New Security Measures in Place
Contracted, uniformed security officers are now on patrol at each campus and the Urban Center to help with safety issues or concerns. Feel free to speak with them and ask for assistance when needed. In the case of a true emergency, if an officer is not immediately available dial 911 first. Then call 859-442-1700 to report the emergency to Gateway crisis management staff. In addition, all campuses are protected by surveillance cameras, and the Boone Campus has outdoor emergency call button stations for use in contacting 911. Gateway is looking into adding these call buttons at its other campuses.
To stay safe on campus, be sure to sign up for SNAP, the Safety Notification Alert Process. SNAP alerts you to on-campus emergencies by sending messages to your mobile phone or email. Although SNAP emergencies are announced over speakers at each campus, we strongly encourage all students and employees to sign up for this alert system by visiting: https://legacy.kctcs.edu/snap/. If you signed up prior to January 1, 2010, you must sign up again. SNAP is available to members of the community as well.
A copy of the Gateway Community amp; Technical College Annual Security Report is now available online. This report includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on-campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Gateway; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning sexual assault, and other matters.
Safety requires the continued active support and involvement of the entire college community. You can help by being aware of your surroundings and personal safety, and reporting situations that look suspicious. This safety video will inform you and help you prepare for potential situations, and we encourage all employees and students to watch.
