Diablo Valley College and the Contra Costa Community College District are committed to maintaining a safe environment at our campus sites. While not all circumstances are preventable, we are continually working to ensure that protocols and procedures are in place to respond to emergencies as expediently as possible: protecting the safety of our employees, students, and visitors remains among the highest of priorities for our College and District.
You can now use the new classroom notification devices from any classroom on the Pleasant Hill campus to connect with Police Services about any threat, emergency (including medical) or assistance you may require in the classroom or other public areas. These devices are available in classrooms and public meeting areas where phones are not present. (Classrooms on the San Ramon campus have telephones.) Please be sure to use this device even if 911 is called. Police Services can then direct the 911 responders to the exact location where the emergency is occurring.
To operate the notification device:
Student police aides and/or police officers are available to escort students to and
from their classrooms on the DVC campuses. Call police services to arrange for an
escort to meet on campus. This service is available on a first-call, first-served
basis to all students and staff.
Pleasant Hill: 925-969-2785 San Ramon: 925-551-6212

Classroom door locks throughout the college are being replaced soon with new door locks that can be locked from the inside. A “thumb-turn” will be added to doors with mechanical crash bars so that they can be locked from the inside as well.
The campus committee consists of a group of committed professionals who are working on revitalizing the college wide safety efforts through various campus safety initiatives. Through this group, the campus will have the opportunity to engage in at least one safety training opportunity each term, and will be invited to attend campus forums (on both campuses) to share safety concerns and hear about future initiatives.
Thank you for working together to keep DVC safe.
