More Info about Safety Measures
In the event of an emergency:
- First, dial 911 to state your emergency and give your exact location.
- Next, dial extension 1126 or from your cell phone 920-565-1126 and give Campus Safety the same information.
It is the responsibility of ALL Lakeland College students to provide identification to any College official upon request. Thus, students are required to have their Lakeland College student identification card in their possession at all times while on campus property.
On Campus Housing Safety Measures
The vast majority of crimes on campus involve theft of personal property. Almost always, the theft is from an unlocked room or unattended common area. YOU can prevent these "crimes of opportunity" by following these steps:
- Always lock your door when you leave no matter how long you plan to be gone.
- Do not prop open residence hall doors for any reason.
- Keep your valuables—such as wallets, purses, money and jewelry—out of sight.
- Do not leave notes on your door announcing that no one is present.
- Never loan out your key or ID card.
- Report anyone acting suspiciously in and around campus housing or Greek Suites to Campus Safety & Security or a Residence Life staff member.
- Report any doors, locks or windows in need of repair to a Residence Life staff member.
- Do not let non-residents into halls. Visitors should be let in by the expecting student.
Securing Your Belongings:
- Do not leave personal objects (wallet, purse, books) unguarded in academic buildings, recreational facilities or residence halls.
- Bicycle locks and locks on car doors should be utilized to protect against theft.
- Do not leave keys outside under door mats or in an unattended area. Also, do not attach your keys to your College ID or driver's license; if lost, these items provide identifying information.

Campus Safety & Security officers are available 24 hours a day for safe walks and safe rides if students feel uncomfortable walking from one point to another on campus. Contact Campus Safety & Security at ext. 1126 or from your cell 920-565-1126 for more information.

- Lakeland College reserves the right to enter and search a residence hall room or apartment if any of its authorized personnel (e.g., resident assistant, residence hall director, maintenance, Safety and Security) has reason to believe:
- That there is a possibility of imminent hazard to persons or property; or
- That there is a violation of state or local law or college policy; or
- That contraband items are present but concealed from view
- If entry becomes necessary under these conditions, college personnel will knock and identify themselves. If there is no response, a passkey will be used to enter the room. Contraband items in plain view (e.g., items prohibited by law or college policy) may be confiscated by college personnel and used as evidence in student conduct hearings. If a room search is necessary, it will be conducted by Safety and Security (or by law enforcement, if necessary). If possible, a residence hall director will be present during the room search. When practical, the resident(s) whose room is to be searched will be allowed to be present during the search and will be informed of the reason for the search. The resident(s) need not give permission to search. College personnel will ask to open locked boxes and/or safes that belong to the resident(s). During a search, Safety and Security shall make a reasonable attempt not to unnecessarily disrupt belongings, and an effort shall be made to leave the room in the condition that it was found. A resident who believes his or her room has been wrongfully entered should report the matter to the Residence Hall Director.
