Message from the Chief of Police

On behalf of the men and women of the Solano Community College Police Department, I want to welcome you to our Campus and our webpage. Our team of dedicated employees is committed to providing students, faculty, and staff with one of the safest college campuses in our state. We accomplish this by seeking out and implementing collaborative and innovative cost-conscious strategies in our prevention, intervention, and enforcement efforts. We are a proud organization of compassionate and hard-working individuals, devoted to the public service core principles of:
  • Fidelity to Public Trust
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Fairness
  • Humility
  • Respect for Individual Human Dignity
In our effort to keep our crime low, the Campus Police Department has embraced a balanced approach to public safety. As a forward-looking police agency, we know that crime and the fear of crime can best be reduced when a well-rounded approach of prevention, intervention, and enforcement strategies is employed. Our core mission is:

"We will work in collaboration with our community to provide police services, safety measures, and a police presence that will reduce both campus crime and the associated fear of becoming a victim while promoting a safe educational environment."

We also have an obligation to inform and educate the community we serve so that individuals can take steps to promote personal safety and lessen the likelihood of becoming a crime victim. In part, towards this end, we hope you find our website informational and user-friendly. Please feel free to contact us with your comments or questions.

In closing, rest assured that we are committed to meeting and maintaining the highest standards of police professionalism, and we understand the value of providing a superior level of customer service to the students, faculty, and staff of this remarkable educational institution.
