MacMurray College's Security Office is outsourced to Synergy Corporation, through which we provide around-the-clock security. One officer is on duty during each shift Monday - Sunday. The officer completes rounds of the campus, responds to incidents as they arise, and locks/unlocks any buildings and offices as needed. If other issues of security arise, students are encouraged to contact the Director of Campus Safety & Housing, Resident Assistants (RAs), Resident Directors (RDs) or Student Safety Aides (SSAs).
MacMurray also has Student Safety Aides (SSAs) through a Criminal Justice internship class who provide many services such as campus escorts, campus patrol, assisting Student Life staff during incidents and monitoring the surveillance cameras as well as the MacSAFE dispatch center. Students and parents can download the MacSAFE smartphone app that is used as our notification system and mobile safety app in case students need help. Campus emergencies and alerts are also disseminated via the app as well as through campus email. Security is required to update the Annual Security Report and the Emergency Plan yearly.
