KALAMAZOO COLLEGE CAMPUS SECURITY and FIRE SAFETYOCTOBER 1, 2018 ANNUAL REPORTKeeping Our Campus Safe and SecureThis report includes statistics for the previous three years (2017, 2016, and 2015) concerning crimes that occurred on-campus and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. This document is prepared for current and prospective students, their families and employees in compliance with the Jeanne Clery disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.Kalamazoo College operates its own non-deputized campus safety program. Campus Safety personnel therefore have no arrest powers. Campus Safety personnel, under the direction of Tim Young, Director of Campus Safety, regularly patrol the campus 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Campus Safety will respond to all requests for service and attend to situations around the campus that affect the security of residents and visitors.The cooperation and involvement of students themselves in a campus safety program is absolutely necessary. Students 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-male or female-may feel more comfortable using the College security escort service when returning to the residence halls late at night. Room doors should be locked at night and when the room is unoccupied. Strangers should never be allowed into residence halls. Students with cars must park them in their assigned area and keep vehicles locked at all times. Valuables should be locked in the trunk. Each student is expected to take the necessary precautions to avoid being victimized. The College administration has increased exterior lighting, added outdoors emergency phones, added video surveillance cameras, and trimmed shrubbery to make our environment safer. Although these improvements and the presence of security patrols greatly increase campus security, safety must always be of personal concern to members of the College community. The campus safety department requests that criminal acts and unusual or suspicious activity that occurs on college property be reported immediately to 269-337-7321. The campus safety department has established a close working relationship with Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety, Michigan State Police, Western Michigan University Police Department, and Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office. Campus Safety conducts most of the preliminary investigations of nonviolent-type criminal offenses. These criminal offenses are forwarded to the local public safety department for further action. The college has a written agreement with Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety regarding investigationsof criminal complaints and general response to the campus community. The College has no off-campus housing or student organizations to monitor.
