Full Annual Security Report - September 2018


Reports of criminal actions, or other emergencies occurring on campus should be reported immediately to 911 and the Vice President of Student Affairs, (Student Services) at 348-6618. All such calls/reports will be thoroughly investigated by the Vice President of Student Affairs or his/her designated representative together with the appropriate law enforcement officials as necessary. Violation of North Central Michigan College regulations, policies or conduct standards by students or employees will be administered in accordance with the appropriate disciplinary procedures. Violation of city/local ordinances and regulations by students, employees and others will be referred to the appropriate law enforcement authority for subsequent action. The Vice President of Student Affairs will maintain all records or reports of alleged offenses, associated investigations and related action taken. The College has procedures for voluntary, confidential reporting of sexual misconduct crimes, but does not encourage its professional counselors to inform students to voluntarily and confidentially report crimes for inclusion in the Annual Campus Security & Fire Safety Report. The Annual Campus Security & Fire Safety Report is prepared by the Vice President of Student Affairs with information from local law enforcement agencies and incident reports.

Reports of criminal actions or other emergencies occurring in connection with College sponsored instructional activities at its off-campus locations should be reported immediately to appropriate local police authorities by dialing 911. The College does not sponsor or recognize off-campus student organizations.

In the event that a situation arises, either on or off-campus, that, in the judgment of the President, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” will be issued. The warning will be issued through multiple communication methods, including the college website, email and emergency notification system, as soon as pertinent information is available. “Emergency notification” will be issued, using the same methods as above, immediately upon confirmation that a dangerous situation or emergency exists.



The President has appointed a Campus Security Committee to review North Central's security issues and recommend security policy adjustments to the President as necessary. The College has not found it necessary nor cost effective to maintain a separate law enforcement division or campus security department at this time and, relies upon the City of Petoskey Department of Public Safety and other local law enforcement agencies for law enforcement on the College campus and its off-campus locations. This partnership exists without an official MOU.
