At Delta, we take safety seriously. We are here to provide top-notch safety services by creating a secure place for you to reach your dreams.
As Delta College pursues a blend of face-to-face and online instruction during the coronavirus pandemic, please be assured that we are doing everything possible to safeguard the health of the campus community. The college has been working diligently to implement many campus-wide protocols and practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The Facilities Management staff has a plan to clean and sanitize open areas across campus. They will also put increased focus on high-touch point maintenance, which includes push plates, door handles, partition latches, hand rails, manual faucets and fixture handles and kitchenette sinks. This protocol is frequently used in medical and hospital environments.
Delta works very closely with Federal, State, County and all local law enforcement. Our officers are responsible for all law enforcement and security on campus and the four surrounding roads.
Our police officers are trained in the same manner as all other law enforcement officers in the State of Michigan and are certified through the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES). In other words, we've got your back.

AEDs (Automatic Emergency Defibrillators) are located in various locations around campus. The location of each AED is clearly marked on the wall above the device.
You will find other safety equipment such as emergency evacuation chairs located in stairwells across campus. These seats are designed to transport individuals with mobility challenges up and down stairs during emergency situations.
Evacuation and take shelter maps
Evacuation and take shelter maps are displayed across campus in hallways, classrooms and many meeting areas. Evacuation maps show the safest route to exit the building for fires and other emergency situations, while the take shelter maps identify areas inside the building that provide maximum protection for weather related emergencies.
You will find fire extinguishers and fire alarms located throughout the campus and are identified with a green sign on the wall above them.

In collaboration with the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration), the Department of Public Safety participates in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Unused or expired medications can be turned in to Delta College Public Safety Office during normal business hours for safe disposal. The service is free and anonymous.
The safety ambassador program at Delta College is a network of individuals identified to assist with safety related activities. Easily identified by their green vests, safety ambassadors play an active role in coordinating all fire and take shelter drills on campus. Additionally, each ambassador maintains a supply of first aid items such as band aids in their work area which can be distributed to students, employees and visitors. Safety ambassadors can be identified in their work area by a red badge located next to their office name plate.
To get your student ID card, you must come to the Department of Public Safety and bring your current class schedule, along with your driver’s license or State Identification card. The first student ID is free and any additional, or replacement student ID cards, cost $5, which is payable at the Cashier’s Office.
Students may contact Public Safety to request the opening of a locked classroom. The student must be authorized by their instructor on a list at the Department of Public Safety. The student could then have access to check out a key for the day.
Contact the Department of Public Safety, either in person or by phone. You will need to give the dispatcher your name, location and a description of your vehicle, and an officer will escort you safely to your vehicle.
