SAFETY AND SECURITY
The safety and security of students, faculty and staff is a College priority. CSC’s Campus Security works with other departments within the College to maintain a safe and secure environment for the more than 2500 students attending CSC’s three locations. This large campus community shares the same concerns, problems, and opportunities for crime as local communities. To deter crime and keep CSC’s campuses safe, students and staff must be aware of persons to contact in an emergency, campus support services, and crime prevention methods. The following sections outline safety and support services available at CSC.
CSC’s Campus Security officers are vested with full Cleet Certification. Officers are trained at the Council of Law Enforcement, Education, and Training and have additional training in firearms, first aid, and legal procedures. CSC’s Campus Security has an excellent relationship with city, state, and federal law enforcement agencies in its jurisdiction.
Campus Security officers are responsible for crime reports, emergencies, traffic accidents, and enforcement of laws regulating under-age drinking, the use of controlled substances, weapons, and other incidents which require police assistance.
Investigations and Crime Prevention Unit
The Investigations and Crime Prevention Unit of the Department has experienced significant success in reducing crime in the CSC campus community. Listed below are some of the steps this unit takes to keep students and staff safe.
Campus Security works with Students Health Services, Phi Theta Kappa, the Student Association, and campus staff development committees to provide safety seminars throughout the year. Recent seminars include:
What to do if….
In the event a crime is reported on campus, the Campus Security responds immediately. All reported crimes are investigated. Follow-up investigations are conducted and other law enforcement agencies are involved as necessary. Offenders are dealt with swiftly and firmly through the county court system, the City of Warner and CSC when appropriate.
Any student or staff member who sees or experiences a crime or other emergency in the CSC community should report immediately to the Campus Security. Phone numbers are displayed on the campuses. The Vice President for Student Services can also assist with contacting the Campus Security. Victim support services are available, and Campus Security works with the local police to ensure timely notice is provided to students regarding crimes reported to either police or campus security authorities and considered to represent a threat to others. The “alert” will aid in prevention of crime.
Crime Statistics for the CSC Community
When compared to colleges, universities, and local communities of similar size, CSC’s crime statistics are very low. Listed below is a three-year comparison of actual reported crime statistics by location on campus or on public property (streets, sidewalks, or parking lots adjacent to “campus”). Please note that the city police department is presently unable to synopsize crime statistics that occur on public property in the near
vicinity of campus. Instead, city police provide statistics generated from a much larger geographical area that includes a campus. This city police department will provide more realistic statistics in the future as technology improves. The following statistics reflect:
PLEASE NOTE: Crime reported to campus security authorities are not always reported to, or verified as having occurred, by Campus Security or city police. The numbers contained in this category also may duplicate crimes concurrently reported to the Campus Security or city police. City police statistics are provided by the cities of Muskogee and Warner, which have jurisdiction around many of our campuses, and are not independently verified by the College.
