Campus Police and Security
When you're on campus at SCC, you can have peace of mind that campus police are working to keep you safe.
The Spartanburg Community College Campus Police Department employs full-time officers, who are graduates of the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy, and commissioned as state constables. Campus security is contracted to an outside security agency, which provides the college with on-campus security 24 hours a day. All security officers are registered with the S.C. Law Enforcement Division and are authorized by South Carolina law (Title 40, Chapter 17) to arrest anyone violating the state's laws.
The Campus Police and Security departments are visible on campus as officers patrol on foot and in marked vehicles around the clock. Officers are responsible for a full-range of services, including all on-campus crime reports and investigations, crime prevention programs, traffic accident reports and emergency medical responses. All Campus Police and Security officers are certified in first aid and CPR. While on duty, all officers are equipped with radio-telephones, which allows them direct contact with everyone on the campus, as well as county police, fire, rescue and EMS units.
A total of 15 officers patrol SCC campuses, including outsourced security personnel.
