JJC's new and improved police station is located on the southwest side of campus in G- Building, just south of the Fitness Center. The Police Dispatch Center is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week for emergencies and non- emergencies.

Student success and safety is a community effort. We need you, the members of the JJC community, to be our eyes and ears, to report incidents of a criminal or suspicious nature, and to keep us informed. Together, we can accomplish our mission.

Every year, JJC creates a Clery Report. It includes crime statistics, a fire safety report and policy statements.
Emergency messages will be sent when a situation poses an immediate risk to the health and safety of the campus community, disrupts programs and/or activities, or results in the closing of a campus, center or facility. Emergency messages will also be sent when severe weather results in the closing of campuses or centers and the cancellation of classes and activities.
The college uses many methods of communication during an emergency to ensure that emergency messages reach as many people as possible:
- PA/loudspeaker system
- JJC website
- College E-mail
- JJC alert, an emergency alert system capable of delivering messages to your JJC and personal email addresses, as well as your cell and home phones.
- Campus digital TV monitors
- Facebook and Twitter
- Local radio/TV outlets
- Chicagoland Emergency School Closings website
Note: Not all methods are used in each situation
For questions on emergency communication, contact the Communications and External Relations Office at (815) 280-2915, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Campus Police at (815) 280-2234.
Emergency Response Plan
The Emergency Response Plan (ERP) has been designed to provide a contingency manual for Joliet Junior College staff in order to plan for possible campus emergencies. While the plan does not cover every conceivable situation, it does supply the basic guidelines necessary to cope with most campus emergencies.
An Emergency Response Plan combined with occupant familiarity with a building, minimizes threats to life and property. This ERP is intended to communicate the policies and procedures for occupants to follow in an emergency situation.
