Security Office

Emergency and General Inquiries: (419) 995-8499

Persons calling the (419) 995-8499 number should be aware that the conversations are on an open air wave and can be heard by people with scanners. The 8499 number rings into the security officer’s radio, therefore allowing them to answer that number from anywhere on campus. Notice: they are not able to transfer you to another number nor can they call you from the security radios. With this information in mind, it might be better for you to contact one of the other listed numbers for routine things. Of course, if there is an emergency please call the 8499 number or 911.

Rhodes State College mandates all faculty and staff to report all crime in accordance with the Clery Act. The College has confidential and anonymous reporting forms available via this link:

Meet Your Security Team

Rhodes State College is staffed by “Sworn” and “Non-sworn” personnel. The Security Office is charged with the responsibility of ensuring the safety and security of students, faculty, staff and visitors to the campus. Responsibilities include patrolling of buildings, parking lots and grounds of the campus. We provide several services to include escorts, locked keys in vehicles, Campus ID’s and jump starts. We also investigate offenses, traffic accidents and medical emergencies on campus. The office is responsible for issuing parking registrations and enforcement of parking violations.


Foremost, the mission of Security is simply to provide security and safety to all campus community members, as well as emergency management planning and other public safety services designed to enhance a safe and secure educational learning environment for all campus community members.
