Safety and Security at TCC
The responsibility of TCC's Safety and Security Committee is to ensure that the College is prepared to respond to, recover from and mitigate against the effects of a wide variety of emergencies that could adversely affect the health, safety and general welfare of its students, faculty, staff and visitors.
The Safety and Security Committee, in a joint effort with TCC's Police Department, has developed an Emergency Management Plan (EMP) that provides the structure and guidance for the development of a hierarchy of programs for preparation, mitigation, planning and recovery from emergencies, both natural and man-made. The EMP serves as the official emergency operations plan of TCC and applies directly to all persons and entities associated with TCC, including its students, faculty, staff, employees, contractors and other support entities.
The EMP applies to all service centers, facilities and programs administered by TCC, regardless of location or purpose. Individual service centers, facilities and programs are highly encouraged to develop local procedures and guidelines, consistent with the content of this plan.
Additionally, TCC's Campus Police Department provides a number of services to students, faculty, staff and visitors. For assistance, call (850) 201-6100.
