Safety is Our Priority

It is the job of Los Rios Police Department (LRPD) to protect our students, employees, and visitors – but campus safety is still a shared responsibility!

If you see or hear something unusual or suspicious, call the police at (916) 558-2221. By taking this shared responsibility seriously, we all help create a safe environment that fosters teaching and learning.
