Security

Moberly Area Community College is dedicated to providing a crime-free, safe environment for all employees and students . To have an effective program requires the continued, active support of all college personnel and members of the student body.

All college personnel are involved in the Moberly Area Community College crime prevention program. Distribution of literature containing “crime prevention tips” has been established to promote security awareness among the students and employees.

The student/employee safety guidelines shall be available to each student during registration, and to each employee during the fall faculty/staff orientation. In addition, programs relevant to campus security are made available to both students and employees each semester.

Moberly Area Community College is committed to assisting all members of the MACC community in providing for their own safety and security. The annual security and fire safety compliance document is available by clicking the button below.

Types of Programs Designed to Inform Students and Employees About Campus Security Procedures:

All college personnel are involved in the Moberly Area Community College crime prevention program. Distribution of literature containing “crime prevention tips” has been established to promote security awareness among the students and employees.

All employees are required to attend ALiCE intruder training,and the training is also offered to students. Regular “Security Briefs” are provided to alert the campus community of potential crimes or scams, including information on how to avoid being a victim. Training is also offered on-line through Workplace Answers and Student Empowerment courses, regarding Title IX sexual misconduct, drugs alcohol and other pertinent information. The student/employee safety guidelines shall be available to each student during registration and to each employee during the fall faculty/staff orientation. In addition, programs relevant to campus security are made available to both students and employees each semester.

Students and staff (and potential students and staff) at Moberly Area Community College have the right to be provided with statistics concerning the occurrence on campus, in non-campus buildings and on public property (meeting the definition as described in (6) (A) of the act) during the most recent calendar year, and during the two (2) preceding calendar years for which data are available of the following criminal offenses reported to campus security or local police agencies. Moberly Area Community College does not recognize any off-campus student organizations or off-campus housing facilities at any of our MACC locations.

Incarceration may remove a sex offender from the streets but it does nothing to prevent the offender from committing another crime when released.

The federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act, enacted on October 28, 2000, went into effect October 28, 2002. The law requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement agency information provided by a State concerning registered sex offenders may be obtained. It also requires sex offenders already required to register in a State to provide notice, as required under State law, of each institution of higher education in that State at which the person is employed, carries on a vocation, or is a student.

Information regarding individuals on the registered sex offenders’ list can be obtained from the local sheriff’s department.

The purpose of these regulations is to facilitate the safe and orderly operation of vehicular traffic and provide maximum parking space. These regulations are intended to make college parking facilities available to faculty, staff, students and guests, to promote pedestrian and vehicular safety, and to ensure access at all times for emergency vehicles. The responsibility for finding an authorized parking space rests with the operator, with the exception of reserved parking (those spaces marked by signs and/or numbers). Lack of space in a particular area is not considered a valid excuse for violation of the parking regulations. Inclement weather will not alter any provisions of these regulations. Vehicles shall not be parked on College property for any purpose other than to conduct College business. Students will be permitted to park on lots designated for student parking and in the on-street parking in front of the college. Students parking in the on-street parking are subject to city ordinances and regulations.

  • All operators of motor vehicles are subject to MACC regulations while on College property.
  • Drivers must be in possession of a valid operator’s license.
  • All accidents on MACC property should be reported promptly to the Security Department, located in Student Affairs, H-12 Andrew Komar Jr. Hall, or at the site office of other campus locations.
  • Persons who receive parking violations have 10 business days to pay the fine or appeal the violation.
  • The speed limit on campus is 10 mph at all times. This regulation is strictly enforced.
  • Failure to observe parking regulations will result in parking fines and/or disciplinary action, and possible towing. All violations will be assessed a $10.00 fine with the exception of handicap violations. All handicap violations will be assessed a $35.00 fine. Multiple violations may be assessed on one ticket.

The following violations can result in loss of parking privileges on MACC property:

  • Excessive or repeated parking violations;
  • Improper driving on any College lot at a speed in excess of 10 mph or driving on any College lot in a careless and reckless manner so as to endanger life or property;
  • Failure to comply with any request or order of anyone charged with the responsibility of enforcement of MACC traffic and parking regulations.

If you would like more information regarding the tow policy or violator policy, a student may contact the Director of Security in Student Affairs.

All vehicles parking illegally on the property of Moberly Area Community College will be issued violations and assessed fines by the Security Department. All violations will be recorded, and the vehicle registration or parking permit will be traced for affiliation to the College (faculty, staff, and student).

Any vehicle that cannot be identified as being affiliated with MACC will be added to a tow list after the third violation. Upon the fourth violation, the vehicle will be towed at the owner’s expense. All vehicles removed from MACC property will be towed by the local towing company utilized by Moberly Police Department at that time.

Any vehicle parked on MACC property that creates a hazard caused by the manner or location in which it is parked, or any habitual violator (see habitual violator policy) who continues to park on MACC property may also be towed according to this policy.

Any charges incurred during the towing process will be the owner’s responsibility, and will be settled between the owner and the towing company. In addition, any damages that may occur to the vehicle during towing will also be settled between the owner and the towing company, and will not be the responsibility of Moberly Area Community College.

All Moberly Area Community College students are subject to the parking rules and regulations set forth by the College when they operate and park a motor vehicle on MACC property. All vehicles parked on campus shall be registered with Student Affairs, and a permit will be displayed in the vehicle. Vehicles parked on College lots will be monitored for violations, and fines will be assessed to those drivers who illegally park their vehicles on campus.

