The mission of Wallace Community College’s Campus Police Department is to provide a safe environment for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors by detecting and deterring crime, the fear of crime on campus, securing and protecting College property, and providing a variety of proactive programs/information on crime prevention and safety. We accomplish this mission through officer visibility on campus, training for our employees, and a commitment to professional and courteous service. Wallace Community College’s Campus Police Department is responsible for providing direct and general security services to the campus population. These services include, but are not limited to, the protection of life and property, maintaining a safe environment for student, faculty, staff and visitors, reduction of opportunities for the commission of crime, responding to emergencies and the identification of offenders and criminal activity.
In addition, Wallace Community College’s Campus Police Department has primary responsibility for providing continuous patrol coverage and traffic operations on campus property.
No amount of police, lighting or electronic security measures can ensure your safety. The ultimate responsibility for your safety rests with you. Use common sense and precautions for your safety on and off campus. Report incidents and cooperate with investigations when an issue of safety is involved. This will increase campus safety and your experience as a member of the Wallace Community College community.
