A Message from the Chief

I would like to extend a warm welcome to the Texas State Technical College Harlingen new and returning faculty, staff, students and all visitors.  Your safety is the primary concern of our police department.  As members of this outstanding educational community we all share a responsibility to work together to maintain the safest working and learning environment possible.

The Texas State Technical College Police Department is here to work together with you providing law enforcement service and protecting all persons and property of the Texas State Technical College.    We are a fully certified police department within the State of Texas and all TSTC Harlingen Police Officers are certified as Texas Peace Officers by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officers Standards and Education (TCLEOSE).

In addition to patrolling the campus, enforcing State Laws, the Rules & Regulations of the TSTC System Board of Regents, we conduct criminal investigations of crimes occurring at any off campus TSTC sponsored events and on property that is owned, leased, rented or otherwise under the control of TSTC. The department also provides crime prevention and personal safety programs.  We are also happy to provide many other services to our community including vehicle unlocks, motorist assists, and safety escorts.

We appreciate the opportunity to serve our students, faculty, staff, and visitors and welcome your comments or questions.  Please call our office if we can be of assistance at 956-364-4220.  Or contact us at our office, we are located in the Auxiliary Services Building (Building A).
