I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all new and returning students, faculty, staff, and guests to Southwestern College and would like to assure you that the Safety and Security Department is sincerely committed to making your experience here at SC a safe and welcoming one in which you can pursue your academic and career endeavors.

The Safety and Security Department is here patrolling the campus 24 hours a day/7 days a week.  We are comprised of fulltime and part-time security Officers who are committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our SC community. Courtesy, professionalism and respect are the foundations on which our department is built and are central to our conduct. 

I do want to enlist your help in keeping Southwestern College the safe and secure campus it has always been.  The responsibility for crime prevention is one that we all share.  Please, if you witness suspicious or criminal activity on or near campus, report it immediately to both Winfield Police Department at 911 and to Southwestern College Security Department at 620-229-0012.  Together, you and Southwestern College Security Department can make Southwestern College a safer place to be. 

We ask that you acquaint yourself with the rules and regulations of the campus, including being mindful of the parking guidelines, residence hall safety and security procedures, and reviewing emergency plans on our web page.

On behalf of the men and women of our agency, we are delighted you chose to view our website. I invite you to take a few minutes to explore the information that has been provided. We are dedicated and passionate in providing the highest level of public safety services and promoting a safe and secure campus for our Builder nation and guests.
