A Message from the Chief of Police

The VCCCD Police Department strives to promote a safe campus environment conducive to acade­mic achievement, through cooperation of students, faculty, and staff. With your help in reporting suspicious activity, crime, or incidents, I am confident we can achieve this goal. We encourage the prompt reporting of any incident that threatens the safety, health or rights of the campus college community.

The information contained in this report is made available to you in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, re­ferred to as the Clery Act. This act requires that all Title IV institutions prepare, publish, and distribute an annual security report that discloses security policies and contains three years of crime statistics for incidents occurring on-campus, on public property immediately adjacent to the campuses, and on non-campus properties owned or controlled by the institutions. Below is a directly link to the Ventura County Community College District's current Annual Security Report.

Each VCCCD Police Station is open from 7 A.M. to 10 P.M., Monday through Thursday, and from 7 A.M. to 5 P.M. on Fridays. The VCCCD Police Department can be reached at the following numbers:

  • Moorpark College Police Supervisor: Lt. Andrew Huisenga - (805) 378-1455
  • Oxnard College Police Supervisor: Lt. Cesar Romero - (805) 678-5805
  • Ventura College Police Supervisor: Lt. Mike Pallotto - (805) 289-6486

On behalf of the District, our colleges, and our officers, thank you for helping to make our campuses a safe place to learn and work. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact my office at (805) 652-7752.

— Michael Pallotto, Interim Chief of Police
