Campus Emergency Procedures

Suspicious Person/Object and Criminal Activity

Suspicious Person

Please be vigilant on campus, and report anything that you perceive to be out of the ordinary. Campus Security would rather investigate and inconvenience someone, than not get a call and someone gets hurt. If something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t.

Students, Faculty, and Staff Responsibilities

  • Do not physically confront the person. Get a mental image of the person, focus on basic description details, and anything that might stand out for identification purposes (hair/eye/skin color, height/weight, tattoos/scars/birthmarks, etc)
  • Do not let anyone into a locked building or an office.
  • If the individual is inside, do not block the person’s access to an exit.
  • Call 911 from a campus phone or dial 402-375-7216 to access Wayne State College Campus Security Department. Provide as much information as possible about the person and their direction of travel.

Suspicious Object

The object could be mail, a package, a duffel bag, or unattended briefcase, for example. Anything that may appear out of the ordinary that you determine to be out of place, AND no other explanation for its location.

Students, Faculty, and Staff Responsibilities

  • Do not touch or disturb the object.
  • Call 911 from a campus phone to access Wayne Police or Wayne State College Campus Security Department or dial (402)375-7216 from all other phones.
  • Notify your supervisor, faculty or staff member immediately.
  • Be prepared to evacuate.

Criminal Activity and Civil Unrest

Wayne State College Campus Security Department’s initial response to criminal activity and civil disorder will be directed toward protecting life and property. Wayne State College Campus Security will be to identify the incident, isolate the area where the incident is occurring and coordinate actions with assisting law enforcement agencies.
