Message from the Chief of Police
The College of Marin Police Department hereby respectfully submits the Annual Security Report.
This report, as required by the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses. In addition, the Act requires the college to provide policy statements regarding various safety and security measures, campus crime prevention program descriptions, and procedures to be followed during the investigation and prosecution of alleged sex offenses. According to our statistical data report, College of Marin is an extremely safe campus community with few violent assaults and minimal property crimes. There is no police department that can maintain safety alone: it must continue to be a collaborative effort with the college community. The men and women of the College of Marin Police Department are dedicated to our primary mission, which is maintaining a safe learning and working environment for our students, staff, and faculty.
Policy for Reporting the Annual Disclosure of Crime Statistics
The District Police Department prepares this report to comply with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. This report is a collaborative and comprehensive effort that includes the cooperation of law enforcement agencies surrounding MCCD campuses, centers, off-site facilities, and properties, the Student Services Division and Office of the Vice President of Student Services. Each entity provides crime statistics and/or information on their educational efforts and programs to comply with the Act.
To comply with the Act, we collect crime statistics from law enforcement agencies with concurrent law enforcement jurisdiction or jurisdiction surrounding Marin Community College District campuses, centers, off-site facilities, and properties owned or utilized by the District for college business, to include public property immediately adjacent to campuses and facilities. 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 not have any off or on-campus fraternity or sorority houses. Likewise, student organization recognition does not extend beyond the college, and student organizations are not
recognized to engage in activity off campus. Every paid part-time, full-time, adjunct, and short-term noncontinuing student, faculty, and classified employee receive a notice with their paycheck/notice of deposit, that informs them 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.
Employees and students also receive this same information when completing the application process for admission or employment in person or via the Internet. Additionally, notices regarding the existence of the security report, a brief description of its contents, information regarding the availability of the report on the Internet with the electronic address to access the report, and a statement on how to obtain a paper copy, if desired are included in the Echo Times, schedule of classes, in the Community Education Schedule of Classes, the Course Catalog, and on the Admissions, Records, and Enrollment Development and Human Resources websites to inform students, employees and prospective students and employees about the existence of the Security Report, the electronic address to access the report, and information on how to obtain a paper copy, if desired. Copies of the report may also be obtained at:
