Crime Prevention


Crime Prevention is student and employee awareness of their environment.  It is the willingness to look out for one another and to report suspicious activities immediately to Campus Safety.  Students and employees must be aware of their surrounding and develop a perception of what seems out of place, or out of the ordinary.  Do not take chances, what may appear harmless could be serious.  Fortunately, the right attitude, actions and awareness can help protect you and your belongings.

  • Keep a list of serial numbers
  • Keep valuables out of sight

Preventing Crimes Against Persons:

  • Use the "Buddy System"
  • Walk tall, with pride
  • Do not wear flashy jewelry
  • Never be afraid to scream
  • Be aware of your surroundings
  • Walk with your keys in hand

It is the intent of Mt. San Jacinto College to inform students and staff, in a timely manner, of any criminal activity or security problems which may pose a reasonable threat to their physical safety.  Such information will be published and distributed to students, faculty and staff through campus publications, such as  in house memos, events, bulletins, and electronic mail.


Regular Patrol:

Deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department, as well as Campus Safety Officers, patrol the campus by foot, bicycle and vehicle.  Uniformed patrol provides a visual deterrent to potential thieves and also provides high visibility to the public in general, should contact be desired.
