Campus Security


Kirkwood Campus Security officers patrol campus, respond to emergencies and other calls for service, conduct traffic checks on campus, walk through the campus buildings, staff special events, and facilitate a variety of safety and security presentations.

Kirkwood Campus Security officers may ask people for identification to determine whether they have legitimate business at the college. Campus Security officers have the authority to investigate offenses involving rule violations and to make referrals to the appropriate area of the college. Campus Security officers do not possess arrest powers and do not carry firearms. Criminal incidents are referred to the local police, who have jurisdiction on campus.

Campus Security works closely with local, state and federal police agencies. Through coordination with local law enforcement, criminal activity by students at off-campus locations is monitored and recorded. This information is referred to the appropriate area of the college.
