Reporting of Crimes and other Incidents
Students, faculty, staff, and guests are strongly encouraged to make timely and accurate reports of all criminal incidents to the CBS Associate Dean/or the Prince George's County Police Department. Reports of criminal incidents will be included in the daily crime log. The accurate and timely reporting of crimes will aid in the issuing timely warnings of potentially serious threats to the campus community and in maintaining accurate campus crime statistics.
To report a crime whether it occurred on or off campus, contact the CBS Associate Dean at 301-552-1400 ext 5800 during business hours or 301-366-3105 at any other time. In an emergency situation, call 9-1-1. Crimes may also be reported to the following individuals:
Confidential & Anonymous Reporting
If you are the victim of a crime or a witness to a crime and do not want to pursue disciplinary action within the CBS judicial system or the criminal justice system, you may still want to consider making a confidential report. With your permission, the campus security authorities listed above can file a report on the details of the crime without revealing your identity. Incidents reported in this manner will be counted and disclosed in the CBS annual crime statistics survey. Such reports will help the Office of Safety and Security keep an accurate survey of campus crime and to issue necessary timely warnings to the staff and student body. Confidential crime reports cannot be made to the Prince George’s County Police Department. Crimes may be reported anonymously by calling the CBS Associate Dean at 301-552-1400 ext. 5800 or by filling out a form online.
Campus Pastoral Counselors and Campus Professional Counselors, when acting as such are not considered to be a campus security authority and are not required to report crimes for inclusion in the annual disclosure of crime statistics. As a matter of policy, they are encouraged, if and when they deem it appropriate, to inform persons being counseled of the procedures to report crimes on a voluntary basis for inclusion into the annual crime statistics.
Capital Bible Seminary has established policies and regulations concerning the campus community. These policies and regulations found in the Community Guidelines are enacted to minimize and prevent losses due to criminal activity, damage to the institution and personal property, and serious injury to members of the campus community.

Alcohol and Drug Policy
CBS seeks to be a drug/alcohol-free campus, and as such seeks to prevent the use and abuse of chemical substances. Students, staff, and faculty are expected to abstain from all forms of the use of tobacco, drinking of alcohol (except where prescribed by a physician or taken as part of the Lord's supper), or the use of drugs on the campus of CBS. Possessing, buying, selling, and/or manufacturing of these substances are also prohibited. CBS will not accept the risk or the performance problems which drug or alcohol abuse can create. Anyone who violates this policy will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal. The Administration reserves the right to notify parents of students involved in illegal activities (underage drinking, gambling, etc.).
The possession, sale manufacture or distribution of any controlled substance is illegal under both state and federal laws. It is also illegal to sell, furnish or provide alcohol to a person under the age of 21; the possession of alcohol by anyone under 21 years of age is illegal. Those in violation of such laws will be subject to criminal prosecution.
