Members of the campus security force are conservators of the peace. They seek to protect life and property, prevent anti-social conduct, and preserve a secure campus environment. They work with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.
Lake Michigan College security is staffed by contracted security guards supervised by certified security officers. The entire security function is supervised by the Executive Director of Facilities Management, the Director of Public Safety/Evening Administrator, or Facilities personnel.
Annually and when needed, the College reviews, revises, or develops rules and regulations on access and security of campus facilities. Furthermore, the Executive Director of Facilities Management periodically inspects the lighting, landscaping, and the College’s physical plant (doors, locks, etc.) to determine what improvements need to be made for maximum security.
Security officers and Facilities Management staff members respond to a variety of requests and regularly patrol the campus parking lots and buildings. Along with Facilities Management and Student Services, the security officers are responsible for the enforcement of College policies and regulations. The College staff also works closely with local police and fire departments when criminal or safety incidents occur by investigating incidents and identifying precautions for the future.
