Individuals issued college keys/prox cards shall at all times be held responsible and accountable for them.

Keys/prox cards are issued in the Security Department upon approval by the appropriate administrator. Individuals issued a key/prox card will be required to sign for them.

Keys/prox cards are to be used exclusively by the individual to whom they are issued.

Employees must inform their administrator and Security immediately and in writing of any lost keys/prox cards. A reasonable cost may be charged for each key that is not returned/found. If re-keying is necessary because of the loss or compromised security, the individual’s department budget may be charged.

Employees who terminate their employment at CPTC must return their keys/prox cards to Security on or before their last working day. A reasonable cost may be charged for each key that is not returned/found.

Keys/prox cards may be authorized for contractors and other non-CPTC individuals. The return of all keys/prox cards is the responsibility of the firm or group to which they were issued.

Keys/prox cards are state property and may be recovered at any time by security staff or an employee’s supervisor. The college will conduct periodic key/prox card audits.
