LSC Safety Protocols: We encourage you to familiarize yourself with Lone Star’s safety protocols and think about what you would do in the event of an incident. Please take the time to review the recommendations in the LSC Active Shooter Community Guidelines and watch the linked “Run, Hide, Fight” video. Your response on the campus, in a theater, mall, restaurant, or any other public area might save your life and those around you. If you are aware of any unusual activity or threats, please notify the Police Department immediately. The Lone Star College Police Department trains and is prepared for any number of possibilities, and our department is in close contact with local enforcement agencies. The first few minutes of any incident are the most critical. Again, having a plan and knowing your options may save your life.
