Community Policing

The San Diego Community College Police Department is a community policing agency. We see ourselves as a part of the college community and strive to work with the college community to provide a safe learning environment for our students, faculty, staff, visitors and neighbors.

We believe in problem solving to identify and deal with community issues. We prefer community members consult us before serious problems arise, instead of waiting for after-the-fact intervention.

We believe each member of the college community bears some responsibility for campus security. To that end, we solicit information from community members and provide information and training so that community members may better deal with the challenges we all face.

We believe in and foster partnerships. We work closely with campus safety committees, Student Affairs offices and Facility Services personnel. Externally we enjoy a working relationship with the San Diego Police Department and the San Diego City Schools Police.

We strive to make our officers visible and approachable. Our officers patrol the campuses on foot, by bike and in marked patrol cars.

We encourage participation. We offer opportunities to students for employment, work study programs, and internships.

We believe in crime prevention through environmental design. Working with district architects and planners, we review existing facilities and new construction plans to reduce or eliminate conditions conducive to crime.

We believe working together is a more effective way to deal with crime and disorder. If you would like to help, contact us at any College Police office location or e-mail us at:
