PUBLIC SAFETY

A safe learning environment
Your personal actions help CCBC maintain a desirable learning and working environment. As partners in campus safety and security, students, faculty, staff and others have shared responsibilities. While CCBC works continually to ensure a safe learning environment, no college campus is a haven from crime. It’s important that all members of the campus community be security conscious and report all crimes, emergencies and suspicious persons and conditions to the Department of Public Safety offices:

Department of Public Safety
The Department of Public Safety works to create and maintain a secure campus climate and to protect personal and college assets.

Public Safety is staffed by full- and part-time uniformed security officers 24 hours a day. Each of the officers, while not commissioned, takes arrest authority from statutory and common law of Maryland. The officers patrol CCBC campuses in marked cars, on bicycles and on foot.

Officers investigate and report all crimes and incidents to college administration for action. CCBC’s security staff also works closely with the Baltimore County Police Department and will summon its assistance when needed or when requested by a victim of a crime.

The college provides timely security alerts to the college community regarding offenses that are reported to campus security authorities or local police, and which may represent a threat to students and employees, through Campus Alert, CCBC e-mail, voice mail, and text messaging.

The Department of Public Safety also monitors crime at off-campus facilities owned or controlled by the college. An administrative staff of full-time employees assists the Department of Public Safety.
