Annual Security Report | MCTC

Annual Security Report

Maysville Community & Technical College (MCTC) is a two-year community and technical college and is one of 16 colleges that make up Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS). The college has four campuses and partnerships with area school systems. Additionally, MCTC does not have any residential housing.

The Jean Cleary Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, codified at 20 USC 1092 (F) as a part of Higher Education Act of 1965, is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose certain timely and annual information about campus crime and security policies. All public and private institutions of post-secondary education participating in federal student aid programs are subject to this act. The Clery Act, originally enacted by the Congress and signed into law by President George Bush in 1990 as the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990, was championed by Howard and Connie Clery after their daughter Jeanne was murdered at Lehigh University in 1986. They also founded the non-profit agency Security on Campus, Inc. in 1987. Amendments to the Act in 1998 renamed it in memory of Jean Clery. The Clery Act was revised under the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) of 2008.Beginning on July 1, 2010, the Clery Act requires colleges and universities to have emergency response and evacuation procedures in place. Institutions must include a summary of the emergency response procedures in their annual security report.

Each college of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System is responsible for the preparation of the Annual Security Report in cooperation with Legal Affairs, Campus Security Authorities, and local police agencies. The statistics include alleged and attempted crimes. All crimes reported in “good faith” and occurring on-campus, on public property surrounding our campuses, or in off campus college-owned buildings or property is recorded for inclusion in the annual crime statistics. This report provides statistics for the previous three academic years. The statistics are requested annually from local law enforcement agencies and submitted to the Security Director for collection and analysis. For statistical purposes, crime statistics reported to any of these sources are recorded in the calendar year the crime was reported.

The report includes statistics submitted by Legal Affairs, Student Affairs, Human Resources, Campus Security Authorities, and local law enforcement agencies. These reports are reviewed, and if reportable under the Clery Act, are included in the annual statistics. Police arrest statistics and campus disciplinary referral data for weapons violations, drug violations and liquor law violations are analyzed by Campus Security to avoid duplicated reporting. Our colleges do not have any student organizations at Off-Campus locations, therefore incidents related to off-campus activities of student organizations are not reported.

All of these statistics are gathered, compiled and reported to the campus community via the Annual Security Report which is published each year. Campus Security submits the annual crime statistics published in this report to the Department of Education (ED) each year. The statistical information gathered by the Department of Education is available to the public through the ED web site.

By October 1 of each year, all enrolled students and employees receive an email notification regarding a summary of the content and the availability of the report via the college website, as well as how to request a printed copy of the report. Prospective students and employees receive information regarding the report from the head of security.

Campus Security Authorities are defined as individuals having significant responsibility for student activities, including administrators and student services personnel such as, Deans, Directors, Legal Affairs, athletic team coaches, and faculty and/or student advisors. Although crimes should be reported to campus Security or the Title IX Coordinator (sexual violence only), if these individuals receive a report of a crime listed under the Clery Act they are obligated to report it to campus security for purposes of disclosure in the annual crime statistics. 

KCTCS colleges do not have a campus police department.  No campus personnel have arresting powers. If physical measures are needed to ensure the safety and security of persons on campus, state or local police agencies shall be contacted. 

While there are no Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) with local or state enforcement agencies. KCTCS Colleges maintain a strong working relationship with state and local police through training, meetings and communicating with local and state police agencies in the investigation of criminal offenses.

Off-Campus Student Organizations

MCTC does not recognize any student organizations operating in off-campus locations.

Student Housing

MCTC does not operate any student housing facilities.

Procedures for Campus Crime Reporting

Students, staff, faculty, and guests are strongly encouraged to promptly report all criminal actions or other emergencies occurring on Campus to campus Security Authority or local police agencies, if necessary.

Crimes should be reported to the Campus Security Authority for purposes of assessing the crime, for distributing potential timely warning notices, and for disclosure in the annual crime statistics. Crime reporting is critical as it may prevent future crimes, protects the community, and increases the likelihood of apprehension and adjudication of perpetrators.

Although Campus Security strives to maintain a safe and open environment for victims to report crimes, individuals may not feel comfortable contacting the police.  In these instances, reporting to other campus security authorities are available. As an example, sex offenses may be reported to the college Title IX Coordinator.

Criminal incidents should be reported to the Operations Manager-Safety and Security at (606) 759-7141, extension 66357 or (606) 694-6400, or the Switchboard who will contact the Operations Manager-Safety and Security. The reporting person may remain anonymous.

In some cases, the Director of Safety and Security (or equivalent official) will make timely warning reports to members of the campus community regarding criminal activity. The criminal activity must be serious in nature and likely to pose an ongoing or continued threat to the safety of students, staff, faculty, and guests. The decision to make a timely warning report will be made by the Campus Security Authorities. Notification is generally made through a campus-wide email bulletin to all members of the campus community.  Flyers may also be placed in the common areas of the buildings used by the campus community.  Timely warning information may be posted on the applicable KCTCS college websites and/or digital banners.

