The  Campus Safety Office is located in Building T (adjacent to soccer field) at Main Campus, 411 Central Avenue, Salinas.  The Campus Safety Office is operational 24 hours a day, year-round, and exists to provide safety and security for students, staff, faculty, and visitors. Its responsibilities govern District property. Staff members have no police powers. Safety officers are responsible for a full range of public safety services, including all crime reports and enforcement of District safety regulations. They have a mobile telephone-radio system, which provides them with the capability of summoning a police officer if one is required.

The Campus Safety Office works closely with the Salinas Police Department. The Salinas Police Department responds to the campus when immediate support is needed since the campus is within the City of Salinas. The Salinas Police Department generously provides assistance upon request to include patrol responses, canines, crowd control at major events, and other law enforcement needs.

Annual Campus Safety and Security Report

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security and Campus Crime Statistics Act, also known as the Campus Safety and Security Report, is provided in compliance with the Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990. The report informs the campus community about important procedures, policies, crime prevention programs, and campus crime statistics. The report can be accessed at the Hartnell Campus Safety and Security webpage. Hard copies of the report may also be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Records. Prospective employees and students are afforded the same information at the time they obtain an application for employment or admission. Any person may have access to the report.

Compilation of information for the report as well as criminal statistical data as required by the Act is accomplished through cooperative efforts with Student Affairs, Human Resources, Deans, the Athletic Director, team coaches, and advisors to student organizations.
