OFFICE OF SECURITY
Welcome to the Liberty Christian Academy Security Office. Our primary focus is the safety of our students and staff as well as the security of our LCA campus. Two full-time positions make up the security team; a Front Desk Receptionist and a campus Resource Officer.
As part of the secretarial staff, our Front Desk Receptionist handles a variety of duties. First and foremost, this desk is responsible for welcoming guests and visitors to LCA. This allows the receptionist to help monitor security by signing people in and finding out their purpose for being on our campus. When a visitor arrives at our main entrance, a photo is taken and each visitor is issued a pass to be worn for the duration of that visit.
The receptionist also operates the school’s main switch board and performs occasional clerical duties for the Office of Academy Relations. Scheduled tours begin at the front desk and all guests check in here between the hours of 8:20 and 3:00. All doors at LCA are locked during school hours, so the only access to our campus during the day is though the main entrance.
The School Resource Officer is also located in the Security Office. The officer is associated with Liberty University Police Department but also works on the LCA campus on a full-time basis, Monday through Friday, during the school year. This position is responsible for monitoring traffic in the morning for student drop off and again in the afternoon when students are dismissed.
The School Resource Officer helps to keep our parking lots safe and secure and also monitors the students in the hallways during transition times between classes and during the lunch shifts. This officer assists our Deans of Discipline with disciplinary issues as needed, but primarily handles any criminal activity that might be detected on the campus. Additionally, the Resource Officer attends the LCA home sports games and supervises security in those settings.
We are blessed to serve you and look forward to seeing you on your next visit to LCA.
