During orientation students are informed of services offered by the Community College Police Department through a brochure and presentations which outline ways to maintain personal safety. Students are advised to visit the College Police website to learn about crime on-campus and in surrounding neighborhoods The website also displays informational videos such as ‘Run, Hide, Fight’, designed by Homeland Security in response to Active Shooter situations. Similar information is presented to new employees and annually during professional development trainings. Crime Prevention notices are posted periodically and when necessary we provide information to the College community regarding the protection of personal property and how to maintain personal safety on campus.
Periodically during the academic year, the CCRI Police, in cooperation with other College organizations and departments, present notices or awareness on the community’s safety.
A common theme of all awareness and crime prevention programs is to encourage students and employees to be aware of their responsibility for their own security and the security of others.
In addition to information being disseminated to students and employees through crime notices, we provide security alert posters, displays, and articles and advertisements in college and student publications. When an alert need to be posted promptly, information is released to the College community through security alerts throughout the campus and disseminated through the College's electronic mail system or instant messaging system.
Throughout the year the police department prepares and distributes through the appropriate media crime prevention and personal safety hints. These publications are available to all members of the college community. To assist police in keeping the campus crime-free we recommend the following to all members of the college community.
For additional crime prevention issues please contact your local Campus Police Office.
