WesternU / Campus Security

Campus Security

The Mission of WesternU’s Campus Security is to provide a safe, secure, and inviting environment for all students, employees, and visitors within the University Community.

About Campus Security

Our Campus Security Officers are currently contracted through Imperial Security. Our officers are non-sworn, civilian employees that have taken the appropriate private person powers of arrest courses. The Director of Campus Security serves as a direct liaison with the Pomona Police Department and meetings occur on a regular basis to discuss problems of mutual concern.

Campus Security provides a high profile presence using a variety of patrolling techniques including vehicle, foot, and bicycle patrol. Security personnel is responsible for patrolling the main campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays. Campus Security maintains a rapid response capability to manage most security matters and receives assistance from the Pomona Police Department involving criminal incidents.

Campus Security works closely with Environmental Health & Safety.

    In the event of a potential emergency or dangerous situation that poses an immediate threat to the health or safety of some or all members of the WesternU community, the Office of Campus Security and/or Public Affairs & Marketing will immediately notify the campus community of the situation. Campus Security and Public Affairs & Marketing will create the content of the notification and will initiate the notification system, unless issuing a notification will, in the judgment of first responders (police, fire) compromise the efforts to assist a victim or mitigate the emergency.
