Crime Prevention Tips

Crime prevention is student and employee awareness and participation. It is the willingness to look out for one another and to report suspicious activity immediately to the Campus Police. Campus members must be aware of their surroundings and develop a perception of what seems out of place or out of the ordinary. Do not take chances. What may appear to be harmless, could be serious.

It is the intention of Cerritos College to inform students and staff in a timely manner of any criminal activity or security hazard which may pose a reasonable threat to their physical safety. Such information will be provided through the student publication "Talon Marks", the weekly "Calendar", and through in-house memos and bulletins.
