Welcome to Dyersburg State Community College!

Safety and Security
Campus Police

Dyersburg State Community College is committed to ensuring a safe and secure environment for all students, faculty and staff. The DSCC Campus Police department and auxiliary security officer staff play a crucial role in maintaining safety and security on our campus and at our centers.

Chief of Police Michael L. Peeler and the DSCC Campus Police Department are responsible for maintaining security and policing of all Dyersburg State Community College buildings and properties, enforcement of campus rules and regulations as set forth by DSCC and the Tennessee Board of Regents, and enforcement of state and local laws as governed by the State of Tennessee. Our officers are state-certified law enforcement officers in the state of Tennessee through the Peace Officer’s Standards and Training (POST) Commission and have full arrest and investigative powers on the DSCC and TCAT properties that they serve.

Our police officers are employed to safeguard both property and personnel and help maintain a safe and secure environment for learning and working.  The campus police department also investigates crimes, accidents, and incidents, while providing information and assistance to support and promote institutional programs.

In addition to our POST-certified officers, DSCC also employs security guards from Allied Universal, a leading security and facility services company.  These security officers provide support to the campus police and help ensure the safety and security of our facilities after normal working hours.
