Welcome to the Del Mar College Campus Security and Safety website. This site was created to assist the Del Mar College community – students, faculty, staff, parents and visitors – with security and safety information while on campus or involved in school related events.

The Department of Campus Security & Safety is the administrative office for overseeing, advising and assisting the College in complying with local, state and federal regulations in the following areas:  security, environmental compliance, occupational safety, fire and life safety, public health, and ADA accessibility.

  • Report a Crime

    Submit Crime Information

    You should immediately report incidents to Campus Security. Officers will investigate the incident and assist you in contacting the Corpus Christi Police Department if needed.

    You should immediately report items missing from classrooms. In some cases, a missing item can be recovered. Immediately contact Security if you or someone you know is victimized on either campus.

    Campus Security provides a means for students to anonymously provide information about crimes on campus. Total anonymity is guaranteed. No personal information is collected with the crime information. Crimes reported through this program are reviewed and investigated by the officers and staff of the Security Department. All information submitted through this program is confidential.

  • Emergency Call Boxes

    Emergency and Assistance call boxes, mounted on light poles or in free-standing blue pedestals, may be used to request help during an emergency, to request personal escorts, or for any assistance or information needed.

    The call boxes are located on both the East and West Campuses, as well as the Del Mar College Annex.

    For current locations in these areas, please call (361) 698-1946 day or night. When using a call box, be prepared to state your name, location and the nature of your emergency for the best assistance.

  • Auto Services

    Security will provide a phone and phone numbers to auto services that will provide jump-starts for vehicles with dead batteries. We also locate missing vehicles in the parking lot and help physically disadvantaged students and faculty in and out of their vehicles.

     

  • After Hours Access

    Occasionally, staff or faculty members require access to offices after normal working hours or during weekends. Not all buildings are in use at these times. Individuals who need to work outside normal business hours must stop by the Security Office and fill out an "after hours" request.

    By filling out the request, Security knows who is working in each building and how long they expect to work. In the event of an emergency, Security can contact you if evacuation is needed.

    Unless students are with a faculty member, Security cannot permit any students admittance.

  • Lost Property

    Frequently, items found on either campus are turned in to the Student Activities Offices located in the Harvin Center and Coleman Center. Officers make every effort to locate owners of lost property and will leave word in the nearest building in which items were found.

  • Safety Issues

    Fire alarm or evacuations

    In the event of a fire alarm or evacuation, please take your personal items with you if possible. By doing so, you cut down opportunities for theft and ensure that you won't need to return to the building to retrieve items from an unsafe environment.

    Parking

    Our bike officers routinely perform checks on people who stay in their vehicles for periods of time. This procedure is conducted for safety purposes.

    Do not park in red fire zones because this blocks emergency vehicle access to certain buildings.

    We remind individuals to be considerate and not park on handicap spaces. These spaces are reserved for our physically disadvantaged students who need easy access to buildings.

Mission Statement

The mission of Campus Security and Safety is to work as an equal partner with students, faculty, staff and the local community to enhance public safety; ensure compliance with current regulations; and encourage personal awareness to establish a safe, healthy and secured environment.
