24-Hour Public Safety Phone

Mid-America Christian University Department of Public Safety employs four state-certified police officers, three reserve police officers and two Public Safety Officers. The department operates 24 hours a day, which provides the MACU community with around the clock service and protection. Police and/or Public Safety Officers patrol the university on a regular basis.

In an effort to continue to provide a safe atmosphere for all students, faculty, and staff, MACU has launched several initiatives recently:

  • MACU has installed emergency alert speakers throughout the campus for rapid notification of emergencies.

  • MACU has installed security cameras throughout the campus allowing for remote monitoring 24 hours a day by safety officials.

  • MACU will deploy a mass notification system in Fall 2009 using text messaging technologies to notify all students of emergencies and/or school closings.

  • MACU provides all dorm living rooms with a public telephone connection with the ability to place 911 emergency calls.

  • MACU Department of Public Safety works closely with the Office for Student Services to provide local resources for students dealing with mental health issues.
