Providing a safe and secure environment.
The Carilion Police and Security Services Department provides law enforcement and security related services to the medical and college communities of the Carilion Clinic. Our department consists of sworn, non-sworn and civilian staff.
Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment in order to facilitate the systems overall mission. We work closely with patients, families, employees, students and facility in a cooperative effort to make the hospital and learning environment a safe place to provide care to our community.

Officers provide services such as motor patrol, bike patrol, crime prevention presentations, security assessments, and investigations. Our police communications center receives an average of 50,000 requests for services each year. Dispatchers monitor alarms such as fire, intrusion, medical, and panics for over 100 facilities owned or leased by the system.
The department is committed to excellence and dedication to establishing an environment in which members of the department and the medical community can thrive together. As an organization, we dedicate ourselves to becoming a catalyst for proactive policing and shared commitment for the community policing approach in providing services.
