The KLETC Yoder Campus Is Now Tobacco Free

Smoking, including the use of electronic cigarettes or any future product that simulates or approximates tobacco use or smoking, and tobacco use will not be permitted on the KLETC Yoder campus, KU Lawrence or Edwards campuses, or all other University of Kansas sites reporting to the Lawrence campus.

The University of Kansas, of which KLETC is a reporting Unit, is strongly committed to supporting individuals to become tobacco free to encourage a respectful, healthier, and more productive learning/living environment for all members of our campus community. KU has announced that assistance for faculty and staff to overcome tobacco or nicotine use or addiction is being made available through the State of Kansas Employee Health Plan’s Tobacco Cessation Program to those eligible for that program. Assistance to anyone who wants to quit tobaccos use is available through the KanQuit program at http://www.kanquit.org/

The success of the new Tobacco Free policy relies on the thoughtfulness, consideration, and cooperation of each individual that works on, attends classes or visits the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center campus. This policy will not be applicable to tobacco use in personal vehicles.
