Safe Environment

Cape Coral Technical College (Cape Coral Technical College) is an integral part of the community it serves. As such Cape Coral Technical College shares many of the same interests and problems, including a concern about crime. The Center experiences many of the same risks and threats as the community in which it is located. We are vitally concerned about the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and all visitors who participate in the many activities, which we sponsor.

Although the Center has not experienced a significant number of criminal acts or safety concerns, everyone should be aware of potential problems. We encourage you to join the effort to make Cape Coral Technical College a safe and secure environment for everyone. Check the Florida Department of Law Enforcement website for additional information regarding your safety and security.

Campus Safety & Security Policies & Procedures

It is the policy of Cape Coral Technical College that all reasonable measures shall be taken to protect students, employees and visitors. It is expected that all faculty, staff and students will act in a safe manner and report any unsafe condition or dangerous situation. The Center will not tolerate any type of disruptive or inappropriate behavior that interferes with the primary educational mission of Cape Coral Technical College, or creates a threat to any person or property. We take a pro-active stance on safety and security matters and sponsor programs to encourage an awareness of safety and security hazards.

Safety & Security - Everyone's Concern

Cape Coral Technical College provides a two-way radio equipped security guard who helps with the protection of people and property for those hours the school is open or in session. However, cooperation and involvement of every member of the Center, student, staff and visitor, is absolutely necessary to ensure maximum safety and security. All persons must assume responsibility for their own safety and security of personal belongings. No security plan can attain maximum effectiveness unless everyone contributes to making it work. The following is a list of a few common sense precautions for your safety and security.

  1. Never leave your purse or valuables unattended, even for a brief moment. Secure valuables whenever possible.
  2. Always lock your car. Lock valuables in trunk.
  3. Do not loiter in the parking lot.
  4. Be patient when leaving the parking lots after class. Accidents have happened in the parking lot and in the intersection of streets surrounding Cape Coral Technical College.
  5. Be sure to mark or label all property.
  6. If you are on campus at night, take the following precautions:
    - Always walk in a group or with at least one other person.
