St. Cloud Technical and Community College (SCTCC) is committed to providing a safe work and learning environment for employees, students and visitors. To help maintain that commitment of safety, SCTCC built a strong working relationship with the Department of Public Safety at St. Cloud State University (SCSU) to provide security officer services on our campus. Public Safety Officers provide numerous services on our campus such as vehicle and foot patrols, escorts, vehicle "jump-start" services. To reach a Public Safety Officer, you may contact them at the number above.
In addition to the security services provided by SCSU, the college maintains a highly professional relationship with the St. Cloud Police Department. Every Tuesday from about 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. during the academic year, St. Cloud Police officers from the Community Crime Impact Team set up a booth outside of the SCTCC Commons located in the main building. These officers are here to help promote campus safety and provide students, employees, and visitors with a chance to ask questions.
Students, faculty, staff and guests of the College are encouraged to immediately report emergencies and criminal activity to SCSU Department of Public Safety or the St. Cloud Police Department (911). You can reach the Department of Public Safety by calling 83333 from any on campus phone or 320-308-3333 from an off campus phone. This number is answered all day, every day. You can also stop by the Health and Safety Office, which is located in the Business Office of the Northway.
If you have information on a crime that has been committed on the SCTCC Campus (or around your community) and wish to remain anonymous, you may contact the Tri-County Crime Stoppers by Secure Online Tip Form, calling 1-800-255-1301 or texting to CRIME (274637) and starting your message with the keyword TriTip.
