The NCC Police Department employs a chief, six full-time officers who also serve as instructors, and two part-time officers. Each officer is sworn by the North Carolina Criminal Justice Training and Standards Division, and holds full arrest authority and jurisdiction on campus-owned and controlled property.

At minimum, one deputy from Nash County Sheriff’s Office is also on duty during operating hours. NCC Police Officers work varying schedules allowing extended coverage. They also provide support during special occasions on campus and are empowered to protect the campus while enforcing state and municipal laws, and College rules and regulations.
