Welcome to the MCLA Department of Public Safety - Campus Police website. The purpose and design of this site is to provide college community members and guests of the institution with easy access to general information about the Campus Police Department, the educational programs and services it offers, and our role and responsibility in helping maintain an environment that is safe and conducive to learning and living. I invite you to please take a few minutes to view the information in our site.
The Department of Public Safety - Campus Police is a progressive department staffed with dedicated men and women committed to serving the MCLA educational community with pride and professionalism. Our "Core Values" program promotes "LEADERSHIP by example" by instilling in each and every Campus Police Officer and employee, the desire to protect, serve, and exemplify these character traits as a community standard for all to follow:
It is our belief in, and commitment to, adhering to these core values that allow us to form close partnerships with all of our community members. It is a bond based on community confidence and trust in our department's ability to be responsive in all times of need. We encourage you to call on us in your time of need!
