Orlando Crime Rates and Security Information

This information is provided as part of Herzing University’s commitment to safety and security and is in compliance with the Federal Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990.


Campus policies regarding the reporting of criminal actions and emergencies: Herzing University students and employees will report all observed criminal actions and bona fide emergencies to the University Campus President/Director.  In his/her absence, they should report to the Academic Dean. If necessary, the administrator will contact the emergency response unit of the local police by dialing 911. The administrator to whom the crime or emergency is reported will make written notation, including names, date and time of the reported incident and will remain on duty to assist the police in establishing details of the incident reported. Further, the University Campus President/Director will maintain a file of such reported incidents and will endeavor to learn of and note the conclusions. In the absence of both the President and the Academic Dean, reporting of criminal actions, and/or emergencies to the appropriate authorities should be undertaken directly by the employee or student who has either been victimized or has observed an alleged criminal action.

Campus policies concerning law enforcement: It is the established duty of all Herzing personnel to promptly report criminal incidents to the senior administrator present when a reportable incident occurs. Likewise, students are to be aware of campus law policies and are expected to report possible infractions immediately. Herzing University maintains a working relationship with our local police department.  Students are counseled at the beginning of each term to report all crimes as suspected or observed.

Campus policies concerning security personnel: Some Herzing University campuses employ campus security personnel. The role of campus security is to deter crimes from occurring on or near campus property. Any crimes that do occur on campus should be reported to campus security immediately. Campus security will document the incident and contact local law enforcement if necessary. Herzing University campus security has a working relationship with local and state law enforcement, but does not have any formal agreement for the investigation of alleged criminal offenses.

For campuses without campus security personnel, all crimes that occur on campus should be reported immediately to the Campus President or another Director on campus. If a crime occurs while campus security or the Campus President/Director is unavailable, please contact the appropriate law enforcement agency immediately. Students, staff and faculty involved in or witness to a crime are encouraged to give accurate and immediate information to campus security and the appropriate law enforcement agencies for all reported crimes.

Campus policies in regards of awareness: Herzing University conducts new student orientation each term for all new students. This orientation includes information about on-site security and crime awareness. Employees are informed of crime reporting policies, campus law and crime statistics at the time of their employment and are given updates yearly. Further, all students are counseled in drug awareness as a condition of Herzing’s eligibility to participate in Title IV financial assistance programs. Herzing University has no specific program designed to inform students and employees about the prevention of crimes, with the exception of those described above and occasional seminars from outside authorities.

Campus policies with regard to facilities access: The University building premises are managed by Herzing University. These premises are considered off limits to all but those members of the general public who have specific business concerns or relations with Herzing University. Therefore, all unidentified visitors may be challenged for purpose of visit at any time by members of the Herzing University staff and administration. Visitors deemed as intruders will be reported to the University Campus President and/or the Police Department when a staff member is not able to cause the unauthorized individual to vacate the University property. Students, staff, and faculty are urged to report intrusions immediately to members of the administration.


Not applicable for students, staff or faculty at a distance. For students, staff or faculty on site: Herzing University commits to immediately notify the campus community of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of those on campus, unless the notification at that time will compromise efforts to assist victims or contain the emergency. Notification of such events will be communicated to students and staff by means of email, text messages, telephone calls or any other form of effective communication. Emergency information will be disseminated to the larger community by campus security, the Campus President or a Herzing University Director.

Emergency response and evacuation procedures are tested annually. Each campus conducts their own annual emergency response and evacuation procedures test and documents the details of this test. Upon request, written documentation of our annual test will be provided at the campus level. Please contact the campus front desk to obtain more information about a specific campus’s annual emergency response and evacuation procedure test. If evacuation from the school is necessary due to an emergency, please follow the posted evacuation procedures.


The cooperation and involvement of students, faculty and staff is absolutely necessary. Every individual must assume responsibility for their own safety and the security of their property by following simple precautions and operating with common sense.


It is the policy of Herzing University to provide a positive environment which is conducive to learning. The unlawful possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol on school property or in connection with any school activity is strictly prohibited. This prohibition applies to all employees and students. Violation of these provisions by a student may lead to the imposition of a disciplinary sanction, up to and including suspension or expulsion. Herzing University employees are also subject to disciplinary sanctions for violation of these provisions occurring on University property or the worksite during work time, up to and including termination from employment.

For those students who choose to use alcohol, Herzing University encourages students to drink responsibly. Consuming alcohol has many risk factors and can lead to dependency. With excessive use, liver, brain, heart, and stomach destruction can occur without apparent symptoms. Alcohol is one of the leading causes of preventable deaths in the United States. For help with alcohol dependency or related concerns, go to


Carrying or bringing firearms, knives, handcuffs, or weapons of any type is strictly prohibited. If this policy is violated, the police will be called and the offender escorted off school premises. Student or staff offenders may be terminated, suspended, or put on probation at the discretion of the administration.


Sexual Assault Prevention: Staff and students are urged to be cognizant of situations which might put them in danger of sexual assault, such as walking out to dark parking lots by themselves, waiting in an unlit area for public transportation by themselves or even working alone at the University late in the evening. In particular, female staff members and female students should not work by themselves at the University and should travel in groups as often as possible when going to public transportation or going to their automobile. Any staff member who is aware of a situation which could give rise to the risk of sexual assault should bring the situation to the attention of the University Campus President.

