Community Colleges Policing Services

The Sheriff's Department's Community College Bureau provides exclusive contract policing and security services to the Los Angeles Community College District, the largest community college district in the nation. With 9 campuses located throughout Los Angeles County and a student population of 130,000, the District serves more than 36 cities and communities covering an area of more than 882 square miles. The Los Angeles Community College District comprises 8% of all California community college enrollments.

Campus policing is particularly unique to law enforcement because of the nature of the educational environment and the governing state and federal regulations. Our mission in campus policing is to keep the campuses and students safe from crime and increase the quality of life in the educational environment. This is particularly vital as the Community Colleges compete for enrollment within Los Angeles County. Utilizing sworn Deputy Sheriffs with a large contingent of non-sworn Sheriff's Security Officers, the Community College Bureau has molded its enforcement style to meet these demands. Examples of routine services performed include the administration of first aid to injured students, assisting with vehicle problems, assisting faculty and staff with classroom needs, parking enforcement, participating in various administrative proceedings and disciplinary matters, patrolling the campuses for safety hazards, supervising cadet personnel, providing student escort services and assisting with emergency response planning and preparedness. With its own investigative team, Community College Bureau detectives aggressively pursue any crimes that negatively impact the safety and security of students and faculty.

Bureau personnel are highly visible on each campus, employing bicycles and golf carts to provide quick access to all areas of the various school grounds. The Community College Bureau works cooperatively with outside law enforcement agencies, as well as the Department's Transit Services Bureau, to provide a strong sworn presence among the campuses.
