Crime Response and Prevention

Campus Safety requires that calls involving crimes against persons and life/safety issues, such as fire or injury, will receive priority response from the department.

Any crime in progress shall be handled by a commissioned law enforcement officer. The primary response will be handled by the Canton Police Department. The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office and the Missouri State Highway Patrol may be a source of secondary response in an emergency situation that involves crimes in progress or acts that exhibit high potential for violence or serious bodily injury.

Reports on criminal acts not in progress or general assistance requests are taken by Campus Safety officers.


Awareness is a vital part to crime prevention. Students, faculty, staff and visitors can stay informed about criminal incidents at Culver-Stockton College by reading the Daily Crime Logs or Safety Alerts.

Safety Alerts are distributed to Culver-Stockton College community in effort to keep the community informed and to raise awareness of crimes that occur on or near campus. Alerts are distributed by campus e-mail and posted in public, common areas for viewing in residence halls, sororities, fraternities, academic, administrative and athletic facilities.

Campus Safety maintains a Daily Crime Log in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Safety Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.  Persons may view a copy of the crime log at the director of campus safety office during normal business hours (8 a.m. - 5 p.m.).
