Carthage students often say that Carthage offers the best of both worlds. The downtown areas of Kenosha and Racine are just minutes away, and Chicago and Milwaukee are just an hour’s drive. But campus itself is a tranquil, safe, 80-acre arboretum nestled on parkland along the shore of Lake Michigan.
The Carthage College Security Department is committed to keeping our campus safe, peaceful, and well-organized. Carthage Security operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Security provides parking lot shuttle service, event management support, event security, parking and traffic control, and building security. In addition, Security officers are trained in first aid, CPR, and the use of Automatic External Defibrillators.
Carthage College Security responds to:
- Medical emergencies
- Vehicle accidents
- Reports of theft
- Lost and found property
- All other service requests concerning the safety and security of our campus community
The Security Department strives to promote a safe environment in which our community members can live and learn during their time at Carthage. Read the Security Department’s Mission Statement
