Additional Information

About KCC Public Safety

The Public Safety Department is a fully-functioning law enforcement agency with arrest powers and is comprised of a blended force of Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards certified officers and unarmed security officers contracted through a licensed State of Michigan security provider. The College Public Safety Department also maintains an excellent working relationship with the Battle Creek Police Department and other local law enforcement departments which can assist with enforcement of state and local laws and ordinances.

Video surveillance equipment is deployed in most public areas of all facilities and designated parking lots. The College will continue to add additional cameras. Students and staff can request Public Safety to review video recordings for suspicious activity or alleged criminal activity. If video surveillance reveals alleged criminal activity, Public Safety will conduct a full investigation.

Lost & Found

As a service to the KCC community, Public Safety maintains lost and found items. Items turned in to Public Safety are held for 30 days. After the holding period, items containing confidential information are permanently disposed of and all other items are donated to local charity. When claiming a lost item, individuals must show ID and sign for the item. Items can be claimed at the Public Safety station located in the walkway near the Hub on campus at 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek.

Public & Community Health
Kellogg Community College’s Public Safety Department is charged with overseeing public and community health for students, staff and visitors. The goal of KCC’s public and community health initiatives is to promote a healthy learning and working environment that advances the well-being and academic advancement of its students by providing prevention-oriented instructional information and resources.

Communicable Disease & Vaccination Policy

It is KCC policy to safeguard, to the highest degree possible, College employees, students and the public who come into contact with people who are known to have or are suspected of having a communicable disease without endangering the KCC community or individual students.

Students who have contracted a communicable disease that presents a potentially serious health hazard will have their individual situations reviewed by a panel convened by KCC’s president. The president shall have the authority to remove the individual from the KCC environment, pending the recommendation of the panel. All reportable communicable diseases will be referred to the local county health department in accordance with Michigan statutory and administrative guidelines.

In the event of a communicable disease outbreak, such as a pandemic flu, KCC will work with county health departments and rely on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to determine the need for employees and students to have specific vaccinations.

Allied Health students may require specific vaccinations prior to attending clinical education sites. Specific vaccination requirements will be outlined by program faculty prior to the start of clinicals.
