Campus Safety/Security

In accordance with the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 annual reports of crime statistics and campus policies concerning crime and security on campus are made available to all students and staff.  Detailed information is provided to each student via the Student Handbook and distributed to staff each fall quarter.

It is our mission to provide students and staff at Pacifica campuses with a safe and secure environment in which to work and learn.  Any crime or emergency shall be reported immediately to the Campus Security Official or his deputy.

Pacifica Security personnel are on duty 24 hours a day, 356 days a year.  Pacifica enforces a 10:00 P.M. curfew on all campuses.  All buildings on campus are locked at 11:00 P.M. and patrolled throughout the night.  Special coded entry locks are used to secure the living facilities. 

Any member of the security department or any other campus official may be contacted to report a crime or other emergency.  They will notify local authorities and the Campus Security Official.  Pacifica Security personnel are equipped with cell phones.  As in any emergency situation, call 9-1-1 for assistance.  At the La Casa-Ladera Campus and the Best Western Inn crimes shall be reported to the respective Administration Official, who, in turn, will notify local law enforcement and the Pacifica Security Official.

Historically, the residential location of Pacifica campuses and the adult student population support a crime free environment.

The report below illustrates the actual number of crimes reported to campus authorities during the past three years. Beginning with the 1999 statistics, additional new categories have been added. They include manslaughter, hate crimes, and persons referred for campus disciplinary action for violation of liquor, drug, and weapons laws. In addition, the crime statistics are broken into the following 4 groups: offenses that occur on campus, offenses that occur in or at a non-campus building, offenses that occur in the residence halls, and offenses that occur on public property areas contiguous to the campus.
