What are my Options?

Reporting Incidents and Crimes

Working together, safety at Moorpark College is everyone’s business. No community, of course, can be totally risk free in today’s society. Students, faculty/staff and visitors are partners in creating an atmosphere that is safe and conducive for teaching and learning. Whether you are a victim or a witness, you have the responsibility to report crime. If a crime occurs on or around campus, report it immediately to the Moorpark College Police Department.

The Moorpark College Police Department is the primary agency for reporting and investigating all crimes that occur on Moorpark College Campuses. Any instances of criminal activity occurring on the Moorpark College Campus should be reported to the Moorpark Police Department.

You may contact the police department by calling 805.378.1455, or coming to the police department which is located next to the main parking structure on the lower campus.

Crimes in progress and crimes that have just occurred should be reported immediately. Whenever possible, the actual victim or witness of the crime should call directly. First-hand information is always more accurate and complete. If someone merely gives you the information and leaves, please include that persons information in your call to the police.

The Moorpark College PD Communication Center is staffed 24-hours a day by trained police dispatchers. The dispatchers constantly receive calls from the 9-1-1 and business lines. They assign the appropriate police officers, paramedics or emergency worker to handle the calls. When calling to report a crime or incident, please be ready to give information such as:

  • A brief description of the occurrence, 
  • When and where the incident occurred,
  • Weapons the suspect(s) carried,
  • Where and when the suspect(s) was last seen,
  • Description of the suspect(s) (including gender, race, age, height, weight, hair color/length, clothing, facial hair, tattoos/scars) and any other relevant information.
  • In addition to the importance of reporting, timely information assists in developing information and warnings for the campus.

When a crime is reported to the Moorpark College Police Department, a police officer will take a report outlining the circumstances of the incident, as well as any other pertinent information. The officer receiving the report is also responsible for following through on the case until conclusion.

In all instances of criminal activity, the police department works to determine the exact nature and perpetrator(s) of the crime for the purpose of developing a viable criminal case to be forwarded to the District Attorney’s or City Attorney's Office for prosecution.

In all cases where a student is considered a suspect, the police department will also forward the case information to the Title IX Coordinator for review and action as a possible violation of the Rules for Student Conduct.
