Campus safety

Facilities and parking lots of CCS’s two major campuses are routinely patrolled 24 hours a day, seven days a week by Campus Security and contracted security services. Limited emergency assistance is available. After hours, many facilities are monitored electronically.
Facilities and security staff have authority to request identification. In addition, CCS security staff have limited police authority, granted by the City of Spokane Police Department, to stop, detain, arrest and investigate certain crimes. CCS has developed processes with local and regional police agencies to exchange relevant information and intelligence, and to affect prompt and effective assistance by local police.
Office of Campus Safety personnel will ensure every CCS building undergoes a safety and security inspection, using the OCS Building Security Survey form, at least once every two years. Once the inspection is completed, it will be documented and filed in the security office. The inspection report shall note the listed deficiencies, the date the inspection was sent to the appropriate building administrator and also include a scanned version of the survey as an attachment.
When completing the survey, Office of Campus Safety personnel shall be inherently critical of the safety and security characteristics of the building. Any condition determined critical to safety/security will be submitted as a corrective maintenance work order to the Department of Facilities. Such work orders will be prioritized per Administrative Procedure 6.00.01-C.
