The Campus Safety Department is committed to supporting the educational mission of Lakes Region Community College by creating and maintaining a safe and secure environment for our campus community. The preservation of life, protection of property and prevention of crime will be our first priorities
Commitment to Safety
A safe campus can only be achieved with the cooperation of the entire college community. The Campus Safety Department is not available 24 hours a day. Officers are scheduled partial day-time coverage with a primary focus on evenings and weekends to ensure the safety of residents and property is maintained after normal business hours. Officers conduct vehicle and foot patrols on campus, as well as, at the Apple Ridge Student Apartments. Campus Safety officers do not make arrests. Officers and LRCC staff work closely with the Laconia, Belmont and Canterbury Police Departments. Daily activity logs are maintained and available to the public within two days of an event.
LRCC strongly encourages the reporting of crimes and emergencies. To contact Campus Safety, dial (603) 545-4392 to reach the Officer on duty. For non-emergencies contact 366-5280. Any suspicious individuals or activity should be reported immediately. The College encourages reporting directly to local authorities in situations where the need is evident. After contacting local authorities, ensure to next contact Campus Safety or the appropriate College personnel.
We expect members of the college community to assume responsibility for their own personal safety and the security of their personal belongings by taking simple steps. For example, although the campus and student apartments are well lit, a student, faculty or staff are encouraged to walk in groups. Further information on safety and security is provided to students and employees through posters,brochures and electronic communications.
Students are responsible for reading and following all LRCC policies as outlined in the Student Handbook
For LRCC’s Crime Statistics for the three previous years refer to the Annual Security Report.
