Safety & Security Tips for Life on Campus

A message from Safety and Security:

Welcome back to campus! As we enter the first full week of the Fall Quarter, I wanted to take this opportunity to provide some tips from the Safety & Security Department.

Campus Security – We have a uniformed officer on campus and on duty 24/7/365. Our personnel are trained and equipped to respond to a vast variety of calls that include but are not limited to, medical emergencies, security emergencies, and calls for assistance.

To reach our team during business hours, call 206-546-4633, or visit the Safety & Security Office in the Foss Building, Room 5102.

After hours or if the office does not answer, the on-duty Campus Security Officer can be reached at 206-235-5860

Courtesy Services – Our department provides vehicle lockout assistance, vehicle jumpstarts, security escorts, and more!

Department Information – If you visit the Safety & Security website you can find additional resources and information readily at your fingertips.

  • The Annual Security and Fire Report
  • Campus Crime Log (Updated weekly)
  • Emergency Management Resources (including Active Shooter training videos)
  • Information regarding Parking Citation appeals, campus shuttle services, and more!

Tips – With the current state of regional crime trends, here are a few tips that can help you in having a wonderful experience here at Shoreline:

  • Catalytic Converter Engraving Event, open to all current Shoreline Community College students, faculty, and staff
    • Thursday, October 13th from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM; check in at the tent that will be located in the lower parking lot by Building 2000 (VCT/Art Building)
  • Park in high traffic and well-lit areas. Criminals don’t typically like having an audience while they work.
  • Remove all valuables from your vehicle and remove items from view.
    • Even if a bag only has dirty gym clothes in it, a prowler may break in hoping it contains valuables.
  • If you observe a suspicious person or vehicle on campus, call security.
  • Always keep your phone and photo ID on your person in the event that you need to contact assistance.
  • If you witness or observe concerning behavior or posts on social media, report it
  • If you ever have any questions, thoughts, or concerns, you can always talk to a Campus Security Officer, stop by the office, or send an email to
