The Grayson College Police Department provides law enforcement and security services to all components of Grayson College including academic campuses, student housing, athletic events and satellite facilities throughout Grayson County.

The department consists of 10 certified Police Officers, 2 Public Safety Officers (PSO), and the Crime Records Coordinator. To provide a safe campus for our students, staff, faculty and visitors, the department has certified police officers and/or PSO on patrol. Unarmed Public Safety Officers work closely with our Patrol Officers by constantly patrolling campus properties and staffing fixed posts at various facilities.
