To report a crime, contact Public Safety at 415.703.9510 or 9510 from an on-campus phone (non-emergencies) or dial 9-1-1 (emergencies). Any suspicious activity or person should be reported. In addition, you may report a crime to any faculty or staff member or through the CCA Cares web page. Some individuals may wish to make certain reports confidentially. SEE STAFF/FACULTY: Discrimination/Unlawful Harassment Policy OR STUDENTS: Sexual Misconduct Policy
All members of the college community who leave either campus after dark are strongly encouraged to use the "Buddy System" and walk with someone you know. If you are unable to walk with a "buddy," contact the Public Safety Department to request an escort. Public Safety officers are on duty and available to perform this service* 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Escorts are available in and around the Oakland Campus, San Francisco Campus and Webster Hall*.
Public Safety Officers are able to provide escorts up to six blocks around the campus and the Rockridge and 19th Street BART stations. At the San Francisco campus, we can provide escorts to the bus stations that service the BART station and will wait a reasonable time for the bus to arrive. The general rule is 15 minutes out and 15 minutes back for a total of 30 minutes round trip (including wait time).
We ask that community members requesting an escort plan accordingly so that our officers can assist them and get back to the campus in a timely manner to avoid inconveniencing others who may be requesting assistance as well. Anyone interested in requesting an escort can reach Public Safety on the appropriate campus by calling 415-703-9510 from any off-campus or mobile phone or just 9510 from any on-campus phone.
*Escorts are available at Dogpatch Studios 7 days a week, 7pm-11am (415-369-7438)
