Department of Campus Safety and Security
|CRIME ALERT BULLETIN|
|There are no alerts at this time.|
The continuing emphasis of the safety and security program on campus is the responsibility of everyone in this community to help ensure their own safety and that of others by taking reasonable precautions and using a common sense approach to personal security.
The campus safety and security department promotes: a safe campus environment, detection of fire and safety hazards, regulations and enforcement of parking and traffic on campus, coordination of local police support, and the implementation of emergency/alert plans.
The security staff is directed by the Director of Campus Safety and Security. A professionally trained director provides leadership to full and part-time supervisory staff and part-time student guards and dispatchers. Training for all full and part-time security officers includes state certification, CPR/AED certification and on the job training.
Trinity campus safety officers are not sworn police officers and do not possess arrest powers but are authorized to issue parking and traffic tickets which may be billed to the financial accounts of students. The campus safety department maintains a close professional working relationship with local law enforcement agencies which are the primary agencies responsible for the investigation of campus crimes, and has Memorandums of Understanding regarding the investigation of criminal incidents.
Campus Safety and Security provides services 24 hours a day, seven days a week on campus. Additional information concerning the department of safety and security, crime prevention and personal safety information, parking regulations, and vehicle registration information can be found this site.
The cooperation and involvement of students themselves in a campus safety program is absolutely necessary. Students must assume responsibility for their own personal belongings and safety by taking simple, common sense precautions such as locking their doors in the residence hall, being aware of their surroundings when a pedestrian on campus, not propping open exterior doors of residence halls, and not disseminating personal information to others.
Help for Crime Victims
Trinity Christian College Campus Safety & Security assists victims of crime by acting as a liaison with local police agencies, arranging transportation for medical attention, and offering free counseling on campus through the Cooper Center located in the Molenhouse Student Center.
Despite the relatively low crime rate in its surrounding communities, Trinity Christian College regards the safety and welfare of its students, faculty and staff as one of its highest concerns. The College has implemented many policies and programs to maintain and increase campus security, but individuals are reminded that they must assume responsibility for their own safety, that of others, and the protection of property. Each member of the College community is encouraged to report all emergencies and criminal activity promptly to the Department of Campus Safety and Security.
