Safety and Security

Biola University's security policies and procedures are aimed at safety and welfare. Help maintain safety by following all security policies and by using common sense safety practices. It is the responsibility of each Biola community member to refrain from criminal activities and any other form of behavior that might endanger the safety and welfare of any community member.

The Department of Campus Safety has the responsibility and authority to administer safety and law enforcement policy for the institution. This function is defined in part as the supervision of all activities that lead to the prevention, apprehension, and investigation of crimes and criminal activity on University property. Campus Safety enforces a variety of criminal statutes originating from the federal, state, and municipal levels of government, and is also responsible for enforcing several areas of student behavior under the university code of conduct. Campus Safety may impose selected administrative fines in addition to criminal prosecution or academic discipline imposed by the Division of Student Development. Additional information about safety and security policies is available in the online Annual Security and Fire Safety Report or on the Campus Safety website.
