A. Potential safety hazards are to be reported to the Department of Public Safety by any staff, student, or visitor. There is continuous patrol of the campus by officers to check for safety hazards and other hazards. These hazards are communicated to appropriate departments by the Public Safety dispatcher for repair, replacement, or rectification of the hazard. The Report of Safety Hazard form can be used.
B. Public Safety must be notified of any scheduled event on campus. Notification to appropriate agencies, (i.e., Fire Department, ambulance service, or other law enforcement agencies, Weakley County utilities, etc.) is determined by the type of event. The Department of Public Safety will, after assessing the event, notify the required agency to be on standby or to be present at the event.
C. In order to maintain a safe environment, visitors are required to abide by city and state laws and by University of Tennessee regulations regarding conduct on a state campus.
(1) The use or possession of alcohol is forbidden on campus.
(2) The possession of a weapon is forbidden on campus.
D. In the event that a visitor violates any laws or regulations through behavior or activity, the visitor is subject to being removed from campus temporarily, banned from campus, and/or criminally prosecuted as the transgression dictates.
E. Any hazards which have been identified will be routed by the Department of Public Safety to the appropriate department for correction (i.e., Department of Maintenance, Department of Grounds, Department of Student Affairs, etc.). These corrections will be made as soon as possible in order to maintain a safe campus environment.
