The Campus Safety Department will patrol the campus for the purpose of enforcing NHTI policies, providing general aid and assistance and crime prevention. Vehicles parked in violation of the Parking Policy may be ticketed, booted or towed.
Vehicles may be secured (Booted) with the DENVER BOOT. All fines relating to the Booted vehicle must be paid before the DENVER BOOT will be removed. In addition, a $25.00 "Boot charge" will be added and must also be paid before the DENVER BOOT will be removed. The Campus Safety Department will place an orange sticker on the driver's side window of any Booted vehicle, warning the driver not to move the vehicle.
It is not the responsibility of the NHTI Campus Safety Department to remove this sticker. Also NHTI is not responsible for damage done to any vehicle which is moved while secured with the DENVER BOOT, or by someone other than authorized personnel attempting to remove the DENVER BOOT.
NHTI Campus Safety Department reserves the right to secure a vehicle with the DENVER BOOT based upon circumstances, regardless of the number of previous violations.
