The mission of the South Texas College Department of Public Safety is to provide a safe educational environment for students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors. This is accomplished through:
- The education of the college community on crime prevention methods and techniques and the need to assume personal responsibility for safety and security on campus.
- The development of a comprehensive all hazards emergency response plan to ensure the safety of individuals and the protection of college resources.
- The acquisition and utilization of state of the art technology to deter crime and protect the college community.
- The enforcement of all laws, policies, and regulations.
The Chief Administrator of the Department of Public Safety prepares this crime statistics report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. Each year, notification is made to all enrolled students, providing the web site to access this report. Faculty and staff receive similar notification.
