Reporting Emergencies or Criminal Activity

  To report an emergency, a crime or criminal activity on campus, call the Security Office. Shoreline Community College Security Officers will respond to all reports of emergencies, crimes and/or criminal activity. Officers will complete an "Incident Report" for any crime occurring on Shoreline Community College property. Reports are confidential within the guidelines established by the General Education Provisions Act (Buckley Amendment) and the Campus Security Act. (Amended 1998). As a service to the Shoreline Community College community, some reports are made available free-of-charge, to the complainant to assist him/her to file an insurance claim.

Crime reports may be made at any time of day, seven days, per week, and 365 days per year. Remember - prompt reporting greatly improves campus safety and security.
