The mission of the WCCS Campus Police Department is to work with all members of the campus community to preserve life, maintain human rights, protect property, promote individual responsibility and fulfill community commitments.
We are committed to enhancing the quality of life on campus by working cooperatively with the public and within the framework of the constitution to enforce the laws, preserve the peace, reduce fear, and provide for a safe environment.
As our mission, we believe in the dignity and worth of all people. We are committed to providing high-quality, community-oriented, sensitive police service that protects constitutional rights, excels in problem solving, promotes teamwork, transparency, and a system of checks and balances as a department. We continuously assess the policies and procedures for areas of improvement and provide leadership to the police profession. We encourage and seek diversity in our work force, which permits us to grow in our respect and understanding of individual differences, and utilize those understandings to better protect the public. We strive for a safe, healthy work force.
We strive to provide a safe environment for students, faculty, staff and other campus visitors. A person who is not a student, officer, or employee of the institution, who is not authorized by employment or by status as a student of the institution to be on campus or at any other facility owned, operated, or controlled by the governing board of the institution, or who does not have legitimate business on the campus or facility, or any other authorization, license, or invitation to enter or remain at the facility, or anyone who is committing any act tending to interfere with the normal, orderly, peaceful, or efficient conduct or activities of WCCS, may be directed by a campus police officer to leave the campus or facility. If the person fails to do so, trespass charges may be pursued by the Campus Police.
We desire to inform all students, staff, and faculty members of the policies and procedures for safety and security at WCCS. This information is published by the WCCS Campus Police Department to meet requirements outlined in Public Law 101-542, the Jeanne Clery Act. It is our wish to keep the campus community informed of any criminal activity which may have an impact on personal safety or security. A copy of this report will be made available upon request. If you wish to obtain a copy, please stop by the WCCS Campus Police Department.