Sexual Harassment: Herzing University wishes to strongly indicate its opposition to sexual harassment and identify the complete procedures available to victims whether staff members, employees or students as well as disciplinary penalties which could be imposed for sexually harassing conduct or behavior.


  • Sexual harassment includes any unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature where tolerance of such actions is made a condition of employment, or which interferes with an individual’s work performance or simply creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive University environment. It can include harassment between employees, between employees and students and between students.
  • The creation of an intimidating, hostile or offensive University environment may include such actions as persistent sexual comments or the display of obscene or sexually oriented photographs or drawings. However, conduct or actions that arise out of a personal or social relationship and that are not intended to have a social relationship effect and that are not intended to have a discriminatory employment effect or discriminatory grading or treatment effect in the event of students, may not be viewed as harassment. (The University discourages staff from seeking or becoming involved in relationships with students that exceed normal and usual educational relationships developed to promote the instructional process.) The University will determine whether such conduct constitutes sexual harassment, based on a review of the facts and circumstances of each situation.
  • The University will not condone any sexual harassment of its employees or students. All employees, including supervisors, managers and students, will be subject to severe discipline, up to and including discharge, for any act of sexual harassment they commit.
  • Employees or students who feel victimized by sexual harassment are encouraged to report the harassment to the University Campus President. If the University Campus President is the source of the alleged harassment, the employee should report the problem to the President of the Herzing University system. Twenty four hours after reporting the harassment to the University Campus President, the person filing the complaint must provide a written account of the incident to the President. The President will give a preliminary report to the complainant within one school day after receiving the written complaint and, in general, will inform the complainant and the accused of the University findings and possible actions within seven days.
  • University Campus Presidents who receive a sexual harassment complaint should carefully investigate the matter, questioning all employees (or students as appropriate) who may have knowledge of either the incident in question or similar problems. Both the complaint and the investigative steps and findings should be documented as thoroughly as possible. As much as possible, confidentiality will be maintained with respect to a sexual harassment complaint and only those who need to know about such a complaint will be advised of its existence. In the interest of being able to investigate the complaint in an unbiased atmosphere as possible, the person filing the complaint and the accused person shall not discuss the matter with Herzing students or Herzing personnel not involved in the incident other than the staff person doing the investigation.
  • Employees or students who are dissatisfied with the University Campus President’s resolution of a sexual harassment complaint may file a complaint with the President of the Herzing University system. No employee will be subject to any form of retaliation or discipline for pursuing a sexual harassment complaint.

Procedures to be Followed when Reporting Offenses

  1. When an alleged sex offense occurs at the University or the accused is a student or employee of the University, students or employees of the University must report such alleged sex offenses directly to the University Campus President, or if the alleged offense involves a University Campus President, directly to the President of the Herzing University system.
  2. The University Campus President, upon request of the alleged victim, will notify law enforcement officials.
  3. The University Campus President will refer the alleged victim to appropriate counseling services, depending upon the nature of the offense.
  4. The University Campus President will carefully investigate the matter, questioning all employees or students who may have knowledge of the incident.  Both the complaint and the investigative steps will be documented as thoroughly as possible. As much as possible, confidentiality will be maintained with respect to the sex offense complaint and only those who need to know about such an incident will know of its existence.

Sanctions for Sex Offences

Aside from criminal penalties that employees or students may be subjected to for sex offenses, the University may take action based upon its own investigation of alleged sex offenses, and based upon the conclusion of its investigation may do one of the following to an alleged offender:

  • Suspension for a period of time. In the event of an employee, the suspension may be with or without pay.
  • Termination.
  • Other disciplinary action.

Available Options in Living and Academic Arrangements

The University maintains no housing for either employees or students. Consequently, any change in living arrangements which would be desired by an alleged sex offense victim must be the responsibility of that individual. However, the University will assist students who are seeking alternate housing by providing recommendations or a source of appropriate housing recommendations.

An alleged victim will have an opportunity to request assistance in changing their academic situation. Possible alternatives include:

  • Changing instructors.
  • Changing to a different academic schedule if available.
  • Withdrawal.

Disclosures to Alleged Victims

Herzing University will, upon written request, disclose to the alleged victim of a crime of violence, or a non-forcible sex offense, the results of any disciplinary hearing conducted by the college against the student who is the alleged perpetrator of the crime or offense. If the alleged victim is deceased as a result of the crime or offense, Herzing University will provide the results of the disciplinary hearing to the victim’s next of kin, if so requested.

Information on Crime Statistics Preparation and Reporting
The University prepares this report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. The procedures for preparing the annual disclosure of crime statistics include reporting statistics obtained from the local police departments and non-police officials at each campus (Campus Presidents and Academic Deans). For statistical purposes, crime statistics reported to any of these sources are recorded in the calendar year the crime was reported. All of the statistics are gathered, complied and reported to Herzing University and posted on the Herzing University website.

Each year, an e-mail notification that provides the web site to access this report is sent to all enrolled students. Faculty and staff receive similar notification emails. Copies of the report may also be obtained from the campus. All prospective employees may obtain a copy from Human Resources.
