Campus Safety and Security

Message from the Director

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the website of Jefferson Community and Technical College Department of Campus Safety and Security.  We’re glad you’ve taken the time to visit us, and to learn more about what it is we do and what we aspire to.  This website provides an overview of some of the many services we offer to those studying, working and visiting Jefferson’s campus.  At Jefferson Campus Safety and Security, our mission is to enhance the quality of life, safety and security of our community.  We strive each and every day to earn the trust, confidence and respect of each and every one of our community members. 

Jefferson Community & Technical College takes the safety and security of our students, employees and visitors seriously and is committed to providing the Jefferson community with a safe and secure campus environment.  Although reported crime at Jefferson is low, it is important for students, faculty, staff and visitors to remember we are located in an urban setting and therefore we may share some of the issues that exist in any city.   In partnership with the community and local law enforcement, we work to prevent crime and solve problems that affect students, faculty and staff.  Preserving the safety at Jefferson requires the continued active support and involvement of the entire college community.  You can help by being aware of your surroundings and personal safety, and reporting suspicious situations to campus safety security officers. 

If you would like to share your thoughts on how we can make you feel safer, please feel free to share with us opportunities that you’d like to see us get involved with.   Working together is always better, as it increases communication and improves relationships, both of which are so incredibly important, especially during these difficult times. Thank you in advance for your willingness to take part in our commitment to making Jefferson a safe space for everyone.

Yours in partnership,
Gary W. Dryden
