About Campus Safety & Security

Creating a safe and secure campus requires the involvement of all community members. Working together to mitigate the consequences of crimes, natural disasters and other hazards; planning and preparing prompt and deliberate responses to these situations; and establishing means to help the community recover, are all phases of campus safety and security management.

Beyond our efforts to work together as a campus community to maintain safety and security, institutions of higher education are legally required to mitigate the impact of threats to campus safety and security through effective all-hazard emergency preparedness. As an example, under the federal Jeanne Clery Act 1 of 1998, institutions must issue timely warnings to the campus community to inform affected persons of crimes considered to be a threat to students and employees. This website contains many of the resources necessary to meet these requirements, as well as other training and informational resources to our faculty, staff, students, visitors, and community members.

As a community, we have the opportunity to learn from each safety and security situation and work toward creating and maintaining safe and secure environment. This website is intended to serve all of our community members, as it takes an entire community, including safety and security professionals, and informed and prepared community members, to build and maintain a safe and secure environment. Working together, we can continue to make Sacramento State a safe and well-prepared community.
