Safety & Security
Campus Security Personnel
Rose State College security is provided by contract officers and the Midwest City Police Department (MWCPD). The contract officers are on duty 24/7 and are responsible for ensuring the daily security of campus facilities and grounds. They are fully CLEET certified and provide parking and traffic control, building access, continuous monitoring of the campus closed circuit security camera system, and special security requests, such as security escort. Contract security officers do not have law enforcement authority, nor do they provide investigation of criminal activity on campus.
MWCPD officers have full law enforcement authority as authorized by the State of Oklahoma, and have authority to conduct investigations into criminal activity and egregious violations of college policy involving students, staff or faculty. Their jurisdiction includes all property owned or controlled by the college, as well as streets adjacent to and running through the college campus.
Additionally, Rose State College cooperates fully with the Midwest City Police Department, the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Department, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, and other state and federal law enforcement agencies. These agencies routinely exchange crime-related reports and statistics and conduct cooperative patrols, special events, investigations, and special unit operations.
Campus Security Authorities (CSAs) are individuals who have responsibility for campus security but who do not work for MWCPD or officials who have significant responsibility for student and campus activities, including, but not limited to, student activities, student discipline and campus judicial proceedings.

Contract Security Staff
Access to academic and administrative facilities is generally limited to students, employees and visitors for the purpose of studying, working, teaching and conducting other college business. However, as buildings stay open and accessible beyond normal business hours for classes, meetings and public events, visitors may also gain access during those hours.
All facilities are maintained and closely monitored in the interest of campus security. Contract security staff and Midwest City law officers regularly patrol the campus and report unsafe conditions and malfunctioning lights or equipment to the Operations Department for correction. Other members of the College community are encouraged to report equipment problems to the Security Office or to the Operations Department.
