Official Security Notices
Indian River State College takes its duty seriously to inform students, employees and community members of threatening situations. In the event of a substantiated serious security or safety concern, either on College property or in the near vicinity of an IRSC campus, a timely warning notice will be issued to provide information and recommendations in compliance with the federal Clery Act.
From email to IRSC Students and Employees from President Dr. Timothy Moore:
Indian River State College is committed to the safety and security of our students, faculty, staff, and guests. As such, it is critical that I alert you that an incident occurred on Saturday night at a location adjacent to our Massey Campus in Fort Pierce. No injuries were reported, and there was no damage to campus property.
IRSC is working with the City of Ft. Pierce to maintain an increased police presence near the incident site on 30th Street. We have also stepped up the presence of IRSC Campus Public Safety personnel on Massey Campus. The safety of our IRSC family is paramount.
The Campus will be open to normal operations on Monday morning. The incident remains under investigation by Fort Pierce Police.
This opportunity reminds us that we must all be vigilant and SAY something if we SEE something. By reporting suspicious behavior, people, and situations, we can provide a safe and more secure College environment. Please report emergencies to 9-1-1, and notify Campus Public Safety at 772-462-4755 or 7777 or 4755 from any campus phone.

Annual Report of Crime Statistics

This ASR must include statistics of campus crime for the preceding three (3) calendar years, plus details about efforts taken to improve campus safety.
