Crime Awareness and Prevention

At the beginning of each fall and spring semester, Mesa Community College conducts a general student orientation program. This program includes information and instruction regarding college safety and security policies, procedures, and practices.

Timely reports of all criminal activity reported to Public Safety are made available through weekly updates. Copies of the Public Safety Reports are available in the Public Safety Office.

All students, employees, and visitors are encouraged to be active participants in the college's efforts to keep the campus a safe place. You can become involved by taking common sense precautions with your personal safety and the security of your property. Public Safety recommends that all members of the college community maintain a constant awareness of their surroundings and control of personal property. You also should report any observation of suspected crimes, unusual or suspicious activities, and emergencies to Public Safety.
