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.



During New Student Orientation, safety procedures and crime awareness policies and procedures are discussed.  Health and safety presentations and programs are frequently held on campus during the academic year.

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. If a problem is observed, please report it to the Physical Plant/Campus Security Director by calling (541) 881-5706 or (541) 212-9576 (after hours emergency contact).

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.
