Crime Prevention

Student/Employee Responsibility and Crime Prevention

The cooperation and involvement of students, faculty and staff in the College’s Crime Prevention and Safety Program is essential.  Students and employees must assume responsibility for their personal safety and the security of their personal belongings by taking simple common sense precautions such as:

  • Walk in well-lighted areas and try to avoid walking alone at night.  Carry a whistle in your hand when walking alone.
  • Always lock your car doors and never leave valuables in sight.
  • When returning to your vehicle, have your keys in hand.  Always check the rear seat before entering your vehicle.  Lock your doors upon entering.
  • Know the locations of campus pay telephones and Call boxes.
  • Avoid working or studying in buildings alone at any time.
  • Report any suspicious or criminal activity to security or any other college employee.

One of the essential ingredients of any successful crime prevention program is an informed public.  It is the intent of the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District to inform students and staff in a timely manner of any criminal activity or security problem which may pose a reasonable threat to their physical safety.  Such information will normally be distributed to students through crime specific fliers and bulletin board notices.  Staff will be informed through fliers, e-mail or internal memorandum

Another critical element of a campus safety program is training.  The Department of Campus Safety sponsors programs on various topics ranging from sexual awareness to substance abuse prevention.

Finally, all effective crime prevention programs include some measure of people watching out for one another.  All staff and students are asked to be alert, security conscious, and involved.

Timely Warnings

One of the essential ingredients of any successful crime prevention program is an informed public.  It is the intent of the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District to inform students and staff in a timely manner of any criminal activity or security problem, which may pose a reasonable threat to their physical safety.  In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of the  Director of Campus Safety or the college President, constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” will be issued.  Such information will normally be distributed to students through crime specific fliers and bulletin board notices.  Staff will be informed through fliers, e-mail or internal memorandum.  Internet bulletins or other electronic alerts may also be used.
