For the Fastest Response On-Campus:
Dial 817-515-8911 (or 58911 from any on-campus telephone) to reach TCC Campus Police.
This number will connect you directly to the TCC Police Dispatchers who will send the closest police officers to your aid and coordinate with any additional services needed for the fastest response. Pressing the red button on any of the Code Blue phones and speaker boxes strategically placed around TCC campuses will also directly connect you to the TCC Police Dispatch.
There are two ways to opt in to receive emergency alerts from TCC on your mobile phone. Examples of the notifications sent include severe weather information and emergency closures. You may opt in to either or both.
The TCC Police Department offers a Victims Assistance program to students and their families who have been the victim of a crime to try to lessen the associated trauma.
To reach the Victims Assistance program, dial 817-515-8911, and ask to speak to the Victim Assistance Coordinator.
Tarrant County College has developed a protocol for students and employees to respond to an active shooter situation. Familiarize yourself with these guidelines to empower yourself and know what to do should this situation occur.
In Case of Emergency
For the fastest response to an emergency of any type, all efforts should be made to contact the TCC Police Department first. TCC officers are already on campuses, and they can get to you faster than city police officers.
Dialing 911 from a cell phone on a campus will not connect you to the TCC Police Department but will connect you to the municipal public safety call center closest to your location.
