Atlantic Cape Community College’s Security Department has as its primary responsibility the safety and security of students, visitors and faculty/staff at all Atlantic Cape locations. All locations are staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Campus security guards are primarily responsible for regulating the flow of traffic on the college’s campuses, enforcing parking regulations and providing building security. These uniformed security guards are certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first aid. Trained radio dispatchers provide immediate radio communication with guards on patrol.
Since it is a public institution, most Atlantic Cape facilities are open to members of the community, with varied levels of access. Lighting in all buildings and public areas is inspected and maintained daily. Guards regularly patrol all buildings and parking lots.
The college maintains no on-campus housing.
The key to crime prevention is awareness; something the college fosters through educational programs.
As part of its ongoing program to provide information on safety issues, the Security Department in conjunction with the Dean of Students’ office presents a series of workshops and lectures that are open to all members of the college community. These include programs on self-protection, sexual assault awareness, rape prevention, safety awareness, drug and alcohol abuse and AIDS.
All members of the college community can assist in maintaining a safe environment to stay alert, reporting any suspicious activities to Security and taking steps to avoid becoming the victim of a crime including:
- keep valuables out of sight
- walk in groups at night
- avoid deserted hallways or buildings
