We are committed to keeping our campus community safe.

Campus safety officers patrol campus 24 hours a day to respond to incidents, provide safety escorts, and enforce college policies. 

Card access systems secure buildings after hours and blue-light emergency phones are in strategic locations on campus.

Campus Safety maintains a Memorandum of Understanding with the Northeast Division of the Los Angeles Police Department and calls upon them for support when needed.
