Crime Prevention and College Safety Tips

College safety begins with each member of the college community educating themselves, taking precautions, and being aware of preventive measures. 

Most incidents on campus can be avoided by taking basic precautions, such as walking in pairs at night, locking all offices and car doors, and not leaving personal valuables unattended.

Personal Safety

  • Always be aware of your surroundings and those people who are near you.
  • Report any suspicious persons and activities to the AVP, Human Resources or other administrative staff.
  • Report any non-operating lighting to Buildings and Grounds.
  • When you leave your class to walk to your car, especially at night, walk with a class mate. Include college instructors and staff in this "buddy system."

Personal Property

  • Never leave your property unattended.
  • Engrave your personal items (bikes, calculators, etc.) with your driver's license number.
  • Keep a written record of valuables, including descriptions and serial numbers. These are proof that the property is yours and will aid in the reporting process and recovery.
  • Always report missing or stolen property immediately to the AVP, Human Resources.
  • Use a locking device on your bicycle.

Vehicle Safety

  • Park in one of the lighted parking areas.
  • Lock your vehicle and close all windows.
  • Never leave items inside your vehicle.
  • Never store or hide a spare key in or on your vehicle.
  • Engrave accessories inside your vehicle with your driver's license number.

These guidelines apply to all members of the BMCC community (Students, Faculty, and staff) as well as contractors and visitors.

The following pamphlets outline information regarding sexual assault for both students and staff:

Sexual Assault Awareness

Clery Act Information

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (20 USC § 1092(f)) is the landmark federal law, originally known as the Campus Security Act, that requires colleges and universities across the United States to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses.

Institutions must publish an annual report disclosing campus security policies and three years worth of selected crime statistics. Please click here to review the Annual Security Report for each BMCC location.

  • Institutions must make timely warnings to the campus community about crimes that pose an ongoing threat to students and employees.
  • Each institution with a police or security department must have a public crime log.
  • The U.S. Department of Education centrally collects and disseminates the crime statistics.
  • Campus community sexual assault victims are assured of certain basic rights.
  • Institutions that fail to comply may be fined or lose eligibility to participate in federal student aid programs.
