The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is a service-oriented policing organization where crime prevention is the top priority.
We maintain high visibility in all areas of the campus to help prevent crime before it happens or to witness crimes in progress. We welcome information from students regarding any criminal activity. We consider students a vital resource for the college sheriff for crime prevention at LAVC.
The LAVC Sheriff's Station operates 24 hrs per day/7 days per week.
The College Sheriff Station is located in the Maintenance & Operations Building next to Parking Lot "D" (View campus map). The Sheriff Station number is (818) 947-2911; our campus extension telephone number is #2911 (from any campus office phone).
ABOUT THE LAVC SHERIFF'S STATION
The Los Angeles Community College District contracts the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for college law enforcement services. This contract supplies the college with the full capability of a large law enforcement bureau and adds professionalism to the job of protecting students and employees. The nine campuses are organized under the leadership of the Sheriff's Community College Bureau.
Each campus has its own mini-sheriff's station which is staffed and equipped in the same manner as a regular station. The Los Angeles Valley College Station is staffed with L.A. County Sheriff Deputies, Sheriff Department Security Officers and College Cadets. This staffing provides 24-hour security coverage for all persons visiting and using the Los Angeles Valley College campus. LAVC is privileged to have maintained a low crime rate to population ratio (20,000 students) and works diligently to maintain the effort. The campus is in the process of upgrading its security systems to include emergency telephones, security cameras and alarm systems to further enhance campus safety.
