Campus Security

Your safety is our priority!

The safety and security of our students, faculty, staff, and guests is our number one priority. Our goal is to provide a safe living and learning environment. 

Located in the Newton Building, BPC Security is responsible for enforcing applicable federal, state and local laws, as well as the college’s policies and regulations. All criminal offenses occurring on campus or at a college event should be reported to Campus Security. The campus is patrolled by officers who are on foot, in vehicles and golf carts.

Campus Security is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Security and Access to Campus Facilities

Brewton-Parker College affords an open campus where students, faculty and staff are free to move about at will. As an open campus, guests are welcome. Campus facilities are for the use of BPC students, faculty and staff. Visitors may reserve the use of facilities through the President’s office.

Because we have an open campus, we ask all students, faculty and staff members to report any strange or suspicious activities to security personnel, the student life office, residence hall staff or, if necessary, to the local police department.
