National Park College takes the safety and security of its students, faculty, and staff very seriously.

We have a very conscientious Safety and Security Department, comprised of a campus Safety and Security Director, Steve Arnold, and Garland County Sheriff's Deputies that are available on campus and patrol our campus from the early morning hours until late at night.

How to Reach Campus Safety and Security

To contact NPC's Safety and Security Officer dial extension 4293 from any NPC phone or call 501-760-4293. You may email Security at You may also call "0" or 911 if you have an emergency. Our Safety and Security Director may also be reached any time at 501-276-5663. The Garland County Sheriff's Office may be reached at 501-622-3660 or 9-1-1.

Crime Reporting

Every crime should be reported to Campus Safety/Security staff as soon as possible. This is the most effective way to ensure the well-being of our campus community. If a person is not comfortable talking to Safety/Security staff or Law Enforcement then please contact either John Tucker, Dean of Students at 501-760-4229 or, or Julie LaRue in Human Resources at 501-760-4345 or Confidential crime reporting is an essential if not preferred method of reporting. But Remember, "See something...Say something!" Let someone know!

NPC publishes an annual report sharing campus crime statistics which can be found under the Crime Statistics page.

Anonymous Tips/Reporting

NPC has a dedicated tip line. If you have news, tips or information related to safety, security or criminal activities (non-emergency) and you would like to report them anonymously to the Campus Safety/Security team, do not hesitate to call 501-760-NEWS. Your call will be recorded and you may remain anonymous. Again, this is for non-emergency information only - if you have an actual emergency or know a crime is in progress, please do not hesitate to call 9-1-1.
