Campus Safety

Campus Safety is staffed 24 hours a day year-round by specially-trained professionals who serve the campus community.

A safe and welcoming campus

Jewell's Campus Safety officers are visible throughout campus, ensuring the safety and security of all members of the Jewell community. Upon request, a night Campus Safety officer will provide rides from any parking lot to any residence hall if a student feels unsafe. Liberty police and fire departments are located in close proximity to campus and offer a fast response time if needed.

Jewell's Director of Campus Safety Landon Jones has conducted security audits and assessments on many facilities throughout the country. He holds a master’s degree in security management from American Military University, is a board-certified Physical Security Professional by the American Society of Industrial Security and offers expertise in physical security as well as collaborating with diverse communities to develop creative safety measures for unique and challenging environments.

Emergency Alert Notification

A mass alert system allows us to quickly communicate in the case of emergencies. The system integrates with our My Jewell database, so you may sign up easily once you have your student account. During Orientation, you will receive information on signing up in addition to several reminders throughout the year as we administer test alerts.

William Jewell is committed to protecting the safety and security of our campus community. Being prepared and knowing where to go is critical because disasters and emergencies can happen at any time. View our Emergency Preparedness Plan.