Each permit issued will be allowed three violations per school year. Upon receiving the third violation, a letter will be sent to the student who is assigned that permit. The letter will advise the student that three violations have been assessed to their permit, and any further violations may result in the loss of parking privileges on MACC property.

If the permit holder receives a fourth violation, another letter is sent to the student informing them they have been placed on a “final warning” list. The student is advised that receiving a fifth violation will result in the parking permit being revoked. Should this happen, the student will not be allowed to park on MACC property until the following school year, at which time they may apply for a new permit. The permit information then goes on an “invalidated permit” list and anytime a vehicle is displaying that permit it will be issued a violation. Should the situation persist, the vehicle will be subject to towing at the owner’s expense (see tow policy).

Depending on the situation and the severity of the violation, the Security Director has the right to revoke a permit or tow a vehicle on the first violation.

The purpose of this procedure is to outline the procedures to be followed in recording, storing and disposing of items turned in as recovered property at all Moberly Area Community College sites. The Director of Security, H12 Andrew Komar, Jr. Hall, will administer the campus-wide recovered property program. The President has given the Director of Security the responsibility and authority to ensure that recovered property procedures are appropriately followed. This procedure applies to all employees of Moberly Area Community College and follows Missouri Revised Statutes, chapter 447.

Collection/Storage of Found Items and Disposal of Unclaimed Property

All items found by faculty, staff and students or items turned in to any College department shall be turned over to the Security Office, located inside the Office of Student Affairs. All recovered property should be reported to the Security Office within 24 hours of receiving it. Departments should attempt to determine:

  • Name of the person finding the property
  • Where the property was found
  • Any other relevant information pertaining to the discovery of the property

This information shall be recorded on a Moberly Area Community College Report Form (form GI 601) by the employee receiving the recovered property.

In addition, if the recovered property is a wallet or purse, the contents should be inventoried in front of the person turning in the property, and any currency contained within should be counted. If valuable, the property should be locked in a safe location until Security can retrieve it. Property should not be sent via campus mail.

After taking possession of the recovered property, the Director of Security will log the property into record and check against any lost inquiries made. Every attempt will be made to contact the owner of the property by using identification obtained within the property. The recovered property will then be stored in a secure location. Any item that has the potential of spoiling or creating an unclean or unsafe situation will be disposed of immediately (e.g. plastic ware, soiled clothing, undergarments, toiletry items and prescription drugs) if owner cannot be contacted. These items will not be logged in. Moberly Area Community College ID cards will not be logged in and will be turned over to Student Affairs. Vehicle license plates and driver’s licenses will not be logged in and will be turned over to the Department of Revenue.

After items of value have been held for a period of at least 60 (sixty) days and go unclaimed, the College will sell the property at a public auction. Proceeds from the auction shall be used by the College for a cause or purpose associated with the aims and endeavors of the College, as approved by the President. Items valued under $20.00 and clean clothing items will be donated to a local charity after 60 (sixty) days.

All security/safety incidents on any campus site are to be reported to the Director of Security. Completion of a Moberly Area Community College Security Report Form is required. A copy of this form, listing types of incidents, is located on myMACC under the “Employee” tab and “Employee Resources” link. If an incident occurs on the Moberly campus, faculty should contact the Security Office at x11247 as soon as possible thereafter to provide this office with information to complete this report. If an incident occurs at an off-campus site, faculty should complete the form themselves and contact the site director with the information as soon as possible thereafter. All incidents should be reported as soon as possible after occurrence.

In accordance with the Jeanne Clery Act, crime statistics for all campuses of MACC for the past three calendar years are available on the MACC website at www.macc.edu/index.php/crime-stats. The eleven specific types of incidents listed are required to be reported by law.

Photo student identification cards are issued through the Office of Student Affairs and Off-Campus site offices. The ID card allows the student access to MACC computer labs, athletic events, and student activities; it also serves as a library card. The first ID card is provided at no cost to the student and may be obtained/validated during regular office hours. Replacement ID cards are $5.

There are no cancellations at this time.

When it is publicly announced an MACC location is closed, the buildings will not be open. If it is announced that classes will begin late due to inclement weather, the College will not open doors until that time. Delayed starts allow more time for cleaning crews to clear lots and sidewalks. All students, faculty and staff should use their best judgment when traveling during inclement weather.

•  Delayed starts will typically be scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Classes that start before 10:30 a.m. and meet only until
10:55 a.m. or before will not meet, but classes that extend past the 10:55 meeting time (e.g., 9:00-11:55) will meet
beginning at 10:30 a.m.

•  Classes that start before 10:30 a.m. will be cancelled.

•  Classes that start at 10:30 a.m. and after will be held.

If the College closes early, classes in session will conclude at the closing time regardless of when they begin (i.e., if the College is closing at 3 p.m., a 2:30 p.m. class will end at 3 p.m. regardless of the regularly scheduled ending time).

Virtual classes will follow the same delayed start or cancellation practice as regular ground classes.

Classes held at the Kirksville Area Technical Center, Macon Area Career & Technical Center or the Moberly Area Technical Center will be cancelled if the public school is closed.

Online classes will follow the regular due dates for the class. Students are encouraged to communicate with faculty if a campus closing prevents them from meeting a deadline.

Students in special programs (i.e., Allied Health and Law Enforcement) will be expected to follow the guidelines of the programs regarding extended class time or clinical meetings.

The information will be given to the following radio and television stations, depending on the location of the campus closing. Students should also check myMACC for class specific cancellations due to faculty travel. To check for specific class cancellations, go to my.MACC.edu.
