What We Do

The Santa Barbara City College Campus Security Department is committed in providing a safe and secure environment for all students, staff and visitors by establishing a peaceful learning atmosphere where all people can attend safely and without fear. We are also committed to developing and exploring new and innovative ways to achieve our goals in providing a safer environment. We strive to provide the college community with outstanding customer service while balancing the enforcement of the policies and procedures that we are charged to uphold.

One of the primary objectives of the Campus Security Department is to make the campus secure for students, staff and visitors. Campus security officers patrol the college's East and West campuses including the parking lots. Although they go through training, SBCC security officers are not peace officers. Campus security officers wear blue shirts with yellow security lettering and yellow jackets with blue security lettering as uniforms and while on evening patrol, the officers carry flashlights at all times.  The officers also carry walkie-talkies which give them instant communication with the local police. Among other duties Security is also responsible for parking enforcement on campus.


In the event of an emergency please call Campus Security at extension 2400 from a campus phone or from a cell phone call (805) 730-4200 or dial 911 (direct police/fire emergency line). Campus Security also provides escorts and battery starts. Campus emergency phones are located throughout the campus. See campus map for locations.
