About Us

The Chabot College Department of Campus Safety and Security is comprised of a unique partnership between Chabot College and the Hayward Police Department. The director is a sworn Hayward police sergeant who is augmented by a staff consisting of civilian campus safety officers, dispatchers, on-call campus safety officers, and student cadets. The Chabot-Las Positas Community College District and the Hayward Police Department have a written contract to identify the scope of services provided by each entity to serve the campus community (E.C. 67381). This blend of police and civilian staff affords a greater range of efficient services to our campus community. Officers are on duty at all times when classes are in session, and on weekends and holidays to patrol the campus. Officers enforce the laws of the United States, State of California and regulations adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District.

Our Peace and Campus Safety Officers

A Hayward Police Department Sergeant is contracted as the Director of Campus Safety and Security.  The Hayward Police Department Sergeant is a peace officer as defined in California Penal Code section 830.1(a).  Campus Safety Officers are appointed pursuant to section 70902 of the California Education Code. Campus Safety Officers are not peace officers, but as school security officers are provided special authority by the California Penal Code, Vehicle Code, and Education Code to enforce campus rules and regulations. Authority for arrests by Campus Safety Officers are authorized pursuant to California Penal Code section 837. All of our staff receive continuing professional training in first aid, CPR, emergency response, disaster preparedness, safety, and security each year.

Chabot College is concerned about the safety and welfare of all members of the college community and is committed to providing a safe and secure environment. Although the college has been fortunate in not having experienced a significant number of criminal incidents, it would not be honest to assume such incidents could not take place. Therefore, we have developed policies and procedures designed to prevent or minimize the potential for criminal events before they occur. Please take the time to read the sections on crime prevention, safety programs, and crime statistics or contact us for more details.
