A Message from the Chief:

Hello and welcome to our campus. The SMCC Police Department is a team of professionals working to provide a safe and secure environment in which the educational mission of the college can be fully realized. Our officers and staff are service-oriented and committed to the safety and well-being of those associated with SMCC.

We provide crime prevention and control, criminal investigation, traffic and parking supervision, disaster coordination, maintenance of public order, and other related law enforcement services.

We work closely with the Vice President of Student Affairs Office to ensure the policies and procedures of SMCC, as well as state and local laws, are uniformly executed and conveyed in a clear and consistent manner to our students, faculty and staff.

The SMCC Police Department’s primary mission and responsibility is to provide visible, professional, and courteous service for all students, employees, and visitors while on our campus. We will enforce SMCC policies, procedures and regulations, and all state and local laws.

Officers are in constant radio communication with Central Dispatch as well as all surrounding law enforcement agencies. Our office is located on the north side of the Brumfield Building on College Drive (south of the lake) and officers are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays.
