Reporting Criminal Activities

Any suspicious activity or emergency should be reported to the Department of Public Safety. Staff is on duty 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

HCC will inform students and staff in a timely manner of any criminal activity or security situation that may pose a threat to the safety of persons on campus. Such information will be distributed through electronic mail, emergency notification via ALERT ME, bulletin boards, notices, or by HCC personnel.

HCC employs Special Police Officers who are commissioned with powers of arrest and the enforcement of criminal and motor vehicle laws on campus. Most incidents on campus are investigated by HCC Special Police Officers. Harford County Sheriff's Office may be called upon for assistance when warranted or upon request of the victim.
