Safety & Security

TO PROTECT AND SERVE

Safety is a top priority on the HutchCC Campus. A dedicated staff of professionals, including a full-time (non-sworn) security officer, help ensure student safety on campus. The HutchCC staff also works in tandem with the Hutchinson Police Department and Reno County Sheriff’s Office to provide the highest level of safety for students on campus. Security cameras and a well-lit campus grounds also provide a sense of comfort for students as they travel from place to place.

Campus Security Information

 

A federal law, the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act amendment to the Jacob Wetterling Crimes Against Children and Sexually Violent Offender Registration Act, requires registered sex offenders to indicate when they are enrolled or employed at an institution of higher learning. Hutchinson Community College requires offenders who are required to register with law enforcement authorities to also register with the HutchCC Coordinator of Equity & Compliance prior to the start of that student's first class at HutchCC following conviction. Employees are required to register with the Human Resources Office upon conviction. Applicants for employment are required to disclose convictions on their application for employment.

HutchCC reserves the right to limit enrollment or the activities of students who are registered sex offenders. Students who fail to comply with this policy are subject to immediate cancellation of current classes. Employees who fail to comply with the policy may be subject to dismissal.

The Campus Sex Crime Prevention Act revised previous laws to require colleges to inform the campus community as to where information may be obtained about registered sex offenders attending or working at the college. The list is available at the Hutchinson Community College Security Office and with the Coordinator of Equity & Compliance inside the Parker Student Union, which is located at the corner of 14th and Plum on the College’s Main Campus in Hutchinson.

Further information regarding registered sex offenders may also be accessed through the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) Registered Offender website.
