On behalf of the men and women of the Trinity Valley Community College Police Department I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our web site. 

The Police Department employs a group of dedicated men and women who work on a daily basis to deliver the highest level of professional services to our students, as well as faculty, staff, visitors and the community.  We strive to create an atmosphere of safety, while allowing the students to focus more closely on attaining an education of the highest quality.  
The police department offers a variety of law enforcement services, such as parking enforcement, criminal investigations, and 24 hour campus patrol.  We also offer courtesy services, such as, vehicle unlocks, jump starts, and escorts for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.  The police department also offers an array of information regarding crime prevention and personal protection.

Our officers are certified by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement.  Each officer is authorized to enforce all state laws, and is empowered with all of the rights, immunities and arrest powers offered to all police officers in the State of Texas.

We encourage you to contact our office at (903) 675-6235 should you need any assistance while on campus.  Feel free to visit the police department located in the Math/Journalism Building, Suite 501.   Our officers are eagerly waiting to assist you.
