About HCC menu:
One of the essential ingredients of any successful crime prevention program is an informed public. It is the intent of Harford Community College to inform students and staff in a timely manner of any criminal activity or security problem that may pose a reasonable threat to their physical safety.
College Life sponsors crime awareness/prevention programs, including forums on self-defense and lectures on prevention of date rape. Notices of scheduled events are posted on OwlNet, placed in the student newspaper, and published in other schedules of events.
Campus facilities are accessible to students and staff during the College’s normal operating hours. Facilities are opened and monitored during non-operating hours for scheduled special events. When the College is closed, buildings and facilities are secured and inaccessible.
HCC has installed surveillance cameras throughout the campus to enhance safety and security. Additionally, emergency phone lines have been installed in all classrooms. The phones will dial directly to 911 or Public Safety by pressing the corresponding speed dial and should only be used in the event of an emergency. The phones cannot be used to manually dial a phone line and may not receive incoming phone calls.
In the event of a campus emergency, HCC may activate the emergency notification system, HCC AlertMe. Students must keep their contact information updated through OwlNet.
The Department of Public Safety operates an escort service at all times for use by any person concerned about his or her safety while on campus. To request to be escorted on campus, contact the Department of Public Safety, and remain in a well-lit or populated area while waiting for the Public Safety Officer.
