Welcome to the Police Services/Public Safety website. Our goals are to provide a quality department, produce satisfied customers, and have a total commitment to serving the Southwest College population.

The College maintains a 24-hour dispatch operation staffed by Police Services personnel. Officers on duty at night, after class hours, and on weekends are equipped with a radio/telephone which can be reached by calling 901-333-4242 on the Macon Cove Campus and 901-333-5555 on the Union Avenue Campus. Surveillance cameras are located strategically across each campus. These cameras transmit 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to monitors and videotape devices located in the Police Services/Public Safety office.

All members of the College community are encouraged to report any unsafe or dangerous situation. Southwest is always looking to ensure that the College is a safe, secure, and healthy environment in which to study and work.
