The Palomar College Police Department encourages the use of facility and campus infrastructure that aids in the prevention of crime, to include:

  • Interior/Exterior lighting

  • Elevated monitoring platform

  • Highly trained professional police officers

  • Palomar College Police Department Escort Program

The Palomar College Police Department has designed and implemented a series of crime awareness guidelines for Students, Staff and Faculty at Palomar College.  These guidelines encourage the Palomar College Community to:

  • Always be aware of your surroundings
  • Avoid the use of shortcuts or isolated areas of the campuses
  • If you observe a crime situation or witness a person in trouble, use any legal options you feel deemed appropriate and safe (i.e. run, contact, yell, call the campus police, etc.)
  • Use Palomar College Police Department Escort Services. These services are available Monday through Friday during normal school hours.
