Safety & Accident Reporting

Accidents, criminal actions, emergencies, and suspicious persons should be reported to the Coastal Security Services Department as soon as possible. Information may be conveyed by

  • accessing the Security Services via the emergency call boxes located in buildings and/or emergency phones located in all elevators on campus
  • phoning the 24-hour access number for Security Services at (910) 938-6290 (or extension 6290 if using a campus phone);
  • reporting directly to any security officer on patrol and;
  • visiting the Security Services office located inside the cafeteria of the Student Center or outside at the Security Guard House, located adjacent to the A. D. Guy Business Technology Building.

Reporting of campus incidents does not in any way commit an individual to taking legal action; however, such reports may help law enforcement agencies reduce further incidents within the campus community. Coastal Carolina Community College recognizes the Security Services Department as the lead organization to which individuals should report non-criminal and criminal incidents. If an individual is unable to establish contact with the Security Services Department (regardless of reason), he or she may contact one of the following for assistance.

Title Telephone Number
Chief of Security (910) 938-6141
Director of Physical Plant and Auxiliary Services (910) 938-6343
Division Chair for Student Services (910) 938-6236
Executive Vice President (910) 938-6788
Personnel Officer (910) 938-6145

 

When you report an incident to the Security Services Department, a security officer will meet with you, listen to what happened, and take a detailed report. If an investigation is warranted, or one desires to have law enforcement called, the Jacksonville Department of Public Safety will be called to continue the investigation. If a suspect is found and you decide to press charges, the Jacksonville Department of Public Safety will file charges against the suspect.

If you are uncomfortable reporting an incident to the Security Services Department, we would like to encourage you to contact a College counselor, administrator, or faculty member to help ensure the most accurate accounting of criminal, discipline, and/or emergency incidents on or around campus. Call (910) 938-6290 or extension 6290 (if using a phone on campus), locate an emergency call box (push button) system in any campus building for Security Services, or contact a College counselor, administrator, or faculty member.
