The Blinn College Police & Security Department has the responsibility for the safety and well-being of the students, faculty and staff members at the college.

Department personnel are sensitive to the special nature of a college campus and especially to students, who are generally young and on their own for the first time. This calls for a safe and orderly environment so all members of the community may fulfill their individual missions.

Blinn College Police Department is a State of Texas certified police agency who employ 21 commissioned officers and a number of support staff.

Their authority extends to the four counties Blinn Campuses reside, Brazos County, Austin County, Fayette County and Washington County, which encompasses more than 70 acres that make up the Blinn College-Bryan campus and the 62 acres that make up the Blinn College-Brenham campus. The Blinn Police Department investigates all crimes on campus property. The Blinn College Police Department cooperates with all local and federal law enforcement agencies.

The College Police Department, in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies, monitors criminal offenses committed off campus by Blinn employees and students. The department reports such incidents to appropriate college officials.

The department offers these additional services:

  • Nighttime escorts;
  • Patrols throughout the campus; and
  • Response to a network of fire, smoke and intrusion alarms.

 

Crime Awareness and Prevention

Students must assume responsibility for their personal and property safety. Of the few incidents, thefts, often the results of carelessness, make up the majority of criminal activity on the Blinn College campuses.

Any suspicious person, vehicle, act or incident should be reported to the College Police Department or other college official as soon as possible. Always be aware of your surroundings and travel with companions when possible.

Crime witnesses, especially victims, can receive free counseling through several agencies such as the Blinn College Counseling Service, Victim's Assistance Program and the Rape Crisis Center of Brazos County.
