Snow College is a growing college with a population of over 5,000 students, faculty, and staff on both Ephraim and Richfield campuses. In addition, thousands of guests visit the campuses for a variety of special events and other activities. While the campuses are relatively safe, they are subject to some of the same problems experienced in other communities in central Utah.

Snow College campus police officers enjoy a special working relationship with Ephraim City Police Department and the Richfield City Police Department that enhances the level of law enforcement and safety on both campuses.

The mission of the Snow College Department of Public Safety is to provide and enhance a safe & secure educational environment for those that attend, work or visit our campuses. Snow College Public Safety efforts are supportive and are consistent with the goals and ideals of Snow College and its community. Snow College Public Safety's primary purpose is to foster trust, reduce crime, help educate students in life skills and to enhance the quality of life for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

A copy can be obtained at the Public Safety office in the Business Building, Ephraim Campus.

Campus Facilities Security

Snow College uses a surveillance camera system to document activities in public areas both inside and outside buildings. Do not assume additional safety based on observing a surveillance camera because such cameras are not generally monitored.

Campus Police and Community Cooperation

Snow College Campus Police have complete police authority to apprehend and arrest anyone involved in illegal acts on campus and areas immediately adjacent to the campuses. If minor offenses involving college policies and regulations are committed by college students, the Campus Police may also investigate and refer the individual to the Vice President for Student Success for disciplinary action.

College police officers are sworn Ephraim City officers; thus they are actively involved with police calls for service off campus. Ephraim City officers have full jurisdiction on campus property within Ephraim City. College officers have full law enforcement authority on the Richfield Campus and the Richfield officers have full jurisdiction on campus property within Richfield City.

Both campuses are part of a 911 emergency system. By mutual agreement with these agencies, Campus Police officers can access the National Crime Information Center database and the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI).

After Hours Campus Security on Ephraim Campus
