Timely Warning/Crime Alert Bulletins
The District Police Department believes that a well-informed community is an integral component in maintaining the safest campuses and facilities possible. It is the policy of District to have the Chief of Police, and/or designee, confer as necessary and applicable with administrators, legal counsel, and surrounding law enforcement agencies, after a violent crime occurs or a crime that is deemed by the Chief of Police and/or designee to represent a continuing threat to students, staff, faculty, or visitors and disseminate “timely warning” crime alert information within 24 to 48 hours, as well as post and disseminate hard copies of crime bulletins, alerting the campus community. Bulletins also include prevention information to assist members of our educational community from becoming a victim of a similar crime. Bulletins shall include, but are not limited to, those crimes that are listed in the Clery Act.
This area is reserved for Timely Warning/Crime Alert Bulletins. If no crimes have occurred in the last 48 hours that are deemed by the Chief of Police and/or designee to represent a continuing threat to students, staff, faculty, or visitors, there will be no Timely Warning/Crime Alert Bulletin(s) posted here.
AlertU Emergency Notification System
You can be notified immediately by text message of campus closures and emergencies by signing up for AlertU, the college’s emergency notification system. Marin Community College District Police Department, with sponsorship from alertu.org, has an emergency SMS messaging platform to enhance communication services during crisis situations.
AlertU will allow Campus Police to broadcast critical information, in real time, to the mobile devices (cell phones, etc.) of all employees and the student body. This is particularly important for those who may be in, or near, a crisis zone.
To sign up, go to AlertU and follow the directions. There is no cost to sign up for this service; however, standard text message rates may apply.
