6.1 Key Control
The purpose of this policy is to provide for the protection of the property of the College, faculty, staff, and students against loss through fire, vandalism, theft or misuse, by issuing keys under reasonable safeguards with a complete record kept at all times.
The issuance of keys is limited to authorized employees only. Requests for keys must be approved by the appropriate college officials. The Director of Security and Safety will maintain direct control of issuing keys and will review all key requests with the Director of Physical Plant.
The line of approval necessary for the issuance of a key to internal secured doors shall be:
- Department Chairperson/Director
- Director of Security and Safety
- Director of Physical Plant
Keys to external doors shall be extremely limited due to safety and security considerations. Access to secured buildings requires prior notification to the Office of Security and Safety at any time outside the College's regular hours of operation.
