Reporting Emergencies, Crimes, Suspicious Activities or Safety Hazards

For emergencies, dial 911 from any phone.

All members of our campus community are expected to share responsibility in reporting emergencies, crimes, suspicious activities, and safety hazards to keep our campus safe for all.

All emergencies will be investigated immediately by Campus Safety staff, including medical emergencies, accidents, or catastrophes.

Crimes against persons and violent crimes will be investigated on campus by the assigned campus police officer of the Hayward Police Department or a police officer summoned by a campus safety officer. A campus safety officer will investigate crimes against property unless the incident involves a substantial loss or theft of a motor vehicle.

Suspicious activities and safety hazards will be investigated promptly by the on-duty campus safety officer who will delegate the appropriate resources to resolve the incident. Interagency coordination and responsibilities are written pursuant to California Education Code section 67381.

  • When the alarm sounds, DO NOT PANIC. Leave by the nearest exit or stairway.
  • All persons will evacuate to at least 150 feet from the buildings.
  • Special precautions must be taken to ensure that persons who have impaired hearing are notified and persons with disabilities are assisted as appropriate.

II.    Earthquake

Special precautions must be taken to ensure that persons who have impaired hearing are notified and persons with disabilities are assisted as appropriate.

IIII. Shooting/ Sniper/Violent Armed Individual

During incidents or situations where a subject is armed with a deadly weapon other than a firearm or suspected explosive device, such as a knife, ax, or club, and is threatening or attacking others, the following actions should be taken:   

  • The type of shooting incident/situation will determine the appropriate response.
  • If you are outdoors, immediately seek cover and move away from the line of fire.
  • If you are indoors, immediately get down, move away from all windows and if possible, block or secure the room door to prevent the suspect(s) from entering.
  • Do not evacuate rooms or the building until instructed to do so by a Safety and Security officer, the Building Monitor, or an Chabot College employee with proper identification or a Hayward Police Officer or unless it is absolutely clear that it is safe to do so.
  • Special precautions must be taken to ensure that persons who have impaired hearing are notified and persons with disabilities are assisted as appropriate.
  • Call 911 from any phone. Do not hang up on the dispatcher until instructed to do so. The following information should be provided:

  • Sniper/Barricaded Suspect(s)
    • Remain in place of shelter or safety until instructed to evacuate or leave
