Campus Police

The Wilson Community College Police Department is a certified sworn Law Enforcement Agency committed to protecting life and property, deterring criminal activity, ensuring public safety, and providing an academic environment that is conducive to learning. All campus police officers are sworn law enforcement agents who work closely with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies to provide visitors, students, faculty, and staff a safe and secure environment while on our campus.

Campus police officers have complete police authority to apprehend and arrest anyone involved in illegal acts on campus and areas immediately adjacent to the campus. If a student or employee commits a minor offense involving College rules and regulations, campus security officers may refer the individual for disciplinary action.


The WCC Police Department is located in Building D, Room D103, and can be reached at extension 1400 or 1393 if dialed from a campus phone (252-246-1400 or 252-246-1393 from an off-campus phone).

Students, employees, and visitors should report any incidents and concerns immediately so that appropriate response measures may be taken.
