The procedure for preparing this annual disclosure of crime statistics report is to obtain data requested from the following sources: local law enforcement agency that has jurisdiction, the North Miami Police Department, and non-police officials (Director, Facilities Department) and landlord/ building superintendent. These statistics reported are gathered, compiled and reported to Bellasa management over the past year and have occurred either on-campus, in off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Bellasa, or on public property adjacent to the campus.

GENERAL INFORMATION

  1. This institution does not employ campus security personnel but encourages both its employees and students to immediately report suspected criminal activity or other emergencies to the institutional official and/or in the event of emergency to directly contact local law enforcement or other emergency response agencies by dialing (911).
  2. All students and employees are required to report any crime or emergency to an institutional official promptly. If a student or employee wished to report a crime on anonymous or confidential basis, the institutional official will be prepared to record and report the crime, but not the name of the informant. The student or employee may, in order to maintain confidentiality, submit the information in writing to his/her institutional official without signature. If the student wishes not to maintain confidentiality, the student will contact his/her teacher or school official who in turn will contact the nearest supervisor to report criminal actions or emergencies to the appropriate agency by calling (911).
  3. Students are encouraged to exercise awareness for their own personal safety and the safety of others. The following is a description of policies, rules and programs designed to inform students and employees about the prevention of crimes on campus.
    • Do not leave personal property in classrooms
    • Report to an institutional official, any suspicious persons.
    • Always try to walk in groups outside the school premises.
    • If you are waiting for a ride, wait within sight of other people
    • Employees (staff and faculty) will close and lock all doors, windows and blinds turn off lights when leaving a room.

Notifications

The Institute’s administration will alert the Bellasa community of any threats to the community by personal announcement in the classes and on the campus for any Clery Act crimes or Emergency Notifications. E-mail notification will be used to back-up this method.

Emergency Evacuation Procedures

The safety of Bellasa’s employees, faculty, students and visitors is paramount. It is crucial that the school facilities are maintained in a condition that allow for quick and safe evacuation in the event of an emergency. The School Director, Robert Babani, is to be notified in the event of any fire / emergency evacuation at 786-631-5676.

In the event of fire or other emergencies that require the evacuation of Bellasa facilities students and staff will immediately evacuate the buildings. The school requires complete evacuation of buildings during any alarm event and will discipline any student or staff who is noncompliant. A member of the Management Team, along with the School Director, is assigned to coordinate the evacuation of all students and staff members.

  • If you see fire or smell smoke, pull the nearest fire alarm and begin evacuation procedures at once.
  • If you can do so without putting yourself at risk, rescue individuals who may need assistance. (Certain individuals in your building may need assistance with evacuation or getting to a safe location).
  • Close all doors behind you. (This action helps to contain the fire to as small of an area as possible).
  • Never prop open fire doors. This action will prevent safe evacuation of all building occupants.
  • Assemble outside of the building in the pre-determined locations (front of the building – parking area directly across the street from the building). Never go to another location during an evacuation. Please stay with your classmates and instructor, if possible
  • NEVER block roadways or entrances into buildings. The City of North Miami’s Fire Department must have free and clear access to the building and all entrances.
  • Move away and remain a safe distance from the building. Do not re-enter the building until permitted by the Fire Department officials.

Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Policy

Bellasa is committed to providing an environment free of the abuse of alcohol and the illegal use of alcohol and other drugs. Bellasa has adopted and implemented programs that seek to prevent the illicit use of drugs and the abuse of alcohol by Bellasa community members.

Standard of Conduct: The unlawful possession, use, or distribution of drugs and alcohol is prohibited on property owned and controlled by Bellasa. No employee or student is to report to work or class while under the influence of illegal drugs or alcohol.

Sanctions: Violation of the policies and laws described in this statement by an employee or student is grounds for disciplinary action up to and including termination or expulsion. Such disciplinary actions also may include reprimand or suspension. Student violations will be documented in the company database and with counseling forms. Staff action will be documented in their personnel file. Additionally, a violation may be reason for evaluation and treatment of a drug and/or alcohol-use disorder or referral for prosecution consistent with local, state, and federal criminal law. Disciplinary action by Bellasa does not preclude the possibility of criminal charges against a student or employee. The filing of criminal charges similarly does not preclude action by Bellasa.

Other Legal Sanctions: State law prohibits the possession of alcoholic beverages by persons under the age of 21. No person may sell, give, serve or permit to be served alcoholic beverages to a person under 21, and it is unlawful for a person under 21 to misrepresent his age in order to obtain alcohol. Violation of either of these offenses is also punishable by a definite term of imprisonment of up to 60 days and a fine of $500.

Misrepresentation of age may also lead to curtailment of driving privileges. Under state law, it is a crime for any person to possess or distribute controlled substances/drugs as described in Section 893.03, Florida Statutes, except as authorized by law. Punishment for such crimes ranges from first-degree misdemeanors (up to one-year imprisonment and up to a $1,000 fine) to first-degree felonies (up to 30 years imprisonment and up to a $10,000 fine).

Misrepresentation of age may also lead to curtailment of driving privileges. Under state law, it is a crime for any person to possess or distribute controlled substances/drugs as described in Section 893.03, Florida Statutes, except as authorized by law. Punishment for such crimes ranges from first-degree misdemeanors (up to one-year imprisonment and up to a $1,000 fine) to first-degree felonies (up to 30 years imprisonment and up to a $10,000 fine).

