Safety & Security
The Community College of Allegheny County consists of four main campuses and several centers and satellite sites. Each campus (Allegheny, Boyce, North and South) has a Director of Safety and Security who is also a sworn police officer as recognized by the Office of the Governor of the State of Pennsylvania and governed by the Office of the State Secretary of Education. These directors are charged with all the duties and responsibilities pertaining to campus safety and security and report to the individual campus presidents. The safety and security of the campus community (students, faculty, staff and visitors) is a priority issue at CCAC.
The majority of safety and security patrol and service is provided by a contracted guard service with on-site supervisors who work under the auspices of the campus Director of Safety and Security. The contracted guards are not police officers but do serve a vital function in the safety and security of the campus community.
Below are links that will provide you with specific information concerning some of the policies, services and practices of CCAC with respect to safety and security at our campuses, centers and sites. Additional information can be obtained from the campus Directors of Safety and Security and the Office of the College Enterprise Risk Manager.
