Home/About/Campus Police and Security

The Wilkes Community College (WCC) Police Department is responsible for helping provide a safe and secure learning environment for all WCC students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The WCC Police Department is a sanctioned, full-service law enforcement agency. Sworn WCC Police Officers have full powers of arrest within the jurisdictional areas of the campus and adjoining streets or highways. They receive their agency commission and authority via NC General Statutes. In addition to the sworn police personnel, WCCPD employs and utilizes non-sworn security officers to provide for the physical security of WCC facilities and enforcement of campus parking and driving policy and assist with providing traffic control and security for special events on campus.
