Alma College strives to provide a safe learning environment and educate our community about crime prevention.
An integral component of that effort is our Campus Safety and Security Office, located in Tyler-Van Dusen.
The office is open 24/7, 365 days a year, and staffed with trained personnel from STT Security, a nationwide security organization. The campus phone exchange is x7777, or (989) 463-7777. Campus Safety and Security can also be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Campus Safety and Security personnel do not have law enforcement authority; however, they work closely with local and state law enforcement agencies, which are responsible for investigating alleged crimes on campus. Students are encouraged to report all crimes accurately and promptly to Campus Safety and Security, who will notify local law enforcement agencies. Students are also encouraged to dial 911 directly in case of life-threatening emergencies.
Alma College works closely with the Alma Public Safety Department. The APSD has agreed to provide an established relationship with the college by appointing a full-time officer liaison to the college. Our officer liaison meets regularly with STT as well as the campus safety and security committee.
Campus Safety and Security officers work closely with Housing and Residence Life officials and the Alma Public Safety Department to:
- Conduct daily patrols of all campus property,
- Respond to fire alarms and burglar alarms,
- Maintain a central “lost and found” repository,
- Enforce parking policies and traffic regulations,
- Conduct parking enforcement with designated personnel from Facilities & Service Management,
- Handle all ticket appeals and
- Provide additional security for special events on campus.
