Northwest Louisiana Technical College is committed to having a safe and secure campus. Policies have been adopted at each of the Northwest LTC campuses to promote a safe and secure learning environment. Northwest LTC campuses rely on local law enforcement agencies in cases of emergency. In the event of an emergency, a faculty or staff member will immediately notify campus administration or security. In the event that students, faculty, or staff members witness or discover a criminal/illegal activity, they should first notify the administration, who will then contact local law enforcement authorities. A report will be written and maintained on file. Records shall also be maintained of any illegal acts which occur during any off-campus school-sponsored activities.
Northwest LTC campuses are drug-free workplaces and offer drug and alcohol counseling information to students and staff. The College maintains a Safety Manual and an Emergency Preparedness Plan. Each employee and student at Northwest LTC receives a written copy of the college Safety Rules which are also posted at each campus location. These rules are enforced by the instructor and, if necessary, the Campus Dean. In addition to general safety rules, each department or shop has rules pertaining to that area which are frequently discussed in classes and in safety meetings. The College also engages in monthly reviews to promote safety and utilizes a Safety/Housekeeping Inspection Checklist
Northwest Louisiana Technical College will make every effort to insure the safety of faculty, staff, students and facilities. General emergency procedures are outlined in this Emergency Preparedness Plan to address methods of handling emergencies such as accidents and illnesses; fires; bomb threats; severe weather; hazardous waste/chemicals; and campus disturbances/domestic violence.
