Campus Safety and Security
Safety and crime prevention starts with personal responsibility. Lack of vulnerability is the key. A criminal looks for and exploits perceived weaknesses. The less vulnerable the person, or vehicle appears, the less chance of a crime occurring.
Edmonds Community College has been fortunate in that our college's rate of crime has been relatively very low. Security is dedicated to making certain that it occurs as infrequently as possible.
- Walk with another person after dark in a well-lighted area or call Campus Security (425) 754-0154 (officer on duty), or (425) 754-0192 (secondary phone) for a security escort.
- Be aware of your surroundings and any signs that something is amiss or out of place.
- Park in a well-lighted area and lock your vehicle securely. Place all valuables out of sight.
- Do not leave your valuables unattended while on campus.
- Bicycles should always be locked in a bike rack. It is recommended the bicycles be engraved for identification.
- It is important to think about who you are and how you might respond to different situations. All criminals have the potential to be violent. This is the most important consideration when deciding what to do in a given situation.
