Campus police officers, assisted by student police cadets, provide law enforcement and security services to the campus community. Officers patrol the campus by vehicle, foot, bicycle, and cart(s), and are trained to respond to all calls, including active shooter incidents. Anyone observing or having knowledge of possible criminal activity on or about the campus is asked to promptly report the facts of the situation to the on-duty campus police officer.
The Campus Police Office phone number is (805) 678-5805 (from campus phones dial 5805). You can also reach the campus police office by dialing 678-5800. For emergencies, dial 911 from College phones or 911 from pay phones. This will put you in touch with the California Highway Patrol (CHP). The CHP will then forward the information to Oxnard Police and to the college Dispatch center.
You can also provide an anonymous tip by calling (805) 639-8629, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by using the TipNow app on your smartphone. Students who want to be notified of emergencies on campus are encouraged to login to the my.vcccd.edu student portal and click on “Maintain Emergency Alert Information” on the “My College” tab under “My Student Records.” Detailed guidance on matters concerning student conduct and traffic regulations is provided in the appendices of this Catalog.
