Campus Safety and Security

What you need to know to ensure your safety while at SFCC

Emergency situations at any time--immediately call 911 from any phone

  • If calling from a campus phone you may dial 911 or 9911. Calling from a campus phone ensures that the location information is displayed for the 911 dispatcher; however, use any phone that is readily available to call for help. Tell the dispatcher what building you are in and the room number—not just the address of the campus.
  • Public phones that can be used for emergency communications are located in these areas:
    • Hopkins –north entrance
    • Fielding/Heckart--connecting hallway
    • Yeater—off main lobby near TRiO Office
    • Stauffacher—across from north theatre entrance
    • Davis MPC— two phones--southeast corner on both upper and lower levels
  • Once the 911 call is complete, notify campus safety and security by calling ext. 7110 from a campus phone during the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or (660) 596-7110 from other phones. After 5 p.m., call (660) 619-6019 to report the incident.

Non-emergency situations--call ext. 7110 from campus phones or (660) 596-7110 or e-mail safety@sfccmo.edu. Here are some examples of non-emergency situations:

  • You notice something that could create a safety or security concern such as lights that are not working, areas that need more lighting, exit and emergency lights that are not working, downed electrical lines, objects obstructing walkways, driveways, etc.
  • You observe that a student, employee, or visitor is struggling with behavioral issues that could create a safety concern. People who are considering violence often reveal their intentions prior to the event. This may be done through Facebook or other social network postings, disturbing writings, conversations, changes in behavior, etc. Report any concerns by e-mailing the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) at success@sfccmo.edu.  The team will research and evaluate each case and take the appropriate action.
  • You have an idea or suggestion that could improve campus safety.
  • You have property that has been stolen or damaged.
