Security at Dodge City Community College is a shared responsibility between the administration, students, campus community, and local law enforcement agencies. While the college takes actions to help increase security, students and visitors must also contribute to their own safety by following rules, using common sense, avoiding dangerous situations, and immediately reporting suspicious or threatening activity.

Most security officers at Dodge City Community College are active law enforcement officers, which means they are authorized to carry firearms and have authority to arrest anyone suspected of violating the law. Dodge City Community College reports criminal activity to local agencies through the Student Services office.

Security Notifications

If it is determined that a specific danger to the campus community, or specific segments of the campus community exists, an appropriate notification to the community will be made. This determination will be jointly made by the campus security director, the dean of student services and/or the vice president of student and community services in consultation with the college’s attorney.