It is the consistent practice of the KCTCS community to notify the Campus Security Authorities and/or designee, who then confers as necessary with appropriate KCTCS System Office administrators, Public Relations, Legal counsel and neighboring law enforcement agencies after a violent crime or Clery Act crime is reported.  This is done to determine if the circumstances and facts represent a serious or ongoing threat to members of the community.

The Campus Security Authorities will prepare and arrange to disseminate a timely warning as soon as pertinent information and resources are available. The Campus Security Authority is primarily responsible for issuing timely warnings. Timely warnings may be developed in partnership with appropriate campus departments, KCTCS Office of General Counsel, and KCTCS Safety and Emergency Services. The crime bulletin is reviewed and approved for release by Campus Security, Marketing and Communications, KCTCS Office of General Counsel or some combination. This collaboration is sometimes necessary when a bulletin for crimes of a more serious or immediate nature is needed to prepare consistent information for release on the website and/or digital signage to the campus community.

Maysville Community & Technical College is open to all for educational and cultural purposes. Hours of operations on the Main Campus during fall and spring semesters are:

  • All offices are open from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
  • Intercession and summer sessions hours are dependent on course offerings.
  • Special functions have specific arrangements based upon request.

KCTCS makes every effort to ensure that the campus facilities and grounds are designed and maintained to promote safety, prevent crime, and minimize hazardous conditions. Attention is paid to the design and maintenance of facilities, landscaping and exterior lighting. The Maintenance and Operations (M&O) Dept. maintains the buildings and grounds. Campus facilities are inspected on a regular basis and repairs impacting safety and security are made promptly. Campus M&O are mindful of security and safety concerns, keeping vegetation controlled around lighting fixtures and along campus walkways and roadways on a regular schedule. Strategies and concepts of crime prevention through environmental design are considered in the design and construction of new facilities.

M&O personnel regularly patrols the campus and reports malfunctioning lights and other unsafe physical conditions to M&O Supervisor for correction. We encourage community members to promptly report any security concern, including concerns about locking mechanisms, lighting, or landscaping to the Campus Security Authorities.

MCTC does not employ any professional or pastoral counselors.

KCTCS Drug and Alcohol Policy

KCTCS is committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for its students, faculty, and staff. KCTCS has defined conduct in relation to the unlawful possession, use, dispensation, distribution, or manufacture of alcohol or illicit drugs. Conduct which is in violation of this definition poses unacceptable risks and disregard for the health, safety, and welfare of members of the KCTCS community and shall result in disciplinary action up to and including suspension or termination.

As a recipient of federal grants and contracts, KCTCS gives this notice to students, faculty, and staff that it is in compliance with, and shall continue to be in compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendment of 1989. Students, faculty and staff are herein notified of the standards of conduct which shall be applicable while on KCTCS property, on KCTCS business, and/or at KCTCS sponsored activities.


Under KCTCS policies and procedures, students who violate this standard of conduct are subject to disciplinary action from a minimum of a warning to a maximum of suspension from KCTCS.

Faculty and staff are subject to disciplinary action from a minimum of a warning to a maximum of termination from KCTCS employment.

Under state and federal drug laws, the gravity of the sanction depends on the classification of the controlled substance, the particular activity involved (possession or trafficking which includes manufacture, sale, and possession with intent to sell), and whether or not multiple convictions are involved.

Under Kentucky law, the most severe penalty for a drug law violation involves trafficking. On a first offense conviction, one may receive a fine of up to $10,000.00 and/or a sentence of up to ten years in the penitentiary; for subsequent offenses, the penalties may be doubled.

Under federal law, for simple possession of a controlled substance, one may be imprisoned for up to one (1) year and/or fined up to $1,000.00. For subsequent offenses, one may be imprisoned for up to three (3) years and/or fined up to $5,000.00. Under federal law, one may be fined up to $8,000,000.00 and/or may be sentenced from not less than 10 years up to life in prison for drug trafficking. For violations of other federal drug laws, one may receive life in prison or the death penalty.

Under both state and federal laws, one may suffer the loss of whatever property (house, farm) or possessions (vehicle) which one may have used in the drug trade.

Sanctions for violation of state alcohol laws vary from a fine of $10.00 to $2,000.00, a sentence of forty-eight (48) hours to twelve (12) months in jail, and/or suspension of one's operator's license.

Students, faculty, staff, and visitors to campus are encouraged to annually review and be familiar with the KCTCS Sexual Misconduct Policy.

Review of this policy is required for faculty, staff, and student employees yearly for continued employment.


In compliance with the Federal Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000, KCTCS, through the Kentucky State Police, makes information available to the campus community concerning registered sex offenders who may be employees or students at your college.

The Kentucky State Police provides sex crime offender registration information to the public through the Sex Offender Registry website. Search the KSP Sex Offender Registry Website.

According to the Kentucky State Police, this website is for public safety and awareness. Pursuant to KRS 525.070 and 525.080, use of information from this website to harass a sex offender is a criminal offense punishable by up to 90 days in the county jail. More severe penalties apply for more severe crimes committed against a sex offender.

