Security Internship Program

The safety/security officer intern program kicked off in 2003-'04 on the Jackson Community College campus. These students are participating in hands-on training as safety/security officer interns through classroom and patrol activity experience.

Safety/security interns provide high visibility throughout campus, in fixed and roving positions, with an emphasis on personal contact and service, not law enforcement. Their training equips them with natural surveillance skills for an assortment of situations.

These uniformed members of security assist in providing a wide range of security duties, including: preventative patrols; recording and reporting of any crime and/or damage to any College property or persons; enforcement of the College’s parking and other regulations. They are trained to provide assistance in first aid response and conflict resolution.

For more information regarding the safety/security officer interns program at JCC, contact Jeff Whipple, campus safety officer, at 517.796.8683 or Tom Fleming, professor, at 517.796.8525.
