Thank you LCC Police for keeping campus safe

Yesterday at 1:50 p.m., LCC received a call from Dewitt Police Department regarding a potential threat to LCC. Over the next several minutes, the LCC Police Department, in collaboration with local law enforcement partners in Eaton County and the Lansing Police Department, further assessed the validity of the threat to be credible. Based on the threat timeline, Police determined to evacuate three locations for the safety of students and employees.

At 2:16 p.m., Police issued alerts by email and text, and issued an alert over the public address system to evacuate the Downtown, East and West campus locations.

Due to the quick and thorough work of our LCC police and law enforcement partners, a suspect was apprehended by 3:01 p.m. and the campus locations were deemed safe. We would like to thank the Eaton County and Lansing Police Departments, as well as the person who called in the tip.

This is an instance of if you see something, say something in action.
