Campus Safety and Security at JCC »

Jamestown Community College is committed to assisting all members of our community in providing for their safety and security as they learn, work, and take advantage of the opportunities our campuses have to offer.

Students' and Employees' Responsibilities

The cooperation and involvement of students and employees in a campus safety program is absolutely necessary. Students and employees must assume responsibility for their own personal safety and the security of their personal belongings by taking simple, common sense precautions. For example, although the campus is well-lighted, any student or employee, male or female, may feel more comfortable walking with a friend or contacting a member of the buildings and grounds department for an escort to their cars at night. Valuables should not be left where they can be seen in the vehicle, but should be locked in the trunk. Bicycles should be left in designated areas and locked. Students and employees should report any suspicious activity or unusual incident or individuals whom they feel do not belong on campus to the campus safety and security director as soon as possible.

Visitors on Campus

Visitors are welcome on campus and they are expected to abide by the same rules that apply to students. Action, including ejection from campus, may be taken against any and all persons who are present in or on college owned or used facilities for an improper purpose or purpose which, in the judgment of the college representative, is improper or interferes with or obstructs the functioning of the college or the normal processes or activities of the college. Children on campus must remain under the direct supervision of their parents or guardians. Any unsupervised or disruptive children may be detained by a college representative. The child’s parents will be contacted immediately and the child may be asked to leave the campus.

Incident Reporting

JCC’s incident reporting system provides a means for anyone who has witnessed, or knows about, a crime committed on campus to anonymously report incidents. The system provides users an electronic option to report a wide variety of concerns or issues including crime, safety, and security issues. Once a report is submitted it is forwarded to the appropriate office for follow-up.

Crimes in progress or emergencies should be reported to 911. Safety and security incidents as well as past-tense crimes can be reported online or in person during business hours directly to the campus safety and security director by calling 716.338.1015 or 716.490.0115. During evenings and weekends, incidents should be reported to the buildings and grounds department (Jamestown Campus, 716.490.0415; North County Center, 716.490.0477; and Cattaraugus County Campus, 716.490.0416).
