The Police Unit of Public Safety is a team of law enforcement professionals working to provide a safe environment in support of LCC’s educational mission. LCC Police provide crime prevention and control, criminal investigations, traffic and parking supervision, facilities security, and emergency first-aid treatment; operational leadership for law enforcement incidents, disaster assistance, and general public order & safety assurance. Police officers are responsible for the enforcement of all state and local laws and are MCOLES certified.
The ability to function as an independent law enforcement agency enables LCC Police to provide a sensitive, measured approach to situations requiring police assistance while still maintaining the autonomy of the College. Police jurisdictional authority includes Eaton and Ingham counties, including the City of Lansing. Police presence on campus includes downtown 24/7 and West campus during general operational hours into the evening.
Public safety maintains a 24 hour a day/7 days a week presence on the Lansing downtown campus via Dispatch and on duty police officers and cadets. Dispatch operators monitor security cameras & severe weather status, take calls for general service or help, and call for assistance to local first responders when necessary. Dispatch is available to assign general and emergency assistance anytime and is essentially the Public Safety communications hub. LCC Dispatch can be reached by calling 517-483-1800 or 911 from downtown or west campuses using a campus phone. They can also be contacted from any downtown campus blue emergency call box or the RAVE Guardian App.
Student parking services are available during regular business hours. However, safety escorts and car help (i.e., battery jump & car unlock) are available anytime.
