Identification Cards

After registering for classes, you may receive a photo identification card from the Department of Public Safety. If you are a returning student, your ID must be validated at the department after registration.

You will need a card for admittance to computer labs, college functions, and to the Athletic and Fitness Center. They are also required to check out materials from the HCC Library.

Necessary documentation:

  • Proof of enrollment at the college
  • A valid photo ID
  • Vehicle information including license plate number (if parking on campus)

Public Safety Escort

Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to use any security phone or stop by the Department of Public Safety to request an escort to or from an on-campus location. Use one of the red emergency phones located strategically throughout campus. Dial ext. 5500 from an on-campus phone, or directly at 443-518-5500 from an outside line such as your cell phone.

Emergency Phones

Emergency phones are located throughout the campus' buildings and grounds. There are three types; red, blue and the elevator phones. All can be used to contact the Department of Public Safety. Red security phones are located throughout the buildings and outside entrances. Blue light phones are on the paths and parking areas. Elevator phones are located in each elevator. By picking up a red phone or pushing the button on a blue light phone, the call goes to the security office and patrol units. Elevator phones connect to a 24-hour elevator repair service that will call Public Safety and send a repair person, if needed. 

In addition to requesting help, the security phones can be used to contact the Department of Public Safety for the following:

  • report a suspicious person
  • request medical service
  • request escort service
  • report an incident
  • recover property
  • report thefts
  • request building or room access
  • report disorderly conduct

Lost and Found

Lost and found is located at the Public Safety office on the first floor of the RCF building.  Every effort is made to identify and contact the rightful owner of found property items.  After thirty days, unclaimed property will be disposed of through established departmental policy.

Giving makes a difference! Your support helps students along their pathways to success.
