Very Low Crime Rate at SCC

The crime rate at Solano Community College continues to be extremely low, according to the 2016 Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. In his introduction to the report, Lieutenant Brian Travis, Service Area Manager of the Solano County Sheriff’s Office, stressed the importance of maintaining a safe campus.

“Throughout 2016, Solano Community College continued to strive for academic excellence in education,” Travis wrote in his introduction to the report. “Safety remains an integral part in reaching our milestones in the first 71 years and continues to be an integral part of our continued success as we move forward.” SCC contracts with the Solano County Sheriff’s Office to provide law enforcement for its campuses.

The newest Clery report provides detailed crime statistics, as well as policies and procedures for handling various situations on campus. The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose certain timely and annual information about campus crime and security policies. All public and private post- secondary educational institutions participating in federal student aid programs are required to comply with it.
