1 A Message from the Chief of Police I would like to extend a warm welcome all the new and returning faculty, staff, and students to the San Jose/Evergreen Community College District (SJECCD). Your safety is the primary concern of our police department as you complete your educational goals and provide quality instruction and services to our students. As members of this outstanding SJECCD educational community we all share a responsibility to work together to maintain the safest working and learning environment possible. The District Police Department is here to work together with you 7 days a week,, 365 days a year providing law enforcement service and protecting all persons and property on or about the campuses and property of the District. We are a fully certified police department within the State of California and our Police Officers and staff pride themselves in a community-oriented approach to policing and law enforcement. In addition to investigating crimes and enforcing laws, the department also provides crime prevention and personal safety programs throughout the District. The District maintains two police stations in San Jose, located at 3095 Yerba Buena Road, on the Evergreen Valley College (EVC) campus Central Utilities Building, and at 2100 Moorpark Ave., SC-108, at the Student Center Building of San Jose City College (SJCC).

For further information about the police department or the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act see the Police Department website at: or call Police Dispatch at (408) Antonio Delgado Interim Chief of Police
2 What is the Jeanne Clery Disclosure Act? The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, codified at 20 USC 1092 (f) as a part of the Higher Education Act of 1965, is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose certain timely and annual information about campus crime and security policies. All public and private post secondary educational institutions participating in federal student aid programs are required to comply with it. The law, originally enacted by Congress in 1990 as the Campus Security Act, was initiated by Howard and Connie Clery after their daughter Jeanne was tragically murdered at Lehigh University in Amendments to the Act in 1998 renamed it in memory of Jeanne Clery. The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to publish an annual report every year by October 1st that contains 3 years of crime statistics and certain policy statements including sexual assault policies which assure basic victims rights, the law enforcement authority of campus police, and where the students should go to report crimes. The complete text of the Clery Act and the U.S. Department of Education regulations are available on the Security On Campus, Inc. web site at The San Jose/Evergreen Community College District Police Department is responsible for gathering crime statistics and providing safety information to all students, staff, faculty, visitors, and prospective students and employees of the District. The annual security report for Evergreen Valley College, San Jose City College and the entire San Jose/Evergreen Community College District includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the San Jose/Evergreen Community College District, and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. In accordance with mandated reporting requirements, information concerning the monitoring and recording of any criminal activity in which students have engaged, at off campus locations and/or within student organizations that are officially recognized by the District, are gathered from local police agencies. These agencies include any City, County, State, or Federal agencies that may have relevant information and the statistics are published in this disclosure. The report also includes institutional policies concerning campus safety and security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault and other matters. The District Police Department is aware that crimes may go unreported to law enforcement and encourages employees of the District, who have significant responsibility for students and student activities, to report any crimes that they may have become aware of in their daily contact with students to the District Police. As a reminder to those employees who have significant responsibility for students, a reporting form is sent out routinely to the campuses. Administrators, Vice Presidents, Deans, Directors, Department Heads, Faculty Advisors and Student Academic Advisors, Student Activities Advisors and Coordinators, and Athletic Coaches are some of the individuals typically included in the notification. Faculty (except for Advisors), Physicians, Psychologists, and most Clerical Staff are examples of employees who are not required to report under the Clery Act. All reports to the District Police can be made confidentially and anonymously in accordance with the reporting person s wishes. Crime prevention and personal safety information and pamphlets are available in the District Police Department and on the Police Department web site at: in Student Health Services, the campus newspapers, and in various student and staff publications through the District.

These law enforcement agencies provide crime statistics they have collected for crimes occurring on District properties or a radius around the properties requested. These statistics may include crimes that have occurred in private businesses and residences and is not required by law. The District does have any off or on campus fraternity or sorority houses. The District provides notification, via the District and College websites, course catalogues and other electronic and printed medium, that informs the community of the security report, a description of the contents, information regarding the availability of the report on the Internet, the electronic address to access the report, and a statement on how to obtain a paper copy, if desired.

Parking Enforcement
6 The District Police Department maintains a Parking Enforcement division primarily staffed by non-sworn Community Service Officers who are tasked to ensure all California State Vehicle Code and District Parking Regulations are adhered to within District jurisdiction. Parking regulations are strictly enforced Monday-Saturday from 7am-11pm. For more information on the District s policies and regulations, you can visit this link on the website: Criminal Investigations The District Police Department assigns all criminal investigation work to the patrol officers who are initially assigned to the incident. It is therefore of vital importance that the patrol staff are equally as skilled with investigative techniques as they are with patrol procedures. Some of the following incidents are typical of a police officer s normal investigative assignment and workload. Sexual Assault and other related Sex Crimes, Juvenile Crimes, Domestic Violence, Theft and Burglary, Forgery, Fraud and other Financial Crimes, Terrorist Threats, Annoying and Harassing Communication Sex Offender Registration Section 290 of the California Penal Code requires people convicted of certain sexual offenses to register with the local law enforcement agency responsible for the jurisdiction in which they reside within 5 working days of their birthday, and within 5 working days of changing their address.

(Complete requirements are listed in Section 290 of the California Penal Code.) In addition, California Penal Code Section requires every person who was convicted of a sex offense to register with the Campus Police Department of a College or University within Five (5) days where he/she is: 1.
