Campus Safety at SCC

We work with the college community to keep our campuses safe and friendly with constant patrols, safety escorts, emergency preparedness and operation of campus wide lost-and-found services. (Lost and found will only hold onto items of value and I.D. cards.) The Office of Campus Security oversees the following three areas; Security, Emergency Management and Parking Services.

Remember: Always call 911 for immediate emergencies. If you are on campus, please also call Campus Security 509-533-3333.
