The Southwestern Community College District's Annual Security Report is published to provide important information to students, faculty and staff members, visitors, and the wider community at large to promote safety, security, and crime prevention on and around the Southwestern College campus locations by identifying crime statistics, crime reporting procedures, emergency preparedness and response procedures, victim assistance and resources, educational programs, and other vital information.
The Annual Security Report is published in compliance with the “Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act” that requires colleges and universities in the United States that participate in federal student financial aid programs to disclose information about crimes occurring on and around their campuses.
The College Police Department posts criminal activity on a Daily Crime Log that can be accessed on the College Police website or upon demand at each campus location. The log is updated within two business days of a crime being reported and includes the date reported, date and time of occurrence, nature of the crime, the campus and location, general information, and the disposition.
The College Police Department also posts crime alerts and other safety information on its website.
As part of the community-oriented policing philosophy, the College Police Department offers crime prevention and safety tips to the District’s faculty, staff, and students as part of presentations and as requested. Anyone interested in having an Officer speak to his or her classroom or group should contact the College Police at (619)482-6380.
