A Community Partnership in Safety
The Campus Safety Department works collaboratively with each and every stakeholder across the “7C’s” and the surrounding communities of the campus and you are an integral part of that relationship. We strive to create and maintain a positive atmosphere that enables and encourages learning in a safe, efficient, and responsible environment. In addition to these efforts, and to continue this success, it is imperative that everyone maintains a proactive and responsible approach towards their personal safety.
The Claremont Colleges enjoy a long-standing, strong and cooperative relationship with the City of Claremont as well as the Claremont Police and Los Angeles County Fire Departments. This partnership has proven itself to be mutually beneficial throughout the years. By utilizing a proactive approach to safety in which we emphasize information, preparation, and collaboration we continue to effectively design our crime prevention strategies based upon feedback from our campus communities and the professional application of that input through our safety professionals.
I encourage you to browse this site regularly and acquaint yourself with the services we provide, and I hope you will find the information helpful and informative. I welcome any questions, comments, or suggestions you have that may assist us in our continued efforts toward the goal of making The Claremont Colleges among the safest campuses in the country.
