College Security Services

College Security and Police Officers at Central Piedmont Community College are here to help. No matter what kind of situation arises at the College, the 24-hour Security and Police Dispatch Center at Central Piedmont, located in the Drumm Facilities Services Building on Central Campus, is the first step toward resolving safety issues. As soon as a call for assistance is received, a radio call goes out to the nearest security or police officer. Additional resources such as Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Fire and Municipal Police also are immediately dispatched, based on the incident.

  • For emergencies or immediate assistance, dial 704.330.6911.
  • For non-emergencies, dial 704.330.6632.
  • For parking assistance, dial 704.330.6117.
  • For a security tip, send a text message to 67283. Start the message with CPCCTIP, then include the tip.

The college seeks to promote a safe teaching and learning environment for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors while on the premises. Measures that contribute to the teaching and learning environment's safety are controlled access to facilities and distribution of keys, the presence of both sworn law enforcement officers and security officers, and a heightened awareness of criminal activity through regular reporting and educational programs. Within these measures, the college complies with all crime awareness education and reporting requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. The Annual Security Report contains important information about safety, security, and crime statistics at Central Piedmont. It is available on the College Security Services website.
