On behalf of the men and women of the Maricopa Community Colleges Department of Public Safety, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Scottsdale Community College.

The Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) Police Department is a law enforcement agency that operates on site, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Police Department personnel assigned to Scottsdale Community College (SCC) are always available on campus every day to provide assistance or information, either in person or by phone.

The main campus of Scottsdale Community College is located within the boundaries of the Salt River-Pima Maricopa Indian Community, which is adjacent to the City of Scottsdale. The SCC Police Department maintains an excellent working relationship with both the Salt River and Scottsdale Police Departments.

The men and women of the MCCCD Police Department are dedicated individuals who are committed to making a difference and supporting the educational mission of Scottsdale Community College. If you are the victim of a crime I encourage you to report it, or any suspicious activity you observe on campus, to the SCC Police Department. I am confident that you will find members of the Police Department approachable, knowledgeable, and highly professional.

Please take a few minutes to review the information provided on the SCC Police Department website. I invite you to contact College Police if you need further information or simply wish to speak with one of our officers. We are constantly seeking ways to improve our services and welcome your comments, suggestions, compliments, and complaints, Since many of our students also attend other Maricopa Community College campuses I encourage you to visit the MCCCD Police Department website for links to the Annual Security Report.
