Emergency Notification

Warner Pacific uses the e2Campus messaging system to notify the campus community via text message about emergencies on campus and weather related closures. Faculty, staff, and students must sign up for this service at https://www.e2campus.net/my/warnerpacific/index.htm.

Crime Prevention

Campus Safety and Student Affairs personnel discuss crime prevention during Welcome Weekend and new student registration events with parents and students. Security and safety measures are a part of the Residence Life staff training and are also discussed in the residence hall meetings at the beginning of each academic year.

In addition to the visibility of Campus Safety officers on campus, we ask that Warner Pacific employees and students follow a few simple guidelines:

  • Always lock your office, room or apartment when you are not present.
  • Always lock your car.
  • Make sure doors to campus facilities and residence halls close and latch behind you. If you notice doors that do not close and latch by themselves in general academic buildings, please report to Facilities Services. For housing facilities, please report to the Student Affairs Coordinator.
  • Do not prop exterior doors to facilities.
  • Never leave valuables (computers, phones, backpacks, money, etc.) unattended in your car.
  • Never leave valuables unattended in common areas: coffee shop, dining hall, classrooms, SUB, etc.

Remember that the whole campus community is affected by our attention or inattention to these matters. Please help us keep our campus as safe and secure as we possibly can.

The Warner Pacific College campus is private property, and permission to enter or pass through is revocable at any time. Anyone who fails to cooperate with college authorities, including Campus Safety personnel, will not be permitted on campus.

Self Defense Training Classes

The Portland Police Bureau offers FREE self-defense training classes monthly through a program called WomenStrength. They offer Introductory, Intermediate and Refresher classes.

  • Introductory classes are taught in three hour evening sessions once a week for three weeks and are taught by volunteers, most of whom have gone through the program themselves.
  • Intermediate classes are offered quarterly and are for women who have taken the Introductory class within the last six months and are interested in continued training. Intermediate classes are scheduled on a Saturday and are a 7.5 hour class.
  • Refresher classes are offered quarterly and are for women who have taken the Introductory class and would like to practice the skills that they have learned.

For registration information and other resources see the WomenStrength website  or visit the Office of Student Affairs (Smith Hall, Lower D Wing).

Crime and Fire Statistics

The Annual Campus Security and Fire Safety Report (2013) is published in order to satisfy the requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. Included is information on crime and fire statistics, information and statements of policy on various crime, emergency and fire safety subjects as well as important contact information for Campus Safety and Student Affairs personnel. The report which satisfies requirements for each of the three Warner Pacific College campuses – Mt. Tabor, Centre 205 and Cascade – is updated annually and will be provided to all applicants for enrollment or employment if requested.

Vehicle Registration

Vehicles parked on any of the Warner Pacific College campuses or at any of the class locations must be registered with the Office of Campus Safety and display a current Warner Pacific College parking permit. Traditional Program students can purchase parking permits in the Office of Student Affairs for $65 per semester. The accounts of students who purchase a permit in the Fall semester will be automatically charged for the Spring semester. Adult Degree Program students receive permits when they register for class.

Campus Safety Personnel

The Office of Campus Safety is located in the maintenance building directly behind the A.F. Gray Hall Administration building. The Office of Campus Safety employs 3 full time officers and multiple part time officers including some student officers. All Campus Safety officers are certified unarmed security officers with the Oregon State Department of Public Safety Standards and Training and first aid, CPR and AED trained. Officers are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be reached by the Campus Safety cell phone at 503.250.1730 or 503.517.2127 (extension 2127 from any campus phone).

Campus Safety officers’ authority is limited to Warner Pacific property. Officers are bound by limitations of a private security officer including, but not limited to, the laws regarding arrest, search and seizure, and the appropriate use of force. In crime reporting and criminal investigations, Campus Safety officers will work with and assist local law enforcement in any way possible.

Duties

The Office of Campus Safety’s primary concern is the protection of the people and property of Warner Pacific College and it seeks to work with all members of the Warner Pacific community to ensure a safe working, living and learning environment.

Officers unlock Mt. Tabor campus facilities as necessary during business hours and secure them at the end of the business day. Locking and unlocking schedules vary based on campus calendars. Campus facilities and grounds are patrolled regularly by officers during the overnight hours. Because we recommend that students, especially during evening and late night hours, walk the campus in at least pairs, officers are always available to escort Warner Pacific community members anywhere on campus.
