Prohibited Weapons

Policy Statement

The possession, transfer, sale, or use of weapons, dangerous instruments, or paraphernalia associated with a weapon is prohibited on Duke-owned or leased premises (even for those licensed to carry a weapon). This restriction includes, but is not limited to, parking lots, personal vehicles, Duke-sponsored events, and Duke-owned vehicles.

Possession of weapons is prohibited at all times while conducting Duke business - except as may be required as a condition of employment. Violation of this policy may result in corrective action up to and including termination. Where appropriate, Duke Police will report the transfer, sale, or use of weapons or dangerous instruments to local law enforcement authorities.
