Public Safety and Security
TVCC has a modest campus security force. In an emergency, dialing 9-911 from campus phones, or 911 from a personal cell phone will connect you to local emergency services. In other situations, dial (541) 212-9598 to reach Ontario campus security or (541) 212-9576 for the Physical Plant/Campus Security Director.
Campus emergency and incidents of crime should be reported to Campus Security as soon as possible. The Supervising Manager or Director will notify the appropriate TVCC Administrator.

TVCC staff and security personnel are trained to keep an eye out for situations and circumstances that may present a risk to the public on campus. Physical facilities such as lighting and exterior doors are routinely inspected to ensure the safety of faculty, staff, and students.

Common sense and thinking about safety is always the greatest asset in the prevention of crime. Lock your doors; secure your personal possessions out of sight; don't walk alone at night. Individuals who are acting suspiciously or who are in unauthorized areas need to be reported to Campus Security personnel at once.
