Welcome to the Montgomery College Safety and Security Page.
Montgomery College is committed to providing a safe and secure environment at all times that will support and enhance the institution's educational programs and services. The Office of Safety and Security is responsible for the protection of the College community, first aid, emergency assistance, 24-hour escort service (upon request), enforcement of campus parking regulations, and the lost and found service. Officers on each campus are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In compliance with the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990, the College's campus security procedures are provided online in the Montgomery College Annual Security Report at www.montgomerycollege.edu/verified or www.montgomerycollege.edu/emergency. Click on the Annual Security Report.

In case of a life-threatening emergency, someone should call 9-1-1 and then notify Safety and Security. Students and employees are encouraged to carry a cell phone for reporting emergencies and receiving county and College alerts. Emergency phones are located in all campus elevators and in numerous internal and external locations. These phones will automatically ring in the nearest Office of Safety and Security. Calls made on the emergency phones are recorded. From off campus locations, call 9-1-1 and then notify the appropriate College administrator.
As an added safety measure, automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are available in every building on each campus. They are mounted in cabinets on the wall in the main lobby/entry area. A local alarm will sound when the cabinet is opened. Security officers also have a portable unit, and another unit is available in each security vehicle.
In the event of emergency situations involving Montgomery College directly - or if an emergency occurs at the local, regional, or national level that could impact the college community - Montgomery College's safety and security personnel and other College officials utilize in-house emergency response plans and coordinate their response activities with local, county, state and federal authorities, as appropriate. The College works directly in conjunction with Montgomery County's Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, in the event of any local activation of the county's Emergency Operations Center.
Additional information, including emergency evacuation area maps, is available at www.montgomerycollege.edu/emergency.
