Dade Institute of Technology does not have a campus security or police force. We report all crimes directly to the proper civil authority. The Owner/Director/or a staff member will be responsible to contact any authority such as local or state police, fire or medical personnel that might be required. Any breach of security, such as assault, robbery, sale of controlled substances, etc. will be reported to the local police and full prosecution will follow if needed. All students and staff are to report any breach of school security such as theft, assault, or misconduct to the Owner/Director or staff member of the school as soon as possible after the occurrence of the act. The Owner/Director or Instructor of the School will discuss during orientation class the importance of the students to always guard against theft of personal property as well as the theft or misuse of school property and to report all such activities to the Director or staff person as soon as possible.
