They are sworn in through the jurisdictional circuit court and are empowered to enforce all state and local laws on campus and adjacent properties. They have full authority to arrest and carry firearms. All officers are certified in first aid/CPR/AED and can provide quick medical attention on campus whenever needed.

    Officers respond to, investigate, and report all crimes and incidents for proper action. To prevent crime and enforce college policies, officers provide routine vehicle and foot patrols, enforce parking regulations and issue parking violation tickets,and provide escort service for individuals to vehicles when required or requested.

    The college publishes an Annual Security Report, available by Oct. 1 of each calendar year, in support of and pursuant to 20 United States Code section 1092(f), the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.
