The College also has a special emergency telephone
number, ELK-HELP, manned 24 hours a day with direct
radio contact to all College security officers.
Florida Community College security officers are unarmed and do not have police
powers, but they work closely with local law enforcement agencies on follow-up
actions or investigations related to criminal activities on campus. In order
to facilitate this relationship, all employees and students are encouraged
to promptly report all criminal or suspicious activity to the nearest security
A special crime prevention unit associated with the security department conducts
crime prevention workshops at each Florida Community College campus throughout
the year. These programs are open to employees and students alike and are free
of charge. In support of this crime prevention effort, this same unit maintains
points of distribution for appropriate literature at each campus.
Since the College has no recognized fraternities or other off-campus student
organizations, there are no records maintained on liquor, drugs or weapons
violations by students associated with such organizations.

Sexual Assault Sexual
assault (rape) is a serious crime which has a major impact
on the campus community as well as on the students who are
victimized. Florida Community College will not tolerate sexual
assault in any form, including date and acquaintance sexual
assault. Should probable cause be determined that campus regulations
prohibiting sexual assault have been violated, disciplinary
action will be pursued through the code of student conduct
or other appropriate internal processes. Discipline may result
in suspension or dismissal from the College.
Any student or employee reporting a sexual assault will be treated with respect
and sensitivity. Contacts and conversations which transpire pursuant to this
procedure will be held in confidence.
