On December 17, 2013, Delta’s Board of Trustees approved changes to Board Policy BP 3570:
Smoking on Campus and the Sale and Use of Tobacco Products; and Administrative Procedure AP 3570: Smoking on Campus. These policy changes officially allow Delta College campuses to become “Smoke-Free” effective, July 14, 2014.
Delta’s previous policy, which allowed smoking only in parking lots, proved to be “problematic” says District Police Sgt. Mario Vasquez. “In addition to health concerns and secondhand smoke, we received numerous complaints from both smokers and non-smokers regarding garbage, cigarette butts, harassment and illegal activities, including smoking and selling of marijuana.”
Delta’s District Police further define the new policy:
“Smoke-Free” means the use of any tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, is prohibited everywhere on District property. This includes District vehicles, leased vehicles for college use, buildings, basements, roof tops, hallways, offices, individual offices, athletic facilities, pathways, grass areas, trees, orchards, vineyards, fields, bus stops, roadways, parking lots, and inside parked vehicles on campus.
“Smoking” means engaging in an act that generates smoke, such as possessing a lighted pipe; a lighted hookah pipe; operating an electronic cigarette; a lighted cigar; a lighted cigarette of any kind; or lighting or igniting a pipe, a hookah pipe, a cigar, or a cigarette of any kind.
