Safe Environment - Houston Campus

The College of Biblical Studies is committed to the safety of our students and staff. Our priority is to create a campus environment in which people are safe from physical harm and property is secure, in a manner that meets or exceeds federal, state and local laws, as well as CBS policies that regulate these matters. It is the intent of CBS to provide a safe and secure environment for students, visitors, and others with whom we serve. 

Security

To support the CBS security department, the College employs Professional Guard Patrol Security. This department accomplishes its mission through excellence in policing, safety, and security. Professional Guard Patrol and local police are the primary response agencies for all crimes and incidents on campus, including emergency assistance, investigating, and documenting incidents. CBS security is the liaison with local police, fire, and medical response agencies. CBS security may be reached during normal business hours at 281-448-4900 or 713-545-8602.

Parking & Security Escort to Vehicles

Students should park in designated parking spaces on the main campus parking lots where the lighting is the most efficient. Security escorts are provided during hours of operation for any reason by calling 713-545-8602.

CBS Watchman Alert System

The CBS Watchman Alert System uses text, e-mail, and voice messages to alert CBS students and employees in the event of an emergency or urgent situation. Alert messages are sent to registered mobile phones, home phones, and e-mail addresses. 

 Crisis Management App

The Crisis Manager mobile application for the College of Biblical Studies (CBS) makes our emergency information more readily accessible. The average smartphone/tablet user has their mobile device close to them most of the time. During an emergency, it is often intuitive to pick up your mobile device. This customized app places CBS emergency information onto a single platform designed to help guide our staff and students through an emergency event.

This free app provides preparedness/response procedures and emergency contacts behind easily identifiable icons that are categorized by the type of event or emergency situation. This app will provide the CBS family easy access to our Emergency Guide (tiles), which, once downloaded to the device, is not dependent on internet access. 

Some of the features included in the app are; simple formatted instructions, intuitive graphics, direct dial emergency contacts (smartphones only), a flashlight tool for mobile devices that support it, an audio alarm to alert others of your location if you are in danger or trapped and a space to input your personalized emergency information such as evacuation routes and meeting locations.

Active Shooter Training and Drills

Training videos are offered on our website to be viewed anytime. CBS conducts scheduled drills to simulate an on-campus active shooter. These drills will not only prepare CBS staff and faculty, but will also allow the Houston Police Department (HPD) to familiarize themselves with the layout of our campus should they ever need to answer such a call.
