Welcome to Mt. San Antonio College Public Safety Police Department’s website. Through community partnerships, we provide a safe and secure learning environment to the campus community by maintaining a proactive approach to crime prevention and problem solving, enabling our students the ability to obtain a quality education. The Department works in conjunction with local, county, state, and federal agencies to accomplish our mission of safety.

The Department pledges to respond to the changing needs of the Mt. San Antonio College environment using the Community Oriented Policing concept. Thus, always providing a customer service atmosphere to our students, faculty, staff, and visitors as our primary concern.

Instilling in the officers that serve the campus community the philosophy of honesty, integrity, morals, values, dedication, excellence, and loyalty is the driving force to delivering the highest level of professionalism. The officers are motivated by customer service and enjoy serving the rich diversity of our campus community. Our Department motto is “Dedicated to Education and Safety.”

A truly safe campus is achieved through cooperation of students, faculty, staff, administrators, and visitors.  Please report any suspicious behavior or activity to our officers 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year long.  There is always an officer on-duty who will respond to calls for assistance.

Mt. SAC's Public Safety Police Department works diligently to protect us all on campus. They enforce parking regulations to ensure fair and adequate accommodations for our visitors, students, faculty and staff. While every effort is made by the department to keep our campus safe, each of us has the ultimate responsibility for our own personal safety. We have provided information and tips below, as well as within this site, to heighten campus awareness.


For your information, we post a campus security report annually on this website, as well as report a timely advisory of crimes to Campus Police and local police agencies.


Public pay phones are found in many locations on campus. These are coin-operated public phones for general use.

There are also Emergency phones in each parking lot area and many others designated all throughout the campus. These phones are a direct line to campus police for emergency use purposes, so they do not have a dial and do not require coins.

Public Safety Escort Service

To enhance safety, Mt. SAC offers an evening Campus Escort Service:

Monday - Thursday 6:30 - 10:15 p.m.

Escort stations are located at various campus locations. Escorts can be identified by their yellow jackets and I.D. badges. Call (909) 274-4555 to arrange for an Escort. Click here to view a map of locations.
