KCC Public Safety

The Department of Public Safety at Kellogg Community College is responsible for ensuring a safety and secure environment conducive to a quality educational experience. KCC is committed to the safety and welfare of all students, faculty, staff and visitors and is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment at all its campus locations. Since no college campus is isolated from crime, KCC has developed a series of policies and procedures that are designed to ensure that every possible precautionary measure is taken to protect individuals on our campuses.

The Department of Public Safety is responsible for campus police/security and safety, including emergency management, public health and OSHA/MIOSHA compliance.

The department is a fully functioning law enforcement agency with arrest powers and is comprised of a blended force of Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards certified officers and unarmed security officers contracted through a licensed State of Michigan security provider. The College Public Safety Department also maintains an excellent working relationship with the City of Battle Creek Police Department and other local law enforcement departments which can assist with enforcement of state and local laws and ordinances.

Video surveillance equipment is deployed in most public areas of all facilities and some parking lots. The College will continue to add cameras in these areas as funds are made available. Students and staff can request the Department of Public Safety to review video recordings for suspicious activity or alleged criminal activity. If video surveillance reveals alleged criminal activity, Public Safety staff will provide local law enforcement agencies with a copy for investigation purposes.