Health Risks Associated with the Use of Illicit Drugs and the Abuse of Alcohol

Alcohol consumption causes a number of marked changes in behavior. Even low doses of alcohol significantly impair the judgment and coordination required to drive a car safely, increasing the likelihood that the driver will be involved in an accident. The use of small amounts of alcohol by a pregnant woman can damage the fetus. Low to moderate doses of alcohol also increases the incidence of a variety of aggressive acts. Moderate to high doses of alcohol cause marked impairment in higher mental functions, severely altering a person’s ability to learn and remember information. Heavy use may result in chronic depression and suicide and also may be associated with the abuse of other drugs. Very high doses can cause respiratory depression and death. If combined with other depressants of the central nervous system, much lower doses of alcohol will produce the effects described. Even occasional heavy drinking may be associated with the harmful effects described above. Binge drinking, which occurs over an extended period of time, involves repeated use of alcohol to the point of intoxication. A person may give up usual activities and responsibilities during this time in order to use alcohol, and serious impairment in all areas of functioning may occur. Long-term heavy alcohol use can cause digestive disorders, cirrhosis of the liver, circulatory system disorders, and impairment of the central nervous system—all of which may lead to early death. Repeated use of alcohol can lead to dependence, and at least 15 to 20 percent of heavy users eventually will become problem drinkers or alcoholics if they continue drinking. Sudden cessation of alcohol intake is likely to produce withdrawal symptoms, including severe anxiety, tremors, hallucinations, and convulsions, which can be life threatening. The use of illegal drugs and the misuse of prescription and other drugs also pose a serious threat to health. The use of marijuana (cannabis) may cause impairment of short-term memory, comprehension, and ability to perform tasks requiring concentration. Marijuana use also may cause lung damage, paranoia, and possible psychosis. The use of narcotics, depressants, stimulants, and hallucinogens may cause nervous system disorders and possible death as the result of an overdose. Illicit inhalants can cause liver damage.

Reporting Sexual Assault:

After an incident of any type of sexual assault, the victim should consider getting medical attention as soon as possible. In the State of Florida, evidence may be collected, despite you’re not choosing to make a report.

    • The order may be issued by the court even if the defendant is sentenced to a state prison or county jail or even if the imposition of the sentence is suspended and the defendant is placed on probation.

If you feel you are a victim of stalking and fear for your safety, please call 911 immediately. Additionally:

  • If possible, have a phone nearby at all times, preferably one to which the stalker has never had access. Memorize emergency numbers, and make sure that 911 and helpful family or friends are on speed dial.
  • Treat all threats, direct and indirect, as legitimate and inform law enforcement immediately.
  • When out of the house or work environment, try not to travel alone and try to stay in public areas.
  • Get a new, unlisted phone number. Leave the old number active and connected to an answering machine or voicemail. Have a friend, advocate, or law enforcement screen the calls, and save any messages from the stalker. These messages, particularly those that are explicitly abusive or threatening, can be critical evidence for law enforcement to build a stalking case against the offender.
  • Do not interact with the person stalking or harassing you. Responding to stalker’s actions may reinforce their behavior.
  • Consider obtaining a protective order against the stalker. Some states offer stalking protective orders and other victims may be eligible for protective orders under their state’s domestic violence statutes.
  • Trust your instincts. If you’re somewhere that doesn’t feel safe, either find ways to make it safer, or leave.

For all other non-emergencies please refer to the stalking resource center web site below for detailed literature on safety planning.

Active Bystander Intervention

A bystander, or witness, is someone who sees a situation but may or may not know what to do, may think others will act or may be afraid to do something. Don’t let fears prevent you from acting as a responsible member of our Bellasa Community. Bystander intervention includes recognizing situations of potential harm, understanding institutional and cultural conditions that can facilitate violence / harm to others and identifying safe and effective intervention options then taking action to intervene. Use your best judgment and common sense. Do not choose a course of action that places you or anyone else at risk of harm. Learn to recognize signs when someone is in danger and safely intervene in a potentially dangerous situation. The most effective time to act may be later and not on the spot. You may want to get advice before taking steps, reach out to the Administration.

Five steps toward taking action (Adapted from Darley and Latane, 1968)

  1. Notice the event as unusual?
  2. Consider whether the situation demands your action
  3. Decide if you have a responsibility to act
  4. Choose what form of assistance to use
  5. Understand how to implement the choice safely

Not Alone was created by the White House Task Force during the Obama Administration this information is for students, schools, and anyone interested in finding resources on how to respond to and prevent sexual assault. This information is now located on: https://www.justice.gov/ovw/protecting-students-sexual-assault

Standard of Conduct: Any occurrence of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking is prohibited on property owned and controlled by Bellasa. Any employee or student under investigation of such an occurrence is NOT to report to work or class until the investigation is complete.

Sanctions: Violation of the policies and laws described in this statement by an employee or student is grounds for disciplinary action up to and including termination or expulsion. Such disciplinary actions also may include reprimand or suspension. Student violations will be documented in the company database and with counseling forms. Staff action will be documented in their personnel file. Additionally, a reporting will be reason for notification to local police department for full investigation. Disciplinary action by Bellasa does not preclude the possibility of criminal charges against a student or employee. The filing of criminal charges similarly does not preclude action by Bellasa.

Emergency Response and Evacuation Drills

Bellasa conducts a test of the evacuation procedures at least once a year. The test is unannounced to the students and takes place at a time when most of the students, faculty and staff are expected to be present on campus. An emergency response log, including the description of the exercise is maintained in the Administrators office and includes the date and the time.
