Jamestown Community College is committed to assisting all members of our community in providing for their safety and security. In accordance with the Jeanne Clery Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act, the executive director of human resources and college-wide safety is providing the annual Security Reports for both the Jamestown and Cattaraugus County campuses.

Our crime statistics have also been published at the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Postsecondary Education. There, you may view crime statistics from all campuses. The director of human resources and college-wide safety will provide upon request all campus crime statistics as reported to the United States Department of Education. 

We are required to prepare and post an Annual Security and Fire Safety Report for the Jamestown Campus location.  We are also required to prepare and post an Annual Security Report for the Cattaraugus County Campus.  The report includes information about our safety and security practices as well as crime and fire statistics. Jamestown Community College’s annual security and fire report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings owned or controlled by Jamestown Community College; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.

The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, reporting of crimes, sexual assault, and other matters. This information is required by law and is provided by the director of human resources and college-wide safety. You can obtain a copy of this report by contacting the director of human resources and college-wide safety at 716.338.1035. Printed copies of the report are also available at:

Visitors On Campus

Visitors are welcome on campus. However, 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. If students bring their children on campus, the children must remain under the direct supervision of their parents or guardians. Any unsupervised or disruptive children will be detained by a college representative. The child’s parents will be contacted immediately and the child may be asked to leave the campus.
