The approval and issuance of a Christian County Campus Access Card (CAC) is a privilege extended as a cooperative effort of the Christian County Sheriff’s Office, Christian County Commissioners, Christian County Prosecutor’s Office, and the Missouri 38th Circuit Judicial Court.
The Campus Access Card Program is extended primarily to officers of the court (Attorneys) who are in good standing. The Sheriff may consider approving CAC program participation to individuals who meet the requirements listed in the subsections below and can demonstrate a frequency of visits and a need for expedited access.
The purpose of the program is:
- To screen candidates for the CAC program to bypass the metal detectors and X-Ray machines to enter secure areas of Christian County Campus facilities.
- To create a uniform, secure medium for the identification and monitoring of individuals who are in good standing with the offices of the Christian County Government.
- To ensure compliance of the CAC Program’s Policies and Procedures by CAC participants.
If approved by the Sheriff a CAC participant may utilize the county employee turnstiles at an Entry Control Point (ECP), permitting the CAC participant to enter a secured area without having their person or articles automatically subjected to a search. (per CCSO Policy 1100 )
