Chief’s Welcome Message

A Message from the San José-Evergreen Community College District Police Department

On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the San José-Evergreen Community College District Police Department it is our pleasure to welcome you to San José City College. The safety and well being of our students, faculty, staff and visitors is our paramount priority. As members of the San José-Evergreen campus community we all share the responsibility of maintaining a safe and healthy environment.

The District Police Department is committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment in which our faculty and staff can prepare our students for academic success now and career challenges in the future. The women and men of the District Police Department are a diverse blend of professionals who are committed to the highest standards of professionalism and service. Each member is dedicated to making our campuses the safest place to be for faculty, staff, students and visitors.

We invite you to visit this site regularly as some of the information may change. To assure a truly safe campus requires not just the efforts of the Police Department but also the cooperation and the understanding of the entire district and campus community. We invite you to review our services, crime prevention information, safety escort service, reporting procedures, crime statistics and other information available to you on this website.  

Campus Police 

The safety of San Jose City College is ensured by our own San Jose-Evergreen Community College District Police Department. In partnership with our community, the mission of our campus police is to deliver quality service with commitment, compassion, and professionalism. This provides a safe and secure environment, ensuring a better quality of life for our students, staff, and community. Campus police accomplish this through
knowledge, integrity, and high ethical standards.

The campus Safety Committee meets twice per month to address any safety concerns and actively engages in assessing campus-wide safety. Initiatives such as our pilot camera program, installation of new emergency phones, and perimeter fencing project continue to improve overall safety on campus.
