JCCC Campus Police Department
The Johnson County Community College Campus Police Department, located in the Carlsen Center building, provides service 24 hours a day, and is an integral part of the college’s dedication to developing and maintaining a safe and secure campus through the cooperative efforts of many college departments. The department consists of police officers, public safety officers, campus dispatchers, access control and administration. Officers patrol the campus and offer a variety of safety and security services 7 days
a week. They also function as first responders for fire, medical and campus emergencies, as they are trained in first aid, CPR and AED response.
Building Emergency Leader Program
Under the College Emergency Response Plan each college building has a designated Building Emergency Leader (BEL) and team dedicated to emergency response. The BELS and floor monitors play a critical role in the overall safety of the building occupants and in communications to all staff and students during an emergency.
The role of a Building Emergency Leader is to:
- Oversee Building Emergency Plan for their building/monitor potential threats
- Coordinate Building Emergency Team/Floor Monitor support positions
- Provide instruction and training
- Act as a communication liaison to Emergency Preparedness Manager/Campus Police
- Maintain employee floor listings/conduct semester meetings
- BELS and their team members are identified by orange and yellow vests and their orange/black grab-n-go bags. Orange = leader positions Yellow = floor monitors.
