Litter Getters

Traffic was heavy on Victory Boulevard at the intersection of 134 through the intersection of Victory and Carey Chapel Road back in July. Drivers beware because those people beautifying that stretch of roads were employees of ECPI University and Medical Careers Institute in Newport News, Virginia.

Two groups of about thirty people cleaned debris covering just a little more than a mile. The crew is hoping to conduct a few more clean-ups before the end of the year.

Manassas Uses a Scenario Straight from the Headlines for Discovery Day

The idea for a creative Discovery Day came from headlines from across the country: bank tellers stealing customer’s information and internal employees’ granting access for thievery. There seems to be enough material for a Hollywood movie or a great way for guests of ECPI University and MCI in Manassas, Virginia, to witness the skills learned upon enrollment in one of the university’s programs.

Guests to the campus on April 16 were briefed on the back-ground of the situation in the form of a video and a newspaper article. The scenario played out like this:

Two suspects were taken into custody from a bank headquarters. After entering the building with a valid security code, the suspects allegedly proceeded to the company’s intelligence center where silent alarms were activated. The mail room supervisor at the headquarters reportedly used her access information to get into the building. The second suspect, a male, is currently being treated for a heart attack. After the suspects were detained, he began experiencing chest pain and was taken to the hospital. ADT security systems received the trespassing alert; police were notified immediately. Upon arrival, police officers found the two suspects in the intelligence center. In a panic, the female attempted to flee the building but was brought into custody within moments. The male did not resist arrest. While police are unsure of the exact motive, the two suspects appear to have stolen account and demographic information from 2,000+ bank customers. The bank’s security team and local authorities are currently assessing their security breach.
