    Campus Police Department

    Pueblo Community College maintains its own professional police. The department is staffed with experienced State-Certified peace officers who have been trained in Colorado Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) procedures. State law grants PCC police officers the same powers of arrest as city and county officers. The Department of Public Safety also employs state security guards who also have the power to arrest while on campus, per Colorado State Statue (C.R.S. 24-7-103). PCC maintains four campuses (Pueblo, Fremont, Southwest Campus (Mancos), and Southwest Site (Durango)) located in the State Of Colorado. PCC’s main campus is located in the City and County of Pueblo, therefore working closely with Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office and Pueblo Police Department. Memorandums of Understanding are in place with both agencies for immediate mutual aid assistance. The Fremont campus is located in Cañon City and is staffed with a State-Certified peace officer and security guard. There is as a memorandum of understanding with the Cañon City Police Department for mutual aid assistance. The Southwest Campus and Southwest Site are staffed with private security guards.
