Always remember, at GRCC, you are surrounded by people who want you to be successful and are ready to walk with you on your educational pathway. We are here to help!

Meet GRCC Police Chief Rebecca Whitman. Chief Whitman is here to help students and employees be safe on campus.

“If you ever feel unsafe, have a concern, or see a dangerous situation call GRCC PD right away at 234-4911, or 4911 from an on-campus phone,” she said.  “It is the GRCC Police Department’s primary job to keep people and things safe while on our campus.”

Chief Whitman’s 17-person police department also focuses on emergency preparation and service. Programs such as GRCC Safe Walk, where an officer assists people walking between buildings and parking garages after dark, as well as assisting with medical emergencies and helping motorists, are aimed at providing security and peace of mind.

As a police department for a community college, GRCC PD has full law enforcement authority — with the ability to arrest and carry firearms. Officers enforce college policies as well as all city, state and federal laws.

Chief Whitman has more than 35 years of law enforcement experience, and the members of her department have more than 250 years of combined law enforcement experience. Every day Chief Whitman and her team leverage that experience to be a resource for members of our campus community.

“I’m satisfied knowing that our students can come and go freely without worrying,” she said.
