Safety and Security
At St. Louis Christian College, the safety and well-being of our students, guests, faculty, and staff are always a priority. At the same time, a truly safe campus can only be achieved through the cooperation of everyone. This information is a part of our effort to ensure that this collaborative endeavor is effective. We hope that you will read it carefully and use the information to help foster a safe environment for yourself and the campus.
It is the mission of the office of Campus Security to complement and support the advancement of the educational purposes of the College by providing a safe and secure environment for learning, working, and personal development.
When Campus Security is notified of criminal activity, request for assistance, or any type of emergency situation, members of the security team respond without delay. Requests for information and assistance are promptly fulfilled.
It is the philosophy of the campus safety service department that we would much rather prevent crimes from occurring than react to them after the fact. A primary vehicle for accomplishing this goal is safety awareness and crime prevention. Information about Campus Security and personal safety and security issues are distributed at various locations throughout the campus as well as given in informative seminars offered during lunch.
SLCC has developed a comprehensive emergency response plan. Please click here to view it.
SLCC has made available for distribution an Annual Security Report and an Annual Campus Fire Safety Report, combined in one document. In compliance with Department of Education requirements, these are published each fall. Please click here to view the annual report for 2019.
In order to receive timely notifications in the event of an emergency, students are encouraged to subscribe to our text messaging (SMS) notification system. To subscribe, text @slccstudent to the phone number 810-10.
All Campus Security officers are licensed by the St. Louis County, MO, Police Department. They are also certified in CPR and AED. Parking lots, buildings, and campus areas are actively patrolled by Campus Security officers. Emphasis is placed on the evening hours, when the need for higher visibility is necessary.
Reporting Criminal Activity / Emergencies
The Campus Security Department wants to assist in helping you to protect yourself and your property. When a life-threatening situation arises, dial 911 from any campus telephone for outside police or emergency medical assistance.

The College employs security personnel around the clock and the campus is well-lit at night. The city of Florissant has an outstanding reputation for a low crime rate. Current information on criminal incidents (if any) on the campus of St. Louis Christian College is available on the U.S. Department of Education website at https://ope.ed.gov/security.
Other Security Matters
The Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act requires institutions of higher education to provide a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement information provided by a state concerning registered sex offenders can be obtained. In accordance to the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000, the Clery Act, and the Family Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, the College is providing information for where students and employees may obtain information regarding registered sex offenders. The Missouri Sex Offenders Registry may be found here.
