Safety & Security

Chief's Message

Welcome to the Southwestern College Police website. The following pages contain important information on the services provided by the Police Department, crime reporting, emergency preparedness, and other important safety and security information.

The Southwestern College Police Department is committed to providing a secure campus environment. The safety of our students, faculty, and staff is of paramount concern. Southwestern College is a safe institution, but crime does occur from time to time. It is therefore imperative the College Police Department works in close collaboration with other departments of the college along with students, faculty, and staff members to identify potential vulnerabilities and risks. Any criminal or suspicious activity should be reported promptly.

The College Police Department works with the campus communities to enhance its overall operational effectiveness and its ability to respond to the communities’ needs through shared values and community-oriented policing efforts. Only by working together through common purpose can the safety and security of our campuses be achieved. 

Thank you,
Davis Nighswonger
Chief of Police
