St. Cloud Technical & 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 has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the St. Cloud Police Department to provide security and community relations services on campus. You can view the MOU with full details by clicking HERE. Our campus SCPD Officer will have a kiosk in the Northway Building and be a resource to all students, staff, and faculty for on-campus and off-campus concerns. In addition to patrolling campus buildings and grounds, the officer will also serve on various campus committees and provide safety related training in and outside of the classroom setting.

St. Cloud State University (SCSU) Public Safety Department will provide security services on our campus during the evening hours. Public Safety Officers provide numerous services on our campus such as vehicle and foot patrols and campus escorts.
