BRCC police officers must successfully complete a certified police academy approved by the Louisiana Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Commission.  Therefore, BRCC Police are vested with all of the powers, authority, and responsibilities granted to any police officer of the state while on property owned by the college, (including adjacent public streets) as set forth in Section 17:1805 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes.

BRCC police officers provide a range of services and constantly strive to increase professional growth and enhance customer service and safety on campus. Additionally, we seek to continue in developing and implementing crime prevention strategies by expanding the Police Department to compete with the growth of the community, increase in student enrollment and the development of new programs initiated by the college.  BRCC Police provides an array of law enforcement services, crime prevention strategies & training programs to our constituents that include but not limited to the following:
