Statement Addressing Campus Law Enforcement
For Institutions Whose Police Do Not Have Arrest Authority
Shawnee Community College Campus Security has the authority to ask persons for identification and to determine whether individuals have lawful business at Shawnee Community College. Shawnee Community College Campus Security officers have the authority to issue parking tickets, which are billed to financial accounts of students, faculty, and staff. Security officers do not possess arrest power.
Criminal incidents are referred to the local police who have jurisdiction on the campus. The Shawnee Community College Campus Security maintains a highly professional working relationship with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office and Illinois State Police. When extension centers are involved, personnel will contact local law enforcement.
All crime victims and witnesses are strongly encouraged to immediately report the crime to the campus security office and the appropriate police agency. Prompt reporting will assure timely warning notices on-campus and timely disclosure of crime statistics.
