Welcome from the Chief of Police,
On behalf of the Southwestern Community College District Police Department, I am pleased to present the 2014 Annual Security Report which is compiled in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Statistics Act of 1998. It is one aspect of our overall mission to create a safe and vibrant environment for our campus community. The security of our students, faculty and staff is a primary concern. We are committed to crime prevention as a means to ensure that security.
In addition to providing the ¬mandated crime statistics, this report also strives to educate our community members in the various ways that they can collaborate in keeping themselves and our campuses safe. While our department places great value in the partnerships it has formed with outside agencies at the local, state and federal levels, our most important partners are those of you who work and learn in our campus community, and those who live adjacent to our campuses.
Our campuses are located in a big city and the same rules of common sense for personal safety are well worth heeding on campus as well as off. Be alert to your surroundings, always lock your car, and report any/all suspicious or criminal activity immediately to the College Police Department. We have a police department with sworn law enforcement officers on duty for your protection.
I hope you will read this report carefully and use the information to assist us in keeping our community safe, because safety is a shared responsibility. If you would like additional information, I encourage you to access the College Police Department website at http://www.swccd.edu/index.aspx?page=55
Thank you for your interest,
Chief of Police
Southwestern Community College District Police Department Room # 105D
