Kilgore Campus

Longview Campus

The Kilgore College Police Department is a State-Certified police agency. We provide protection 24 hours-a-day, every day of the year. Our authority extends to the Kilgore College-Longview campus and any property owned or leased by Kilgore College. The officers are empowered to write citations, make arrests and investigate all criminal incidents on campus.

Protecting students, faculty and staff members

The major responsibility for the safety and well-being of students, faculty and staff members at Kilgore College rests with the Kilgore College Police Department. The department recognizes that it has a wider mission than other law enforcement agencies, adding significantly to its responsibilities. Department personnel are sensitive to the unique nature of the college community – a diverse group of students, faculty and staff. This calls for a safe and orderly environment so that all members of the community can fulfill their individual missions.

As a service to the students, staff and visitors, campus police will assist with minor vehicle problems such as jump starting low batteries and accidental lock-outs.

Parking Permits

Kilgore College is a “Parking by Permit Only” campus. Student parking permits are issued at the Service Center in the Devall Student Center Gameroom.  The operation of a motor vehicle or bicycle on college property is a PRIVILEGE granted by the college and is not an inherent right of any faculty/staff member, student, or visitor. All faculty/staff, students, and visitors who park on college property must have a valid Kilgore College issued parking permit or temporary parking permit.

The college assumes no liability and/or responsibility for damage to or theft of any vehicle parked or driven on campus. The college assumes no responsibility or any duty to protect any vehicle or its contents at any time the vehicle is operated or parked on the campus. No bailment is created by granting any parking or operating privileges regarding a vehicle on any property owned, leased, or otherwise controlled by the college. These regulations are in effect at all times on college property. Controlled parking areas include all parking lots on campus. Signs or pavement markings have been placed to designate these parking areas.

KCPD enforces State of Texas vehicle inspection and registration laws for vehicles parking or driving on the Kilgore College Campus.
