Your call is handled through the centralized dispatch system for all colleges and locations of DCCCD. When contacting police, always identify yourself and the location (college, building, floor and room) that is of concern to you.
(Why call campus police instead of city police? Because
the response will generally be faster.)
Students and employees who are deaf or hard of hearing, or prefer to text, can text their college or location police in the event of an emergency or to report a crime.
Text DCCCD to 67283, and DCCCD Police dispatch will answer you by text.
In addition to the DCCCD Mobile App's quick-dial feature for the campus police we offer a specific app designed with only your security in mind from Rave Guardian available in the:
Health, Wellness and Title IX page to learn about the services DCCCD offers to meet the health and wellness needs of students, faculty and staff. You can also get information about your rights under Title IX and find out what to do if you feel you have been the victim of gender-based discrimination, harassment or sexual misconduct.
In March 2013, a new Campus Sexual Assault Violence Elimination Act was passed that updates the Jeanne Clery Act to create transparency, accountability, education and collaboration. The act seeks to address the violence women face on campus. Watch this presentation created by the DCCCDPD, to discover student and staff rights under the act as well as college responsibilities.
