Safety Tips

  • To report an emergency occurring on campus dial (707) 527-1000 to reach the campus Police Department. 
  • Know your location! If you are calling from a mobile phone you must be able tell us where you are if you need help. 
  • Get to know the names of buildings, fields, streets, etc. around campus. 
  • Lock your car doors anytime you leave the car. It takes only seconds and can save you from being victimized. 
  • Don’t leave obvious valuables in plain view in your car. Sometimes, availability is all that is needed to cause someone to break in and rob you. 
  • Check the back seat of your car before you get in. You may have an uninvited passenger. 
  • Be extra alert as you approach your vehicle to get in it. Many suspects use this as an opportunity to commit a crime. 
  • Walk with a friend when out after dark. Walk on designated pathways and well-lit areas. There is truly safety in numbers. Be aware of your surroundings. 
  • If you are alone and do not feel comfortable walking to your car, call the Police Department for an escort. 
  • Don’t walk while staring at your phone; you may become the victim of an accident or a crime. 
  • Report any criminal or suspicious activities or other emergencies that occur on campus to the Santa Rosa Junior College Police Department. 
  • Every time a crime is reported, there is a chance to catch the criminal. When a crime goes unreported, the suspect will become more brazen and strike again. 
  • In most sexual assaults, the victim and suspect knew each other prior to the assault. Knowing someone does not guarantee a sexual assault will not occur. 
  • Limit the amount of personal information you share online. Some services archive messages indefinitely, providing key-word search capabilities to find anything that you ever posted on a public site.
