The Director of Safety and Security will conduct crime prevention and general security and safety awareness presentations when requested by various community groups, including students and employees of the College. During these presentations, the following information is typically provided: general crime prevention and security awareness, safety education, discussions about topics such as alcohol and drug abuse, active shooter, domestic violence, fire safety, emergency response and evacuation procedures, sex offender information, sexual assault prevention, and theft prevention.
Pierce College Campus Safety Sergeants and Officers regularly conduct presentations at student orientations, and upon request by various community groups throughout the year, describing crime on campus and in surrounding neighborhoods, emergency communications and response, reporting procedures, traffic/parking rules and permits, and courtesy services that the Campus Safety Department provides, to include escort services, disabled vehicle services, building access, and assistance with lost and found items.
Participants are routinely encouraged to be responsible for their own security and safety and for the security and safety of others on campus.
As part of a series of programs offered by the college, personal safety and first aid classes are conducted periodically. Information on safety and security is provided to students and employees on a regular basis through The Pioneer (Fort Steilacoom student newspaper), The Puyallup Post (Puyallup student newspaper), The Pen (employee electronic newsletter), and student and employee email systems.
Crime statistics for the three previous years are published annually and can be found at www.pierce.ctc.edu/studentlife/safety/reports. Students will find additional information in the college catalog at www.pierce.ctc.edu/pubs/catalog/ and the student handbook.
When time is of the essence, information is released to the college community through "push messages" sent over the college's computer network; email, voice and text messages sent to students and employee personal and work telephones and computers, and through the college's main website.
Campus Safety at Fort Steilacoom and Puyallup provides a number of services, free of charge, to our students, faculty, and staff.