Relationship with Local Authorities

Whenever MCTC is the target of criminal activity, the decision to report such incidents to the local police is based on the severity of the matter and type of crime. We encourage the prompt reporting of criminal activity to local law enforcement, but the choice to make such a report remains with the victim. However, there are some criminal reports that must be reported to local police under state law, including cases of domestic violence and child abuse.

Programs about Campus Security Procedures and Crime Prevention

Annually we inform our students, faculty and staff about the Crime Log and College safety and security web site. Additionally, safety procedures are discussed at orientation for new students throughout the year. Personal safety and safety of possessions is stressed at orientation.

Campus Security Programs

  1. MCTC's Security Escort - Campus Security personnel will provide safe escort to students, faculty, and staff from one point on campus to another as requested.
  2. Orientation - An orientation for new students provides information for a broad range of issues related to college life, which includes safety and security issues. 
  3. Campus safety and security professional development sessions are offered to faculty and staff.
  4. Self Defense classes are offered throughout the year.
  5. Stop the Bleeding Classes offered.

Security and Crisis Management 

KCTCS Safety and Emergency Services assists Campus Security departments with developing, maintaining, and implementing emergency operations plans, developing and conducting exercises, hazard and risk education, and building partnerships with external response agencies. KCTCS Procedure 523-P is followed for Critical Incidents and other preparedness measures.

The System Office Crisis Management Team staffs the System Office Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and may be activated to provide resource and support services to college EOC, if needed. The System Office Crisis Management Team is equipped to provide the following services to colleges when requested:

  • Public and media relations support
  • Facilities support
  • Temporary alteration of administrative and business policies and procedures
  • Procurement of resource and support services
  • After-action incident evaluation

Not all incidents will require an activation of your EOC. For smaller, routine campus incidents response operations may be managed virtually by several members of your Crisis Management Team. 

Emergency Action Plans detailing evacuation routes are provided in every building and classroom on KCTCS campuses. 

KCTCS regularly works with local law enforcement to ensure any incidents reported in the area, that may affect the college, are communicated. 

Emergency Notification

KCTCS uses a Safety Notification Alert Process (SNAP) for communication information quickly. Students are automatically signed up when they enroll at an KCTCS college. Faculty, staff and interested individuals can sign up to receive SNAP messages online. 

In the event of an incident that requires the immediate notification to the campus community, a SNAP Alert will be issued, that will provide text, voice, broadcast and e-mail messages to all members of the college community.  Face-to-face communication will be used in the event technology fails.   

Each KCTCS College has a SNAP Team and uses a consultation approach to confirm there is a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of student or employees occurring on campus.  The college President is responsible for confirming an emergency, with the assistance of college administrators, local first responders and/or the national weather service.  Upon confirmation, the college will, without delay, and taking into account the safety of the community, determine the content of the notification and initiate the notification system, unless issuing a notification will in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to or otherwise mitigate the emergency. 

The KCTCS College team and/or designated personnel, when possible, will determine the content of the notification, considering the scope of the notification based on the segment of the community at risk (e.g. targeted areas, campus wide, building specific)

SNAP is not the only means the College uses to communicate emergency information to the College community. KCTCS Colleges may use their website, local TV, radio, newspaper, and various social media.

Follow-up information will be provided to the campus community using some or all of the systems described above. The larger community, parents, neighbors, and other interested parties can access emergency information through the college website or the media. 

Training, Drills, and Exercises

Each semester, the campuses conducts drills, exercises and appropriate follow-up training.  These activities are designed to improve emergency response on an ongoing basis. After action report briefings and corrective action plans are developed and conducted for each exercise or activation. Documentation of past exercises which include exercise descriptions, date, time, whether the exercise was announced/unannounced are available for review upon request. Contact the Safety and Security office for more information or to make a request. 

The IT Department documents and files each SNAP Alert test. This includes a description of the drill or exercise, date, time of test, and how the test was announced or it was unannounced.

Distribute Emergency Procedures

MCTC publishes the Campus Crisis Manuals on the College’s website. In addition, each classroom contains a visible Emergency Response Plan. This document is an abbreviated version of the Campus Crisis Manuals. The procedures include, accident reporting, acute emergency procedures, fire drill procedures, actual fire procedures, emergency exit plan details, tornado, earthquake, shots heard on campus, crime awareness and campus security, drug/alcohol abuse help information, violent incident procedures and emergency numbers


Disclosure and Format of Annual Crime Statistics

KCTCS Colleges maintain a Daily Crime Log of all crimes reported or investigated to the department for the most recent 60-day period. The information includes the date, time, location, nature of the crime and disposition of the complaint. The log is available in-person during normal business operations through the college's safety and security office. The log is also posted to the college website. In the event there is an issue with the electronic log at the college, KCTCS has a centralized site where crime log information can be obtained.

The Michael Minger Act is a Kentucky state law that requires public colleges and universities as well as private institutions licensed by the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) to report campus crimes to their employees, students and the public on a timely basis. 

Crime Statistics

The Clery Act requires each institution to disclose crime statistics that occur on three types of property: On Campus, Non-Campus, and Public Property areas.  The statistics must be gathered from campus security, local law enforcement, and campus security authorities.
