Crime Awareness and Campus Security

The Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 requires all colleges to distribute to students and employees current policies and procedures for campus security, reporting procedures, and a summary of criminal violations in previous years.The report applies to on-campus violations only.

Oregon Coast Community College does not have an on-campus security force. If a major problem or incident should occur, the services of local law enforcement agencies will be utilized.

Oregon Coast Community College encourages students to take personal responsibility for their own safety and for the safety of others. Students are urged to keep their cars locked, to keep track of their personal belongings at all times, to park in well-lighted areas, and to walk to their parked cars with someone they know.

Individuals who are acting suspiciously or who appear to be in unauthorized areas or instances of forced entry and/or theft should be reported to the Director of Facilities, the Director of Human Resources or to the College President. After 5:00 p.m., reports should be made to TCB Security at 541-574-2828.

Weapons, illegal drugs, and/or alcohol possession on campus are prohibited. An exception to the alcohol possession rule may be made by the College President or her/his designee in specific circumstances. Law enforcement personnel while on official duty are exempt from the weapons prohibition.
