This web page is part of Patrick Henry Community College's (PHCC's) effort to provide students and employees information about campus safety and security. We hope that you will read it carefully and use the information to help the college provide a safe learning and working environment. PHCC is required to inform students of the risks to their safety and security according to the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990.

Reporting of Criminal Actions and Other Emergencies
Uniformed guards provide security enforcement on the PHCC campus and at college off-campus sites. The guard sergeant plans and supervises work schedules, performs inspections to insure that proper patrolling methods are maintained, and assigns security personnel for special college events. The guards maintain scheduled patrols and inspections of campus grounds and facilities. They also coordinate efforts with local law enforcement agencies on matters pertinent to and within the jurisdiction of the Virginia Community College System. The Virginia State Police are contacted as required by current regulations.

It is your responsibility to report all actual and suspected criminal acts and to encourage everyone to be responsible for their own safety as well as each others'. You can contact security by calling the on-campus office at (276)656-0221 or (276)732-2406. You may also contact the vice president of financial and administrative services at (276)656-0205. For emergencies requiring an ambulance, fire department or police, call 911 and then contact campus security.

Access and Security
The college security guards and other college personnel maintain security and access to the campus. Buildings are closed to students after evening classes. On weekends, the library and computer laboratories are available only during designated times. The hours of operation for each laboratory are posted and are also available from personnel in the respective laboratories.
We suggest you follow these guidelines to minimize security risks:

  • do not prop open doors to the outside
  • lock rooms that are unavailable on weekends;
  • travel in pairs or groups if going from campus buildings to parking lots after dark;
  • stay within the lighted walkway areas at night;
  • avoid working or studying alone on campus at night or on weekends;
  • keep car doors and windows locked;
  • do not leave purses, book bags or other valuables open or unattended.
