Alcohol, Drugs and Weapons

Alcohol

The use, possession and distribution of alcoholic beverages on the Blinn campus must comply with Texas law and with college policies and rules.

The purchase, possession, consumption or transportation of an alcoholic beverage by anyone under the age of 21 is forbidden.

Violations result in criminal citations or arrest.

Drugs

The medically unsupervised use, possession, sale, manufacture or distribution of drugs classified as illegal is prohibited by state law.  Any violation on campus is vigorously investigated by the College Police.

Offenses occurring off campus are investigated by the police agency with jurisdiction.

Weapons

State law prohibits the possession, carrying or use of illegal weapons or firearms on the Blinn campus or property controlled by the college.

The only exception is for authorized law enforcement officers or other persons specifically authorized by the college or law.

Violations are prosecuted as felonies.  Student violations may also result in disciplinary action.

Crime Information and Statistics

The College Police Department makes crime reports available to the media, the public and various campus offices identifying the type, location and time of each crime reported.  The department also completes a monthly crime report available upon request.

All major crime statistics are submitted to the FBI and the Texas Department of Public Safety.  Those agencies, in turn, publish them for the news media and other interested parties.  These statistics also are reported annually by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Sexual Assault

In compliance with the Higher Education Amendments of 1992 Blinn College has published a brochure for student and employees defining sexual assault, educational programs, reporting and enforcement procedures, sanctions for the offender, victim options and support services.
