Providing Security & Safety on Campus
The North Hennepin Community College Department of Public Safety is recognized as the primary campus department responsible for providing security services for students, faculty, staff and campus visitors.
The department includes full time professional and part-time paraprofessional officers. Public Safety Officers are NOT licensed police officers and do not possess the power of arrest as defined by Minnesota State Statute, but have been granted the authority by the Institution’s President to enforce institution policy, which is not inconsistent with federal, state or local law, and to make citizens arrests when necessary.
The Brooklyn Park Police Department provides fully licensed police protection for North Hennepin Community College. The Department of Public Safety has developed a working relationship with the Brooklyn Park Police Department that allows for immediate response to all crimes, emergencies, or requests for service generated by the campus.
Additionally, NHCC falls within the jurisdiction of Hennepin County Sheriff .
Campus Security Reports
