Campus Safety Services

Campus Safety's mission is to use all its resources to keep the campus community as safe as possible, and to provide service to the campus community.  The following list are some of the services Campus Safety can provide.

Event Security Services Request

Campus Safety offers security services for events held on university property.  A minimum of two weeks notice is recommended. To request Campus Safety security services, please complete the Security Request Form. If you have any questions or would like to discuss the event before submitting this form, please send email to campussafety@scu.edu 

Crime and Incident Summary  

Campus Safety publishes a Crime/Incident Summary every day that reflects crimes and major incidents that occurred during the previous 24-hour period or weekend. The summary is provided to key administrators in the university and campus media.

Campus Alert

If a situation arises in which the campus community may be at special risk due to an incident involving a crime and/or possible suspect(s), Campus Safety distributes a Crime Alert Bulletin  via email, text and phone, notifying the community as quickly as possible. 

To receive an emergency alert notice, you must be enrolled in SCU Campus Alert. To enroll, please follow the instructions on this page.

Security Escorts

Campus Safety provides security escorts to/from SCU property during the hours of darkness or upon special request.  Campus Safety may limit how far away from campus the escort may go based upon staffing and activity levels.  Escorts CAN NOT be provided to bars or parties, or to run errands.

Lost & Found

Campus Safety operates the University's main Lost and Found Service.  Found items are maintained by Campus Safety at the main office.  If you have lost an item of personal property, you can call 408-554-4441 to find out if the property was turned in.  

Lockouts

Campus Safety will let in residents who have locked themselves out of their rooms whenever the Housing Office (RL) is closed, typically 5 PM to 8 AM, Monday through Friday, weekends and holidays.  Campus Safety will also escort residents in and out of their room during the intervals when the halls are closed to the residents (holiday break, spring break) to retrieve items upon approval of the RL RD on duty.  RL may charge the student a fee for the services.

Vehicle Service

Campus Safety can provide jump starts for vehicles with dead batteries on campus property or within reasonable distance from the main campus.  Campus Safety can also attempt to open vehicles for owners who have locked the keys inside. However, the newer locking/anti-theft systems may not allow for this service.  Vehicle services require the vehicle's owner to sign a liability waiver.
