Your safety at Sussex County Community College is one of our top priorities. In fact, we just received top honors from the School Alliance Insurance Fund for our commitment to student safety for the sixth consecutive year! You can be sure that whether day or night, SCCC remains a safe and comfortable place to be.
Campus safety is managed by the Campus Security Department and is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Its officers utilize foot and vehicle patrols to observe and report situations or activities which may pose a danger to persons or property.
Please be advised that the Campus Security Officers are not armed and do not have police powers, but they will assist you, and they have a cooperative working relationship with the Newton Police Department.
Security Officers respond to all complaints and emergencies on campus. If warranted, security shall contact emergency services for Police/Fire/EMS response. Security Officers have received First Aid, CPR and AED training in addition to instruction in campus public safety procedures. Newton Police Department officers periodically patrol the campus roadways and parking facilities, maintaining public order, crime prevention, and provide for the enforcement of local and state laws.
We offer an email and optional text messaging system, Rave, to alert our students, faculty and staff of emergencies and closings. Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to enroll in the RAVE system for their safety and well-being, as this serves the primary method of communication for emergencies and other issues that may affect the regular schedule of classes and activities.
