About the BCCC Police Department



The Beaufort County Community College Police Department, located in the Graham Elliot Building (Building 1) Room 114, is a professional police department providing the same level of service offered by a municipal police department, as well as other services unique to an academic institution. The department is responsible for the well-being of everyone at the College. The department works closely with administrators, students, faculty, and staff to create and maintain a secure atmosphere. Its statutory arrest jurisdiction includes all College property as well as streets and sidewalks adjacent to the property. 

BCCC Police Officers are certified by the State of North Carolina and patrol the College grounds on foot, in patrol cars, and on bicycles. 

The College, as with any other public or private entity, cannot assure or guarantee a crime-free environment. Accordingly, it is the responsibility of members of the College Community to act in a security-conscious manner and to avoid actions which jeopardized their security as well as the security of others. Members of the faculty, staff, and student body should report all crimes, hazards, emergencies, or dangerous situations to the BCCC Police Department immediately.

Our Mission



The Mission of the BCCC Police Department is to assist students, faculty, staff, and visitors in maintaining a safe environment, and to enhance the quality of life at Beaufort County Community College so the institutional purpose of education and service can be fulfilled.
