About the Office of Campus Safety & Security 

Maintaining an environment where everyone feels safe and secure requires a cooperative and collaborative effort between all members of the college community. As seen throughout the college, we too value diversity and strive to treat everyone with respect and dignity.

A tradition of efficient, courteous service to the community has always been the goal of the Office of Campus Safety and Security as well as enhancing the public’s knowledge of emergency management and safety operations at BTC.  Blackhawk Technical College is committed to ensuring the health and safety of the entire college community.
