Campus Security Officers conduct vehicle and foot patrols on campus. They are charged with the enforcement of federal, state and local laws, and rules and regulations of Leeward CC.
They perform the full range of public safety services dealing with incident reports; campus investigations, medical and fire emergencies; traffic accidents; enforcement of laws regulating the use of alcohol, drugs and weapons, inspection of lighting and shrubbery; and all other situations requiring Campus Security assistance.
While Campus Security Officers do not have police powers and are not authorized to carry firearms, any campus incident requiring an arrest is referred to the Honolulu Police Department. Campus Security Officers are trained in areas such as emergency first-aid, CPR, report writing, investigative skills, and crowd control by experts from federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies.
Campus security maintains a close working relationship with all law enforcement agencies within the State utilizing their resources and expertise as needed. Whenever appropriate, meetings are held with these external agencies and crime-related information reports and statistics are exchanged.
CRIME PREVENTION PROGRAMS
The Leeward CC crime prevention program is based upon the dual concept of eliminating or minimizing opportunities for crime while encouraging students and employees to assume responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others by taking common sense precautions. The following is a listing of Leeward CC crime prevention programs.
Escort Service: Campus security provides walking escort service for anyone requesting an escort when walking on campus at night. An escort can be summoned to your location by calling Security at Ext. 611. The escort will walk you to any facility or vehicle parked on campus.
Emergency Call Boxes: There a blue call box located on the outside wall of the Security Office at LA 238. This emergency call box is activated by picking up the hand set. Additional Emergency Call boxes are located throughout campus. See Campus Map for locations.
Facilities and Grounds Surveys: All potential safety and security hazards observed by our officers on patrol are promptly reported to the appropriate unit for corrective action. The Security Supervisor also participates in the review of the safety issues and concerns of the College.
