Our full-time, unarmed, uniformed officers patrol campus on foot, on bicycles and in marked cars to respond to incidents and provide safety escorts. All officers are certified in first aid and CPR. Card access systems secure buildings after hours and blue-light emergency phones are in strategic locations on campus. The College has a written Memorandum of Understanding with the Los Angeles Police Department and calls upon LAPD’s Northeast Division for support when needed.
