Campus Safety & Sheriff’s Office at BCC

Campus Safety

Brunswick Community maintains a healthy, safe, and secure environment for students, employees, and guests. This is being accomplished by being in compliance with local, state, and federal regulations, communication of safety rules, and training of students and employees in safe practices. See “Documents and PDFs” on the right for BCC’s Emergency Action Plan.

Sheriff’s Office at BCC

The School Resource Officer program through the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office provides Deputy Sheriffs as School Resource Officers at Brunswick Community College.

School Resource Officers become a role model for the students and also act as a crime deterrent. The one-on-one relationship between the students and the officers allow problems to be solved before they escalate beyond control. They also work in conjunction with the College administration to maintain a safe and orderly environment at the College.

Campus Watch

Campus Watch is a program designed to alert the campus community that a formal process for reporting crimes and safety hazards exists on campus. Individuals can report incidents to BCC Sheriff’s Office in person or by phone: 910-755-7330 (extension 7330 by any campus phone). If you want to remain anonymous you may call 910-755-7410 (extension 7410 by any campus phone) or by e-mail: [email protected].

Emergency Call Boxes

These emergency call boxes provide users with a simple way to call for emergency assistance. Press the button and speak clearly into the telephone. The call is automatically sent to “911”. This two-way call box is located at parking lot 7 and the Fitness and Aquatics Center pool area.

Reporting Crime on Campus

For an emergency, dial “911″. The Brunswick County Emergency Services center (911) will immediately alert BCC Sheriff’s Deputies by radio and telephone.  For non-emergencies, dial 910-755-7330 (office). To leave information anonymously dial 910-755-7410 (for non-emergencies) and leave a message on the recorded line or by e-mailing the following: [email protected]. All e-mails and phone messages are checked several times daily and all information will be addressed promptly.
