Emergency Notification

Upon confirmation that a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of students or employees is occurring on campus or on nearby city streets, CCS will provide notification to the campus community. Please see the complete Emergency Notification Policy in the College's Policy Database.

Card Access to Campus Facilities

CCS’s SmART Card for academic and residential buildings is intended to provide greater security and access control throughout the campus. Students, faculty and staff are required to present a CCS identification card directly in front of a proximity reader or, during regular business hours, must show the identification card to Campus Safety personnel upon request. Authorized cardholders will be granted access. Proximity readers can detect when a reader-controlled door is forced or held open. If a door is forced or held open for too long, it will alert Campus Safety. Card access falls under the umbrella of Campus Safety and is subject to the rules and regulations of Campus Safety relative to access privileges.

The CCS campus is designed to serve the needs of the CCS community, and several areas of the campus are open to the public as well. These areas include the CCS galleries, the CCS Bookstore, and certain dining facilities among other locations. The Conference Center located on the 11th floor of the Taubman Center is often used as a public venue, in which case a member of the safety staff is stationed in the lobby to monitor entry and exit by members of the public.

Building security is the responsibility of the entire community; please do not treat it lightly. If you observe a door that is propped open, close it and advise the Campus Safety Dispatch Office at 313-664-7444 (or 1444). If you are issued keys, be aware of the responsibility that comes with them. A missing key could be used by anyone at any time. CCS residence halls and campus buildings are accessible with a CCS ID card. If your CCS ID card is lost or stolen, please report it to Campus Safety immediately. Your missing card will need to be deactivated to prevent someone who finds it from gaining unauthorized access to CCS buildings. Campus Safety will issue you a new card to replace your lost or stolen card.

*On-Campus Residence crimes are included in the On-Campus numbers

** The College may withhold, or subsequently remove, a reported crime from its crime statistics in the rare situation where sworn or commissioned law enforcement personnel have fully investigated the reported crime and, based on the results of this full investigation and evidence, have made a formal determination that the crime report is false or baseless and therefore “unfounded.” Only sworn or commissioned law enforcement personnel may “unfound” a crime report. The recovery of stolen property, the low value of stolen property,  the refusal of the victim to cooperate with criminal prosecution, or the failure to make an arrest do not “unfound” a crime report.

Hate Crimes

The College discloses in its annual security report statistics for the three most recent calendar years concerning the number of hate crimes that occurred on or within the College’s Clery Geography and that are reported to local police agencies or to a CCS Campus Security Authority. The College discloses the number of the following crimes that are determined to be hate crimes: murder and nonnegligent manslaughter; negligent manslaughter; rape; fondling; incest; statutory rape; robbery; aggravated assault; burglary; motor vehicle theft; arson; larceny-theft; simple assault; intimidation; destruction/damage/vandalism of property; dating violence; domestic violence; and stalking. If any such crimes are determined to be hate crimes, the College will (1) identify by type of crime the number of crimes that are determined to be hate crimes and (2) identify the category of bias that motivated the crime (i.e., the victim’s actual or perceived race, gender, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin, or disability).

2017:     No crimes determined to be Hate Crimes
2016:     No crimes determined to be Hate Crimes
2015:     No crimes determined to be Hate Crimes

Daily Crime & Fire Log

The Office of Campus Safety maintains a written, easily understood daily crime and fire safety log that meets all Clery Act requirements. The daily crime log records, by the date the crime was reported, any crime that occurred within the relevant Clery Geography and that is reported to Campus Safety. The log includes the nature, date, time, and general location of each crime and the disposition of the complaint, if known. As required by regulation, the Office of Campus Safety makes an entry or an addition to an entry to the log within two business days of the report of the information to Campus Safety, unless that disclosure is prohibited by law or would jeopardize the confidentiality of the victim. CCS may withhold information from the daily crime log if there is clear and convincing evidence that the release of the information would jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation or the safety of an individual, cause a suspect to flee or evade detection, or result in the destruction of evidence. CCS will not disclose information that would cause an adverse effect, and CCS will disclose any information withheld once the adverse effect is no longer likely to occur.

A log covering the past 60 days is available for public inspection upon request, by contacting the Director of Campus Safety at 313-664-1440, during normal business hours. Campus Safety will make any portion of the log that is older than 60 days available for inspection within two business days of a request. For purposes of this section, “business day” means Monday through Friday, excluding any day when the institution is closed.
