Campus Security Guidelines

In 2007, the Major Cities Chiefs (MCC) approached the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) with a new and bold idea to address the rising violence on campus—increase the coordination between local and campus law enforcement to better protect students. With the safety and security of 15 million college and university students in America at stake, the need to act was clear. MCC and BJA developed the Campus Security Guidelines in order to make a genuine difference in how law enforcement prevents, prepares, responds to and recovers from critical incidents on campus. The Guidelines are real operational policies, developed by the experts—local and campus law enforcement—that can be implemented across the nation. We all agree that coordination among law enforcement agencies is complicated, but the unique challenges in the campus environment make coordination even more important. To secure the safety of students and faculty on college campuses, local law enforcement must partner with campus public safety departments through training and increased communications. Campus Security Guidelines empower local and campus law enforcement to do just that. We commend the hard work, strong commitment and effort required to develop the Guidelines. Now is the time to act to protect America’s campuses. MCC and BJA are proud to present to you, Campus Security Guidelines: Recommended Policies for Local and Campus Law Enforcement Agencies.
