TMCC is policed by the department of public safety. TMCC police officers have the same training and authority as other municipal, county or state peace officers. All police officer training exceeds the standards set by the Nevada Peace Officers Standards and Training division. Community resource officers are trained non-enforcement safety personnel.
The TMCC department of public safety maintains close working relationships with the Washoe County Sheriff's office and the Reno Police departments. The department of public safety coordinates police services at other TMCC sites such as the Meadowood Education Center, Applied Technology Center, Redfield Performing Arts Center, Desert Research Institute, Regional Training Center and TMCC High School.
