Campus Police

Whether you are a visitor, student, faculty member, or staff, the MCC Campus Police Department wants to make your college experience a safe and enjoyable one.

The Campus Police Department, located on the first floor of Ivy-Scaggs Hall, is a full-service police agency operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The department comprises 11 full-time sworn police officers who security officers complement. Campus Police officers have jurisdiction and legal authority on all college-owned property. Campus Police work very closely and share jurisdiction with the Meridian Police Department, the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department and other law enforcement agencies.

Students live both on and off-campus; Officers patrol campus to provide a safe and secure campus. Students and staff can help make their surroundings safe, too, by being aware and using good judgment.  Be mindful of traffic laws and be cautious while driving on campus. Many students and employees are constantly walking to and from parking lots and buildings.

We encourage anyone who is a victim of crime to report it to the police even if the victim does not choose to press charges. There are resources available, both off and on campus, for victims of sexual misconduct, sexual violence, relationship violence, stalking, or any crime. These services are available whether or not the victim reports the incident to the police.

Campus Police welcome suggestions or ideas for classes or programs such as self-defense, personal safety, drug and alcohol-awareness.
