Parking & Emergency Procedures
Parking can be a different experience for everyone. Some GTCC employees work in buildings off-campus where parking may not be an issue, however, for many employees working on-campus, parking is an important consideration.
A current GTCC parking permit is required for each vehicle parked on campus by GTCC employees and students.
Parking permits are issued as follows:
- The President’s Office issues parking permits to all trustees and foundation directors.
- The GTCC Human Resources Office will issue an employee permit to all employees and will be valid until the end of employment. Upon request, an employee may be issued one additional tag for a second vehicle.
- Full-time regular employees will be issued permanent tag permits.
- Part-time or temporary faculty/staff will be issued permits valid for one year and renewable each year.
- Department heads may pick up tags for their part-time personnel but will be responsible for seeing that the registration cards are completed and returned to Campus Police, as the numbers on these tags will be initially checked out to the Department Head.
If you need help finding a specific lot or parking garage, a parking map for the various campus locations can be found under the DISCOVER GTCC tab.
IF YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY, CALL 9 – 911 from any campus phone.
Campus Police Emergency Number: 50911
The GTCC Campus Police Department is a full service department handling the enforcement and investigation of all crimes committed on campus property. Personnel within GTCC Campus Police wear many different hats as they handle parking and traffic control and enforcement, ticketing and towing of vehicles, building security through the locking and unlocking of campus buildings, response to burglar and fire alarms on campus and serve as emergency first responders.
The GTCC Campus Police Department is staffed by twenty-five full time personnel. The department consists of one chief, two sergeants, one corporal, an administrative assistant and twenty-one (21) officers. The department also uses some part-time, non-sworn security officers to augment the department and provide relief on the weekends. Sworn personnel are certified police officers within the State of North Carolina who have the power of arrest and are certified through the N.C. Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission within the Department of Justice. Officers enforce college, state and federal regulations. They can arrest for any offense committed within their jurisdiction. Their jurisdiction consists of college property and all roads that pass through or adjacent to the campus.
GTCC offers a service that will notify you by text or email when we have an emergency situation, inclement weather or other situation that impacts the campus or entire college community.
a. Emergency procedures are to be followed only in cases of an act of misconduct which presents an immediate threat to the health, safety, or well-being of any member of the college community or of any visitor, or which seriously disrupts the function and good order of the college or which damages or threatens to damage property on college premises.
b. If any college employee observes student(s) conduct which threatens the health, safety or well-being of any member of the college community or of any visitor or threatens damage to property, the employee may select a course of action from the following:
1) Summon a Campus Police Officer by dialing 50911 and requesting Campus Police assistance; or
2) If, in the judgment of the employee, the situation presents immediate danger and no Campus Police Officer is available, she/he may summon assistance from the law enforcement agency which has jurisdiction in that area; (e.g. Greensboro Police Department, Guilford County Sheriff’s Department, High Point City Police Department).Instruct the student(s) to cease and desist and that failure to do so will result in immediate suspension
Accidents and all other incidents relating to the safety of persons and the protection of property shall be reported to the appropriate Campus Police Officer.
Preventive safety measures are the responsibility of all faculty and staff members. Faculty and staff shall continuously monitor their working areas to detect existing or potentially unsafe work practices and/or conditions. Such work practices or conditions will be promptly reported to the Chief of Campus Police.
- Any person involved in or observing an accident resulting in personal injury or damage to property must report the accident as soon as possible to the Campus Police Officer serving that location.
- An injured employee must report the accident/injury both to Campus Police and to his/her respective supervisor.
