Public Safety

PCC makes every effort to provide a safe and secure environment so that you can concentrate on your educational and professional goals.

We have our own College Police staffed by 30 police officers and additional security personnel. You can call Pima's College Police for assistance at any time of the day or night on all of our campuses, centers and other sites.

The PCC College Police has

  • offices on all campuses.
  • a 24/7 communication system that fields emergency and assistance calls around the clock.
  • campus phones that provide direct contact with the department in an emergency.
  • a bicycle patrol unit.
  • civilian community service officers who provide a constant, visible presence.
