At Richland College, our purpose is to provide an environment to assist in your educational endeavors. The College Police Department has the primary responsibility for the security of the college community. We offer a variety of services to the college beyond the detection and prevention of crime on campus. While no campus is immune from crime, with a cooperative effort between you and the College Police, together we can strive to keep crime at a minimum. Please become familiar with the services we provide and feel free to call us.

The campus buildings and grounds are normally open Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. until 11:30 p.m., Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., and Sundays as necessary to accommodate classes.
