Campus Security

Campus Security has staff on duty 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Campus Security is dedicated to serving the College community by striving to provide a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors. Specific elements of the Campus Security mission include accident investigations, incidents, crime investigation, crime prevention, vehicle assists, parking and traffic enforcement, and emergency training and response.

Rave Mobile Safety

As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance safety and security on all campuses, LCCC sends emergency notifications to students using Rave Mobile Safety. Rave allows us to send emergency text messages and emails through the Rave Alert software. 

Students and staff can download Rave’s app, Rave Guardian, from the App Store or Google Play for additional features. The app provides the ability to contact Campus Security through a phone via voice or text capability.  Students without a mobile device will receive a notification at their LCCC student email address. 

No action is required by students to receive alerts. We use the contact information currently on file to send these emergency notifications.
