  1. Campus Security Officers

Describe the extent and nature of enforcement authority of campus security authority personnel: Jefferson Community and Technical College’s Safety and Security officers do not have police powers to arrest individuals. They do, however, respond to all safety and security events on our campuses and maintain ongoing training on how to handle all emergencies on campus including medical, fire, and events in which an individual’s life or safety is threatened. Safety and Security officers carry cell phones and can immediately call 911 if an event on campus requires emergency response from local emergency agencies. Campus Safety and Security Officers also maintain daily logs of all activity, maintain a written report of all incidents on campus which are required to be reported in crime statistics, and submit daily reports for posting to the District’s website for any reportable crime. Other campus security authority personnel have the responsibility of documenting any crime they are aware of, either observed or reported to them. The campus security authority personnel immediately contact a campus Safety and Security officer on duty to respond to the situation. If it is obvious that the event requires immediate attention the campus security authority personnel would call 911 before contacting a campus safety and security officer.

Describe the working relationship of campus security authority personnel with state and local police agencies: Because the College’s safety and security officers do not have police powers, it is imperative that the officers maintain a good working relationship with local law enforcement officers, which they do. Local law enforcement officers routinely patrol the areas around our campuses and maintain contact with campus safety and security officers. Local law enforcement officers also work with the college to provide annual crime prevention surveys of the campuses. This helps the college make improvements to facilities and procedures to reduce crime.
