About Campus Security Officers

Hagerstown Community College utilizes unarmed security officers to supplement the Campus Police. These security officers do not possess arrest powers and are not authorized to conduct traffic enforcement. HCC Security Officers are dressed in tan colored security shirts and black BDU style pants. Security officers patrol campus and are trained to observe and report incidents. If an HCC Campus Police Officer is not available, the security officer will contact the Washington County Sheriff ’s Office. HCC Security Officers are considered a Campus Security Authority and are trained to document and report incidents, as required under the Clery Act. HCC Security Officers can be reached by calling 240-55-2308 or by stopping by the office at LRC 115.
