As the safety of students, faculty, staff and visitors is always a primary consideration, South College strives to have a safe and secure environment for the campus community. Off duty officers from the Knoxville Police Department provide security services for the college, thus enhancing the college’s efforts to prevent crime and maintain a safe campus. The college publishes an annual security report that contains information on policies and procedures relating to campus security, crimes and emergencies, drug and alcohol use, preventive measures, campus law enforcement, and access to campus facilities. The annual security report also includes statistics concerning the occurrence of specified types of crimes on campus and on the public property surrounding the campus. The security report is published each year by October 1 and distributed to current students and employees. The report contains statistics for the three most recent calendar years. A copy of the most recent annual security report may be obtained from the Office of the Vice President of Institutional Effectiveness and Student Services during normal office hours. Crime statistics are available on the institutional website in the Student
Services section. In addition to the annual security report, South College maintains a crime log recording all reported crimes. The crime log is available for public inspection during regular business hours at the Office of the Vice President of Institutional Effectiveness and Student Services. South College will notify the campus community in a timely manner of any criminal action includable in the annual security report that is reported to campus security or local police and that is considered to be a threat to students or employees.
The cooperation of all campus community members is needed in order to maintain a safe campus. South College reminds all students and employees that they are ultimately responsible for their own actions regarding their safety and welfare.
