Reporting Crimes or Requests for Assistance
Routine Service Requests (707) 654-1176
On-Campus Emergencies- (707) 654-1111
Off-Campus Crimes/Police/Fire/Medical 9-1-1
The Police Department encourages all campus members to report all crimes, accidents, or incidents that occur on or near the campus. Reports may be made in person, by phone, or in writing. The individual making the report does not have to prove that a crime has occurred. Any suspicious activity is sufficient to warrant a call to the Police.
Please be prompt and accurate in reporting all criminal incidents and medical emergencies to us. When calls or reports are made to the police department, a Police Officer and/or Community Service Specialist (CSS) will respond. The focus of the initial response will be the safety of all persons involved in the incident. Police personnel will investigate each report and provide follow-up work as necessary to bring each incident to a final disposition. If outside assistance is needed (i.e., Vallejo Police, Fire, ambulance, etc.), the call will be placed by police dispatch. If your initial report is made to the Vallejo Police Department, please notify the Police in the event a "Timely Warning" will need to be sent to the CSU Maritime Academy community.
