The mission of Central Wyoming College Campus Security is to enhance the quality of life at Central by providing a safe and secure environment that is conducive to learning, while building community partnerships that foster trust, mutual respect and cooperation.
ALICE [Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate] training has been extremely beneficial for our campus employees and partner organizations in the community. It is scenario based training that prepares a person for instances of a violent intruder.”
Dave Hockett, Campus Security Officer
805 community members, 55 organizations, 134 students, 170 staff members trained as of December 2019.
This hands-on training has empowered folks and taught them to think through what they would do if faced with a violent intruder. It is a great training.”
Chuck Carr, Director of Campus Security
