Campus Safety

What We Do

Campus Safety is comprised of Campus Safety and the Emergency Response department. Campus Safety is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all students, staff and visitors by establishing a peaceful learning atmosphere where all people can attend safely and without fear. We strive to provide outstanding customer service, while balancing the enforcement of the policies and procedures that we are charged to uphold. 

One of the primary goals of Campus Safety is to make the campus secure for students, staff and visitors. Campus safety officers patrol the college's East and West campuses including the parking lots. Although they go through training, college safety officers are not peace officers.  Safety officers wear blue shirts with yellow lettering and yellow jackets with blue lettering as uniforms and while on evening patrol, the officers carry flashlights at all times.  The officers also carry walkie-talkies which give them instant communication with the local police. Among other duties we are responsible for parking enforcement on campus, and provide escorts and vehicle battery starts if needed. 

Emergency on Campus

In the event of an emergency please call Campus Safety at extension 4200 from a campus phone or from a cell phone call (805) 730-4200 or dial 911 (direct police/fire emergency line).  Emergency phones are located throughout the campus.
