Campus Police

The College of Charleston campus and surrounding areas are patrolled twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week by certified Campus Police officers. Patrol officer assignments each day are divided into two twelve-hour shifts, each shift supervised by a sergeant. Patrol is conducted on foot, on bicycles and in vehicles. The high visibility and mobility of these officers is an integral part of our community policing efforts. Beyond enforcing local and state laws, these officers are available to take information, file incident reports, conduct preliminary investigations, assist with automobile lockouts and jump starts, secure and unlock buildings, provide security at sports and social functions, provide security escorts, and assist local law enforcement jurisdictions.
