For Non-Emergencies

In 1990, the U.S. Congress enacted the "Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990," which requires colleges and universities to disclose information about crime on and around their campuses. This law was renamed in 1992 to the "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act". The San Bernardino Community College District provides this information in the Annual Security Report that is available to all campus community members and the public. This report provides statistical, policy, and procedural information required by the Clery Act. The full text of this report can be accessed from our website at: http://sbccd.org/police or http://valleycollege.edu/asr2012

In addition to being available at various offices on campus or at the police office in Campus Center room 100.
