Prevention Programs

The Public Safety Department of Mott Community College works to prevent crimes from occurring rather than react to them after the fact. MCC has a comprehensive Crime Prevention program which is based upon the dual concepts of eliminating or minimizing criminal opportunities, whenever possible, and encouraging the college community to be responsible for their own security and the security of others.

3P Club. Prevent, Protect & Prosecute Violence Against Women

Mott Community College is committed to assuring that students are able to complete their studies in a safe environment – whether on-campus or off-campus. In 2004, the college in collaboration with the University of Michigan-Flint received a grant from the Department of Justice to initiate the “3P Club”– Prevent, Protect and Prosecute Violence Against Women. One of the goals of this initiative is to develop and implement a campus awareness program, and to provide education resources and assistance to students.
