Carteret Community College’s Security Officers are not sworn law enforcement and do not carry weapons. However we do work very closely with Morehead City Police Department in the event we need law enforcement assistance. Campus security officers may detain alleged offenders for the short period it takes for law enforcement to arrive.

We have also experienced in the past some domestic disputes.

 

Are the security officers required to give reports of their patrols? 

Yes. Each officer on duty must submit a written daily activity report and a detailed incident report when necessary.

How often during nighttime hours do security officers patrol the campus? 

Security officers regularly patrol all parts of the campus, including buildings and parking lots during the evening classes. At any time if a student feels unsafe walking to their vehicle, they may contact security and ask for an escort to their vehicle. Morehead City Police Department also makes periodic patrols of the campus, especially at night.

As a student, what should I know about parking while on campus? 

The college requires all students and employees to have a current college parking decal on their vehicles. The parking passes are handed out through Student Activities located in the Bryant Student Center. Parking violations may result either in a warning, a parking ticket, or the vehicle being towed. The enforcement measure selected is determined by the severity of the offense.

Students, employees, and visitors may contact the college Security Department at 252-222-6188 or via email at: security@carteret.edu if they have any concerns or questions regarding security at the college.
