To ensure the protection of students, officers from the Claremont Colleges Department of Campus Safety patrol the seven campuses at all times in order to make sure there are no crimes being committed or suspicious people wandering the campuses, and that students are not in distress. Students are encouraged to download LiveSafe to their phones. LiveSafe is a free personal safety mobile application for students, staff, faculty, and the community to engage in two-way conversation with Campus Safety. Through the app, community members are able to report information, request assistance or a safety escort, notify emergency contacts, and view a safety map.
CMC also has a dedicated Public Safety staff patrolling our campus. Public Safety are first responders to emergency calls and provide security at social gatherings and special events. The officers work proactively with students and student organizations to plan safe events, deter crimes and petty thefts of bikes, skateboards, or other personal property. They identify trends and environmental conditions that warrant attention (low lighted areas, unsafe conditions of physical structures, etc.), and they provide trainings on theft prevention, bystander intervention techniques, emergency response, and other safety interventions.
Every residence hall has at least one Resident Assistant, who is trained in safety and emergency procedures, and regularly briefed on any security issues that may arise. CMC has a dean on-call for after-hour emergencies who can be contacted through the Campus Safety department.
