The District maintains a Police Department to investigate crimes and to arrest violators on or about District properties. The Police Department keeps and makes available to students, staff, and the public its crime statistics for review at any time.
All persons who are at SRJC should practice the same basic common sense crime prevention strategies to minimize their risk of becoming the victim of criminal activity.
The Police Department provides crime prevention and personal safety seminars throughout the school year.
Who are the District Police?
Police Officers – These are paid employees of the District who have been hired and trained to provide basic police services just like police officers hired for cities and the county. They patrol District properties, prevent crime, investigate crimes, apprehend violators, and submit criminal cases to the District Attorneys office for prosecution. They also investigate SRJC rules and regulation violations and refer violators to appropriate college administrators.
Support Staff – Paid employees of the District are hired and trained to provide support services to the college community through the Police Department.
Dispatchers are highly trained operators, most times with years of experience at different city and county Law Enforcement agencies. Their duties include filtering incoming calls, send appropriate law, fire or ambulance units, process all law enforcement related records and manage foot traffic inside the police station lobby.
Community Service Officers serve as parking enforcement officers. They perform a varity of tasks such as battery jumps, LiveScan and are site security officers at various locations.
Parking Attendants work to control staff parking lots during the day time.
Clerical employees assist with department paperwork.
Student Cadets – These are students recruited
from SRJC’s Administration of Justice Program who are trained to
work for the Police Department in a support role by patrolling the
College, acting as a visible uniformed presence to deter crime, and
to observe and report to regular department employees any criminal
or District rules and regulation violations.
What kind of training do college Police Officers get?
Police Officers successfully complete an extensive police academy consisting of more than 700 hours of training prior to working as an officer. New officers must also successfully complete an on-the-job Field Training Officer Program with a training officer for three to four months prior to working alone as an officer.
New officers must also successfully complete their probationary period of at least 12 months in order to be an officer in good standing.
