During the regular school year, LLCC is open to the public during these hours:
- Monday through Friday: 6:00 AM to 10:30 PM
- Saturday: 6:30 AM to 4:00 PM
During normal business hours, access is only denied to those who abuse the privilege of using campus facilities. After normal business hours, the campus is closed. Students are only allowed on campus after normal business hours with faculty or staff supervision and/or authorization.
All motor vehicles on campus are subject to all state motor vehicle laws as specified in the motor vehicle code and LLCC parking and traffic regulations. The college assumes no responsibility for loss or damage to private property.
All vehicles must park in spaces marked by white lines. Parking is not permitted on roadways, adjacent to curbs, or on the grass.
All traffic signs must be obeyed.
The responsibility of finding a legal parking space rests with the motor vehicle operator. Lack of space is not considered a valid excuse for violation of regulations.
In parking areas, a vehicle must be parked in only one space, leaving clear access to adjacent spaces and without blocking driving lanes or creating a hazard for other drivers.
Only persons with a physical disability requiring close access to the building and with a state-issued handicapped parking permit may park in the spaces marked “HANDICAPPED PARKING.”
Any motor vehicle parked in violation of college traffic regulations or abandoned on campus is subject to removal and impounding at the expense of the owner or operator. The term “abandonment,” as it relates to motor vehicles parked on LLCC property, shall mean any one or more of the following conditions:
- Any vehicle which has not been moved for three or more days without prior permission from the Police Department, and whose owner or other claimant the college is unable to locate.
- Any vehicle which has not been moved three or more days, and the identified owner or claimant has refused to move it.
- Any vehicle on which valid license plates are not displayed.
- Any vehicle which is in inoperative condition caused by the removal of necessary parts or a wrecked condition.
All motor vehicle and motorcycle accidents on campus should be immediately reported to the Police Department.

Racial Profile Statement
While the LLCC Police Department has no history of problems with biased enforcement, we feel it is important to assure the entire college community that Lincoln Land is committed to fair treatment of all individuals.
With this in mind, in 2001 the Department implemented a policy expressly prohibiting racial profiling and other bias-based policing. The Department is committed to observe, uphold, and enforce all laws relating to the individual rights of all persons. Department members respect and protect each person’s human rights and comply with all laws relating to human rights.
The LLCC policy goes beyond the human rights prescribed by law to state that LLCC will treat all persons with the courtesy and dignity inherently due every person as a human being. LLCC Police Department officers act, speak, and conduct themselves in a professional manner, and maintain a courteous professional attitude in all contacts. In addition, officers do not use the perceived or actual race, ethnicity, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, parental status, military discharge status, financial status, or lawful source of income of any person as the basis for developing reasonable suspicion or grounds for a traffic or street stop, or in deciding upon the scope and substance of post-stop actions.
All LLCC officers have taken a pledge to:
- Reject racial profiling
- Use sound police strategies based on reasonable suspicion, probable cause and the judicious use of police discretion
- Work toward continued development of positive campus relationships
Tracking Adherence to Policy
The LLCC Police Department gathers statistics pertaining to the officers’ perceptions of the race of all individuals involved in Illinois Vehicle Code enforcement activities. Officers record the data when completing a field inquiry card, traffic ticket, or warning ticket. Pertinent information is sent to the Illinois Department of Transportation for compilation.
LLCC will continue to monitor adherence to its policy prohibiting bias-based policing and is committed to the highest standards in upholding the human rights of all individuals.
