Crime Awareness

Rochester College’s security patrols the campus seven days a week from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. The Security Officer reports to the Director of Operations and is authorized to enforce administrative regulations, which are published in the Employee and Student Handbook.

All criminal actions and emergencies should be reported to the Resident Director and/or the Student Development Office immediately, and an Incident Report should be completed and filed. If you are a victim or a witness to a crime, contact the security on campus at 2911 or by cell at (248)-765-8013. You may also contact the Oakland County Sheriff’s department at (248) 858-4950 (non-emergency) or 911 (emergency).

Rochester College cooperates with the Oakland Sheriff’s department when a state or city statute is violated.

Residence halls are open between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and curfew. From curfew to 6:00 a.m., the residence halls are locked to outside access. If residents leave the halls during those hours, an alarm will sound. Students are strongly encouraged not to prop doors open since this subjects all occupants to unwanted intrusion.

We recommend that students lock their rooms at all times. Students of Rochester College are asked to report their own criminal activity each year and are occasionally screened according to circumstances.

It is Rochester College’s policy to lock the doors of buildings when not in use. When working or studying in buildings after normal working hours; however, it is suggested that individual offices be locked since access to the building may be possible.

Committed to Prevention

The College is committed to a program for the prevention of both the use and abuse of alcohol and the illegal use of drugs and alcohol by students and employees. College policy prohibits the use of drugs or alcohol on College property or at any student, off-campus function. This complete policy is available, as well as published and distributed, to all students and employees.

The College does not authorize any student organization to provide off-campus housing. Approved off-campus functions of student organizations normally require the presence of a faculty/staff or approved sponsor.

Although we believe our low incidence of crime will continue, this is not intended to give a false sense of security. Please remember that while a crime can occur at any time, your prevention effort can be effective in reducing the opportunities for criminal activity. You play an important role in our crime prevention efforts. Be cautious, careful and alert to your own safety and protective of your and the College’s possessions.
