Louisiana College Campus Security is a private security force, employed by Louisiana College, and working at the discretion of the Director of Safety and Security. There is a core of full-time employees supplemented with part-time guards.
Campus security is responsible for traffic control, law enforcement, and security of the College. Security is on the radio frequency with the Pineville Police Department, Pineville Fire Department, and Emergency Rescue (911). All of these agencies are only a few blocks from the campus and cooperate regularly with Louisiana College Security.
Security is on duty twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week and strives to serve the campus community in every way possible for safety, service and protection.
Campus Security does not have the power to make an arrest. Campus security does work very closely with the Pineville Police Department. All crimes in violation of the law are reported to Pineville Police for appropriate action including arrest and/or prosecution. Violations of campus regulations are handled by campus security and those in violation are referred to the proper College administrative officials for disciplinary action.
Classroom buildings remain open until 10:00 p.m. most of the time. The security officer on duty does make periodic rounds through these buildings; however, students should be advised that there are no security or staff member posted on duty in these buildings.
Campus security can be reached by dialing 308-6505 or 487-SAFE (7233); and if you are unable to contact Campus Security and it is an emergency, please call Pineville Police at 442-6603 or 911.
Access to Campus Facilities
Most campus buildings and facilities are accessible to the campus community, guests and visitors during normal business hours. Access to buildings after normal business hours, weekends and holidays is available by contacting the security officer on duty (308-6505). Access to labs or secured classrooms will require written authorization for access from the professor or instructor responsible for that facility. Students will be required to present their student identification card for access.
Louisiana College Identification Card
Faculty, staff and students are required to have a Louisiana College identification card in their possession at all times and to present their Louisiana College identification card upon request. The Louisiana College identification card is available at the Louisiana Athletic Club during normal business hours.
