Public Safety Assessment

SLO Assessment Process

Public Safety follows the CCSF assessment process as documented on the Outcomes Assessment Reporting website. Additional unit-specific processes described below.

Public Safety Assessment Processes:

Public Safety routinely evaluates its Program Outcomes through two evaluation measures. First, in preparation for the Annual Security Report, due each October 1st, Public Safety professionals review community crime statistics and security reports in order to make needed adjustments to the campus crime prevention strategy. At this time, any new laws governing college campuses are discussed and implemented. Second, every June/July Employee Leave records are evaluated so that campus police services are staffed and trained at appropriate levels, ensuring the prompt identification of safety threats, prompt and effective response to requests and inquiries, and a feeling of confidence about the public safety on CCSF campuses. 


Department Mission:

The Public Safety Department provides law enforcement and security at CCSF District facilities. These services include providing both personal safety as well as the protection of district property.  Also, the department oversees certain areas of the parking and alarm services. The Public Safety Department is also the lead coordinators of the Emergency Services program.


These service areas are on a regular cycle of review, during which outcomes are updated and revised.
