Safety concerns at SLCC

Posted: Updated:

A group of certified police officers at South Louisiana Community College (SLCC) resigned last week, leaving the Lafayette campus without gun carrying security.

Officials with the college say they can't comment as to why all three officers resigned in the same week. But they did say students and faculty should not be concerned because over the past year they have increased the number of security officers at all of their campuses.

Christine Payton, Public Relations Director at SLCC says safety is priority one for the college and they do have security guards at all of their campuses, patrolling day and night. Payton says some of the SLCC campuses never had security officers but as of this year they do.

The biggest difference in only having security officers on campus instead of police officers is that security officers don't carry guns. There is no word yet if more police officers will be hired.
