The Yavapai College Police Department is dedicated to providing a safe educational, social and work environment for all students, faculty, and staff members.
Our Department is a community-oriented law enforcement agency and we are committed to serving our community with the highest degree of professionalism, sensitivity and integrity.
As a full service college police department, our department is staffed by highly trained officers who are AZPOST certified. We have the same responsibilities and authority as municipal, county or state law enforcement agencies. We promote safety and responsibility through education, training, interaction and when necessary, enforcement of the law.
The primary role of the Yavapai College Police Department is to provide assistance and protection of people on all campuses, protection of their property and protection of College property within the District. The Yavapai College Police Department takes pride in providing a high level of customer service and feel it is a privilege to be granted the opportunity to serve students, employees and visitors within our community.

Our goal is to provide a safe and healthy environment through quality law enforcement services and community problem solving partnerships. Here's how we work to make that happen:
Our campuses are equipped with emergency telephones so you can easily call for help if you need it. Just locate the emergency telephones topped with a blue light. You can also view a campus map of the emergency phone locations.
In an emergency, simply press the large red button. Pushing this button is just like dialing '911', and College Police and local area law enforcement will be immediately notified of the emergency and respond. As long as it is safe to do so, please stay by the emergency phone until an officer arrives.
The black button is for non-emergency purposes. It rings directly to the College Police Department. Consider using the emergency phone's black button for issues including: disabled vehicle assistance, unlocking of a classroom, reporting minor injuries, traffic accidents without injuries, lost and found assistance, or if you are lost and in need of directions.
Free fingerprinting services are offered on the Prescott Campus on Wednesdays from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. For Non-Students hours are Fridays 8:00 A.M. - 10:00 A.M.
