No matter the time of day, the Yavapai College Police Department is here to serve the campus community. If you find yourself in need of a jumpstart or other vehicle assistance, we can help.
When under the influence, you are more likely to take risks and make unwise choices. Your inhibitions are lowered and your judgment is impaired. The majority of safety related incidences occur when someone involved is under the influence. We are committed to making sure you have the information you need to make good, informed choices about alcohol.
We start by educating you to make sure you are aware of the risks and consequences of illegal and irresponsible alcohol use. We share sobering statistics from college campuses nationwide and help you understand the effects of excessive drinking.
Through our campus wide publicity efforts, you'll be reminded of the dangers of drinking, and you'll also find out about a wide variety of fun, alcohol-free activities and events and alcohol-education programs.
Visit the College Police Department and register your bicycle for free. Bicycles will be registered through the National Bike Registry for 10 years. In the event a bicycle is stolen, important information such as serial number and a complete description of your bicycle will be on file. Come by the College Police Department on the Prescott or Verde Valley Campus for this free service.
Crime Prevention Training
Members of the Police Department are available to talk to any student or employee group on any of our campuses. These talks are designed to educate members of the campus communities about security and safety issues, and various techniques that can be used to prevent crime on campus.
Some topics include: sexual assault awareness and prevention, sexual harassment, theft and identity theft prevention, alcohol/DUI awareness, domestic violence, and general safety.
