Campus Security

Kentucky Wesleyan College (hereinafter “Wesleyan” or the “College”) is concerned with the safety and wellbeing of its students and staff, and has contracted for security services to be provided by a private security agency. Uniformed security officers provide coverage during the evening and on weekends. Campus security, however, should be everyone’s concern. For the College to provide a safe campus, we must have the assistance and
cooperation of each and every person at Wesleyan.

You can help yourself and help us by always reporting suspicious people to your Resident Assistant or Resident Director, the Student Services Office, or some other College staff member. Report all broken locks, doors, windows and lights to your RA or RD or another appropriate person to Campus Security.

A few campus safety tips:
1) Do not breach security by propping open locked doors on campus buildings.
2) Always keep your room and car doors locked.
3) Don’t walk alone at night.
4) Never leave personal belongings unattended.

Students should report all incidents of campus crime (theft, assault, etc.) to their RA and RD (if they are a residential student) and the Student Services Office, as well as the Owensboro Police Department. Sexual assaults should be reported to the Title IX Officer. A complete listing of campus crime statistics is located on PantherNet and the Wesleyan website.

Faculty, Staff, and Students can contact Campus Security at 270-929-8609.
