Policies and Procedures

F0200 Buildings and Grounds Security

The buildings of the College represent a substantial investment. It is deemed in the best interest to protect the District's investment adequately.

Security should mean not only protection from illegal entry, vandalism or pilferage, but secure from fire hazards and faulty equipment. Security should also extend to safe practice in the use of electrical, mechanical, plumbing, heating, and other equipment. Records and funds should be kept in a safe place under lock and key when required.

The Board encourages close cooperation with the local police and sheriff's departments, the respective fire departments, and with the insurance company inspectors. Admittance to the buildings and grounds outside of regular College hours shall be limited to personnel whose work requires such access.

Protective devices designed to be used as safeguards against illegal entry and vandalism will be installed when appropriate to the individual situation. Security personnel may be approved when deemed appropriate.

An adequate key control system shall be established which will limit access to buildings to authorized personnel and will safeguard against unauthorized persons to access buildings.
