The mission of Campus Security is to provide the safest educational environment possible for all faculty, staff, students and visitors at all of RCC’s campus locations.

Campus security is provided by uniformed officers of the Lumberton Police Department. While on duty at RCC these officers possess all powers of sworn police officers to make arrests for both felonies and misdemeanors and charge for infractions. Officers are on campus during most periods when students and visitors are present.

The Main Campus is located within the city limits of Lumberton and is under the jurisdiction of the Lumberton Police Department.

The one Pembroke facility at COMtech is under the jurisdiction of the Robeson County Sheriff’s Department and Eagle Security Services.

The EMT facility is not within city limits; and is under the jurisdiction of the Robeson County Sheriff’s Department.
