrupts normal activities
Any person found on school premises who has not or will not register as a visitor, will be asked to leave campus.
College employees should contact Security when they observe or receive a report that property is being damaged, destroyed or stolen.
CPTC is committed to maintaining an environment free from all acts or threats of violence. Individuals who engage in violent or threatening behavior may be removed from the premises, subject to disciplinary action, or subject to criminal prosecution. Any person who perceives an immediate threat of bodily harm should contact 911 immediately and then Security.
