Safety Measures

24/7 Campus Security Personnel

Security staff are present 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Security staff perform routine inspections of campus buildings, both academic and residential.

Emergency Notification System

TFC uses an emergency alert notification system that distributes time sensitive information to students, faculty, and staff. Emergency alerts are sent for dangerous weather, incidents of violence, or messages deemed credible to distribute via the system. Alerts are distributed via phone call, text message, and email.

Campus Surveillance Systems

There are security cameras located all across campus on the exterior of every building and the interior of some buildings. All vehicles that enter the campus of TFC are recorded through the taking of a still image and footage of vehicle identification.

Campus Building Security

Room locations in academic and administrative buildings are outfitted with security mechanisms to control access. Women’s Residence Halls include key coded or key card entry.

Behavior Intervention Team

Key campus departments from multi-functional areas come together on a routine basis to discuss and provide follow-up for students who are identified as having demonstrated concerning behavior or are experiencing difficult circumstances that could lead to problematic behavior. This review is based on an established protocol and within best practices from across the country as it relates to behavior intervention. The team receives reports from anyone in/outside of the college community, discusses known behavior from various contact points across the college, and determines the best set of solutions to support/protect/respond/intervene.
