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.
