Report to the Community

It is an unfortunate fact that criminal incidents of all types occur on college campuses. Most colleges around the country investigate and make public the nature and frequency of crimes. Biola University follows this practice and believes that reporting this information to the public increases community awareness about taking steps to prevent criminal activity.

Biola encourages victims of crimes to report incidents to the Department of Campus Safety regardless of how insignificant the crime may appear. To report a crime, a victim or witness should call (562) 903-6000 or dial "0" on any campus phone. College administrators receive reports about crime on a regular basis. Campus Safety Offices will also assist victims who want to report crimes to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The Department of Campus Safety has taken several steps to prevent crime. Some of these efforts include:

  • Extensive Surveillance System
  • 24-hour patrol
  • Officers dispatched by radio
  • Alarms in key areas
  • Card key entry systems in areas
  • On campus escort service
  • Gatehouse at Main Entrance and La Mirada Blvd. Entrance

Biola University places a high priority on your personal safety. The information on this website is provided to assist the University's commitment to safety and security in the campus community.
