Police And Emergency Services
Police Services provides police patrols and services whenever classes are in session as well as holidays and weekends. San José-Evergreen District Police Officers are vested with full law enforcement powers and responsibilities, identical to the local police or sheriff in your home community. The officers are trained at accredited police academies and receive additional training in first aid, firearms, defensive tactics, legal updates, evidence gathering, traffic investigations, as outlined by Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training. The District maintains a mutual aid policy with the San José Police Department for after-hours incidents and to provide assistance in situations which Police Services does not have proper equipment, expertise and/or staffing.
District Police Officers are responsible for a full range of public safety services, including all crime reports, investigations, medical emergencies, fire emergencies, traffic accidents, enforcement of laws regulating underage drinking, possession of alcohol on campus, and the use of controlled substances, weapons, gambling and all other incidents requiring police assistance.
Police Services have access to all criminal justice automated information systems and routinely share information on criminal investigations with the San José Police Department, the Santa Clara Sheriff’s Office, and other relevant law enforcement agencies. The serial numbers of property that has been stolen from the campuses is reported through the National Crime Information Center (NCIC).
- Assistance And Safety Escorts
Police Services will provide you with assistance with vehicle jump starts, or summoning a tow truck or locksmith to assist you in unlocking your vehicle. We will not attempt to open vehicles due to liability purposes. In a situation such as an animal or child in a locked car, Police Services may use a reasonable amount of force to enter into a vehicle. We will also assist family members in contacting students who are in class if there is a serious family emergency. Police Services provides personnel to accompany staff and students to and from their vehicles. This service can be summoned by calling Police Services during operational business hours.
- Parking Enforcement
Police Services maintains a Parking Enforcement division primarily staffed by non-sworn Community Service Officers who are tasked to ensure all California State Vehicle Code and District Parking Regulations are adhered to within District jurisdiction. Parking regulations are strictly enforced Monday-Saturday from 7am-11pm. For more information on the District’s policies and regulations, you can visit this link on the website:

- Criminal Investigations
The District Police Department assigns all criminal investigation work to the patrol officers who are initially assigned to the incident. It is therefore of vital importance that the patrol staff are equally as skilled with investigative techniques as they are with patrol procedures. Some of the following incidents are typical of a police officer’s normal investigative assignment and workload.
Sexual Assault and other related Sex Crimes, Juvenile Crimes, Domestic Violence, Theft and Burglary, Forgery, Fraud and other Financial Crimes, Terrorist Threats, Annoying and Harassing Communication.
- Sex Offender Registration
Section 290 of the California Penal Code requires people convicted of certain sexual offenses to register with the local law enforcement agency responsible for the jurisdiction in which they reside within 5 working days of their birthday, and within 5 working days of changing their address. Law enforcement cannot dictate where an offender lives, as long as the offender registers his / her residence with the appropriate jurisdiction. California law requires sex offenders to register with their local police or sheriff, which places their names in a statewide database. The State of California Registered Sex Offenders database can be accessed at http://www.meganslaw.ca.gov/. (Complete requirements are listed in Section 290 of the California Penal Code.)
In addition, California Penal Code Section 290.01 requires every person who was convicted of a sex offense to register with the Campus Police Department of a College or University within Five (5) days where he/she is:
- Enrolled as a Full-time student.
- Enrolled as a Part-time Student.
- Employed as a Full-time Staff, Faculty, or Instructor.
- Employed as a Part-time Staff, Faculty, or Instructor.
- Employed as a Full-time or Part-time Classified employee.
- Employed as a volunteer.
- A contractor who is contracted by the College or University to work on campus.
- A carrier driver who delivers to that College or University more than 14 consecutive days or 30 days in a calendar year (i.e. Water delivery, Mail, VTA drivers, Outreach drivers, Armored car drivers, Telephone, Gas, and Electricity technicians, Computer technicians, Office supply drivers, and others).
This section does not relieve the person to register as a Sex Offender with the jurisdiction where he/she is residing. The registrations as a Sex Offender with a College or University Police Departments are in addition to the registration with the local police and sheriff’s departments.
Anyone needing to register per Section 290 of the California Penal Code must go to the SJECCD Police Department at 3095 Yerba Buena Road, San José CA 95135 or at 2100 Moorpark Avenue, San José CA 95128.
