Bomb Threats


All threats to the campus community are to be taken seriously. If you receive a telephone call informing you that a bomb has been placed on campus, do the following:

  • Remain calm and refer to the following checklist to record information the caller provides to help determine the seriousness of the threat and possibly identify the caller.
  • Keep the caller on the line as long as possible to attempt to gather as much information as possible.
  • Call the JCCC Campus Police Department at ext. 4111 or 913-469-2500 immediately for further assistance.
  • If the bomb threat was left on your voicemail, do not erase it.

Remember, the decision of whether or not to evacuate a work area or building will be determined by the JCCC Campus Police Department and the administration after a thorough evaluation of the information available. This decision will be communicated quickly to personnel.

If evacuation is called for, do not use cellphones or radios within 300 feet of the area.

Check for but do not disturb unusual objects as you leave a classroom or an office. Report any unusual objects to the JCCC Campus Police Department.
