Northeast Alabama Community College is committed to providing a safe and secure learning and working environment. To ensure the safety and security of the campus and its constituents, NACC established a Campus Police Office. This office allows the college to fulfill Mission Goal 10, "Provision for and maintenance of a physical plant with instructional facilities and technology which provid a safe learning environment and are suitable for all the institution's programs and services." The main objective of the NACC Campus Police is to safeguard students, personnel, property and authorized visitors; equipment, and buildings. Each officer is licensed and has full arrest powers under the State of Alabama.
In the event that a situation arises either on campus or in the immediate area of campus that in the judgment of the President constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” will be issued without delay. The warning will be issued through SchoolCast - a rapid, multiplatform (email, text, and phone) message delivery system - and/or over the college public address system. The information provided will address the status of the College and actions, if any, that need to be taken by students or employees for safety purposes.
Orientation sessions address campus security procedures and encourage students to be responsible for their own and others' safety and security. Anyone with information regarding emergency situations or criminal acts, including, but not limited to, hate crimes, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, sexual assault, homicide, rape, statutory rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, and arson, is encouraged to immediately report the matter to Campus Police.
If Campus Police are unavailable, emergency situations or criminal activity can be reported to one of the following offices, Campus Security Authorities, or to local authorities by dialing 9-1-1:
