Campus Security & Roles

Southeastern Community College Campus Security officers patrol the West Burlington 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.

SCC Campus Security officers may ask persons for identification to determine whether individuals have legitimate business at the college. Campus Security officers have the authority to investigate minor offenses involving rule violations and to make a referral 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 agencies, criminal activity engaged in by students at off-campus locations is monitored and recorded. This information is referred to the appropriate area of the college.

  • 365 days a year campus service (West Burlington Campus only).
  • Enforcement of college, as well as local, state, & federal laws and regulations.
  • Investigative reports and criminal investigation.
  • Escorts for students, faculty, and staff.

Annual Campus Security Report

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) is a federal law which requires colleges and universities to publish an annual security report (ASR) detailing the College's campus crime statistics as well as policies and procedures related to campus safety and security.

The ASR includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Southeastern Community College, and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, and other safety matters.

In addition, the 2008 Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) requires the publication of an annual fire safety report providing information about campus fire statistics and safety practices if the institution has student housing. Required elements of both reports are contained in this single document titled the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report.

By October 1st of each year, the content and availability of the annual security report will be placed on the SCC Hawknet which is the campus electronic portal for each current student and employee. In addition, each current student and employee will be emailed a notification of the availability with a direct link of accessibility to the report on the college website as well as directions on how to request a printed copy. As well, prospective students and prospective employees can access the report via the SCC website. Printed copies will also be available in the Student Affairs Office, as well as the West Burlington and Keokuk libraries.

In the following pages you will read about SCC's security, safety, Title IX, Clery/VAWA policies, procedures and crime statistics.

If you ever feel unsafe, threatened in any way or observe suspicious behavior, please bring your concerns forward to any college employee who can guide you to support resources and appropriate reporting procedures.
