The Metropolitan Community College Police department (MCC Police) was established in October 2010 in response to a National trend of public postsecondary schools having dedicated law enforcement agencies, providing a quicker response time to incidents and offering college-specific services. MCC Police has the primary jurisdiction and responsibility to investigate crimes and provide police services for MCC locations within the four-county service area. Police Officers are located at the Elkhorn Valley, Fort Omaha and South Omaha Campuses and the various Centers as needed. MCC Police is available 24 hours a day, seven days per week, including holidays.
MCC Police is recognized by the Nebraska Commission of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice as a Law Enforcement Agency; therefore, Police Officers are commissioned and certified as Nebraska Law Enforcement Officers. MCC Police Officers are also appointed by the Governor of the State of Nebraska as Special Deputy State Sheriffs to enforce the laws of the state on all properties under the jurisdiction, supervision, or control of the Board of Governors of the Metropolitan Community College Area, wherever such properties may be, and any City and County where such properties are located.
The department also employs civilian Public Safety Officers whose primary purpose is to provide security. Public Safety Officers are not armed and do not have arrest powers (non-commissioned); however, they undergo training in security, life safety and handling situations with which they may be called to respond.
Every month, MCC Police provides its Uniform Crime Report to the Nebraska Crime Commission as required for the inclusion of crime statistics published by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The mission of the MCC Police is to provide a safe environment for students, faculty and staff that enhances the educational mission of MCC. Prevention of crime is a priority at all MCC educational sites.
MCC Police Department services include, but not limited to:
- Enforce state statutes and city ordinances

Active Shooter Response — Options To Consider
The video in the link below is produced by the U.S. Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and is less than ten minutes in length. The CISA "Options for Consideration Active Shooter Training Video" demonstrates possible actions that individuals can take if confronted with an active shooter scenario. This instructive video reviews the choices of running, hiding, or as an option of last resort, fighting the shooter. The video also shows how to assist authorities once law enforcement arrives.
