Chief's Message

Bobby Barrows

The Bunker Hill Community College Police Department (BHCCPD) seeks to improve the quality of life for all people on the college campus through the deliverance of total quality police service. Through extensive, in-depth training, adherence to all policies and procedures, and utilization of college and community partnerships, we strive to prevent crime, solve problems and enforce the law while working with diverse communities to improve the quality of life. Our mandate is to do so with honor and integrity, while at all times conducting ourselves with the highest ethical standards to maintain public confidence.

The success of our department depends upon the true partnership between our police department and the diverse population of students, faculty, and staff that comprise the college community - a partnership built upon mutual respect, responsibility and participation. It is our duty to maintain peace and order within a safe and secure community environment so the BHCCPD may provide a campus where academic excellence can be nurtured.  BHCCPD is an important part of higher education and we are committed to maintaining a safe learning environment free from disruptive behavior or dangerous and threatening conditions.

Our commitment and core values include but are not limited to dedication, pride, and professionalism. The BHCCPD will do all we can, within our jurisdiction and authority, to protect and assist any college member or visitor with any problem that affects the safety and/or security of life or property.

The BHCCPD takes great pride in being accountable and accessible to the unique and diverse needs of the college community.  We place a high value upon teamwork, and expect our officers to act as role models and leaders in all they do. We recognize we are in an ever-changing environment and therefore continuously evaluate the quality, efficiency and appropriateness of our efforts and welcome feedback as an opportunity to improve.

In order to provide efficient and effective service to our college community, the BHCCPD is fully committed to building and maintaining meaningful partnerships within the campus, throughout the adjoining neighborhoods and with all relevant local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.

On behalf of the men and women of the BHCCPD, I thank you for your continued support. Through your involvement, I am confident our department will continue to provide Bunker Hill Community College with an unsurpassed level of safety.
