Safety Department of Mott Community College works to prevent crimes
from occurring rather than react to them after the fact. MCC has
a comprehensive Crime Prevention program which is based upon the
dual concepts of eliminating or minimizing criminal opportunities,
whenever possible, and encouraging the college community to be responsible
for their own security and the security of others.

to assuring that students are able to complete their studies

a campus awareness program, and to provide education
resources and assistance to students. For more information
