Lockdown Procedures

In Chadron State College’s continuing effort to improve a safe campus community, the ILoveUGuys Active Shooter program has been initiated. The use of consistent language has shown to be effective in speeding up response to critical events.

Lock-Out

  • This will be announced if a threat exists close to or on campus.
  • When this is announced, we are asking that all building exterior doors be locked.
  • No one is allowed in during a lock-out.

Lock-Down

  • This will be announced when a threat is entering or has already entered a campus building.
  • When this is announced everyone is to secure themselves in a safe room in the building they currently are in.
  • Lock the room door, secure the door with anything you can find, barricade the door with items in the room.
  • Think about how you can defend yourself. Look around for possible weapons.
  • If you can safely get out of the building, do so.
  • Do not take time to gather your possessions.
  • Always follow the orders of law enforcement, campus security, and first responders.
  • This is not the time to question what is being asked of you.
  • Law enforcement does not know who the bad guy(s) or good guy(s) are.
  • They may ask you to raise your hands, crawl out, etc.
  • Expect yelling, loud noises, being grabbed, being searched, etc.
  • Let them do their jobs for everyone’s safety.

Shelter

  • This is announced for weather-related events like a tornado, severe thunderstorm, etc.
  • When this is announced you need to find a safe place in the building.

Evacuate

  • This announcement is issued for events such as fire, bomb threat, gas leak, etc.
  • This order requires everyone to leave the building they are in.
  • Do this safely, but quickly.
  • Do not touch or pick up anything.

Large, silver, reflective numbers are on all exterior doors of campus buildings. These numbers are placed in the upper-right-hand corner of the exterior door. Numbering follows a north-side, clockwise system. No. 1 is the first door on the north side, making No. 2 next as we move clockwise around a building. Stacked doors are numbered from the lowest door up. These numbers are to be used in the event of an emergency. Reporting parties are to use the building and closest door number when calling in an emergency.

Example: “Miller Hall door #1”

Solid exterior doors will also have the number placed on the interior in the lower-right-hand corner for quick identification.

What We Do

Chadron State College Security believes that a community committed to the prevention of crime promotes the safest living and learning environment.

Campus Patrol

Campus Security Officers patrol campus property in a marked vehicle, as well as on foot. Officers provide a visible deterrent and active response to criminal activity.

Safety Escort

Safety Escort services are available to all campus students, employees, and visitors. A Campus Security Officer will accompany anyone on campus property who feels apprehensive about walking alone—24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Crime Prevention Services

Campus Security will present programs to educate, inform, and encourage crime prevention techniques. The information and programs available include:

  • Student, parent, and employee orientation
  • Crime prevention techniques
  • Personal property security
  • Campus parking policies and enforcement
  • Active shooter campus procedures

Maintenance and security of campus facilities are the responsibilities of the entire campus community. Officers attend to the college’s buildings and grounds with consideration for safety and security. Report irregular conditions, such as broken windows or locks, burned out lights, or other hazards, to Campus Security. Officers will respond promptly to safety and security concerns. Campus Security will contact maintenance staff about each situation.

Crime Alerts

Crime alerts and crime reports are released when serious crimes occur that are considered to be a continuous threat to members of the campus community. When circumstances warrant, information may be provided to the campus community through:

  • Emails
