Authorized By: Library Director
Date of Last Revision: 1-2012
Police assistance will normally be sought by library staff in the following situations:
1. When customers display irrational behavior which can be perceived as a
public disturbance or as a threat to the safety of the staff or other customers,
or may cause injury to the person herself/himself.
Examples of such behavior may include, among others, laughing
hysterically; loud, abusive violent talking; threats; reclining on the floor
in a fetal position; indecent exposure; indecent sexual advances.
2. When customers request police assistance, this may be as a result of an
accident in the street, a mugging in the park or the parking ramp, or as a
result of a suspected crime committed on the premises such as theft, or
3. When staff or customer sustain injury or experience life threatening illness,
police and/or medical assistance in the form of an ambulance may be
requested in the case of a staff or customer injury or life threatening illness.
Examples of such occurrences may include, among others, severe fall, loss
of a limb, electrical shock, heart attack, stroke, un-determined loss of
consciousness, or severe cut.
Whenever the police are called to the library either by staff or the public to
attend to a call within the library premises, the Library Director must receive a
written report, signed and dated by the staff person(s) involved with the
incident, either the same day immediately after it happens, or if in the
evening, by 8:30 AM the next day.
