Dear College Community,
Within the past several months, a heightened concern has emerged on college campuses throughout the country in reference to what the campus safety community calls an “active shooter” incident.
Following review of possible strategies, Atlantic Cape is making provisions to add armed security on our campuses to enhance the College’s active shooter response.
The safety of our students, faculty, staff and public while on campus is the College’s top priority. Under the direction of Dean Eileen Curristine and Director of Security and Public Safety William Keener, Atlantic Cape has been a safe place. Nevertheless, this strategy will serve to enhance our prevention and response efforts. To further protect the safety of our community, we are not sharing specific details of the security plan.
I am confident this enhancement will put our Security and Public Safety Department in a better position to keep you and our college community safe.
Dr. Peter Mora
