Dear Instructor: Reminder

NETC regulations (44 C.F.R. Part 15 and Policy 119-22, VII.A.8 and VII.A.10) prohibit personal possession of alcohol or firearms on campus. If you have alcohol and/or firearms in your possession, you must declare them upon entering campus at the Main Gate. No alcohol can be brought onto campus. Firearms cannot be carried on campus. NETC Security will conduct a search of your vehicle and/or luggage. If Officers discover undeclared alcohol or firearms, you will be denied access to campus, you will not be admitted to your class for the week, your travel stipend will be denied, and your sponsoring organization will be notified.

The following information is in the NETC Welcome Packet: FIREARMS: prohibited on campus! Due to heightened security requirements, please understand that security and law enforcement personnel may search you, your vehicle or your luggage. Maryland law is very narrow in its definition of law enforcement officers who may carry firearms. For your own protection, and to expedite your processing into the NETC, do not bring weapons of any kind to campus. Weapons include knives with blades longer than 3 inches, machetes, bow and arrows, ammunition, rifles, shotguns, pistols, etc. Sworn/Commissioned and State Peace Officer Standards, and Training-Certified Officers, Federal Officers, or local officers with concurrent jurisdiction who require a firearm for the performance of required official duties must obtain an exception from the NETC Director of Management, Operations and Support Services prior to arrival on campus. If you arrive at NETC with weapons of any kind without prior approval, your entry to campus will be delayed significantly.

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES: Alcohol is not allowed on-site and will be confiscated. Consumption of alcoholic beverages is limited to the Command Post Pub (On Campus Licensed Bar) and the Log Cabin (consumption supervised by on campus bar personnel) at NETC.
