The UACCM Department of Public Safety is located in the Public Safety Building just west of the Kirk Building. Campus police officers patrol the campus in an effort to provide a safe educational setting. Campus police officers are certified law enforcement officials and are on the campus to protect students, employees, and approved visitors.
While on campus, students and employees who experience minor car trouble may also ask for assistance from campus police. Courtesy services available through the campus police include:
- Jumping a Dead Battery
- Unlocking a Car with Keys Locked Inside
- Changing Flat Tires
Campus safety is dependent on everyone. Students are encouraged to report crimes, suspicious people, or suspicious activities to the campus police officers. Reports may be made by calling the Campus Police direct line or by using the QuikTip app.
QuikTip is a secure two way communication app that allows the public to provide tips and information to the Campus Police about safety concerns. The app allows the Campus Police to communicate back with questions or acknowledgement while the tipster remains anonymous.
Those who download the QuikTip app should choose the agency name "UACC-Morrilton". Once set up, the app allows the user to:
- Call Campus Police directly by tapping the "Hotline" button.
- Send a safety tip or concern directly to Campus Police by selecting the "New Tip" button. This will allow you to add a picture or send the tip anonymously.
The QuikTip app is FREE and is available for iPhone and Android phones. Get it today and be ready.
Emergency Alert System (EAS)
Should potentially dangerous situations occur, they will be communicated to students through the Emergency Alert System. Students must sign up for this service through the My UACCM Portal in order to get these alerts.
Safer Places on Campus
Should inclement weather require the seeking of shelter, UACCM has published a list of safer areas on campus per building.
The College publishes an annual Campus Security Report by October 1 of each year which contains statistics and a description of the efforts to promote campus safety and ways to report crimes or suspicious activities.
Federal law requires that colleges maintain a list of any sex offenders employed by the college or attending the college and make this list available to individuals as needed. If any sex offenders become affiliated with the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton, a record of their level of offense and their affiliation will be maintained by the Vice Chancellor for Student Services. The Notification of Sexual Offender Review Committee will determine distribution of information regarding sexual offenders.
