“Yesterday afternoon, JCCC police officers apprehended a male suspect after the individual allegedly used an electronic device to take photos of a female in the women’s restroom on the second floor of OCB. The suspect is neither a student nor an employee of Johnson County Community College. He was transported to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department for booking and released to the custody of the Johnson County Adult Detention facility. The criminal case will be sent to the Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office for review and filing of criminal charges against the suspect. The safety and security of our students, faculty and staff is of utmost importance. We can all be proud of the quick work done by our police department to bring this situation to an end.
“JCCC has a number of systems and practices in place to help keep our students and employees safe. We also have established close relationships with local law enforcement. Our KOPS (Keeping Our People Safe) program is an excellent resource. Remember our motto: ‘If you see something, say something.’ ”
