CCA's Public Safety Office oversees safety and security issues at CCA's San Francisco and Oakland campuses as well as the residence halls. Additional services and policies for the students collegewide are described in detail in the official CCA Student Handbook, which covers such additional topics as:
• the college's escort program
• identification card processing
• lost and found
• emergency response
• incidents involving injuries or criminal activities (e.g., theft, assault, public drunkenness)
CCA's Public Safety Office offers the following services and programs:
Photo ID Requirement
All students must wear a current CCA photo identification card at all times when on campus. A current CCA photo ID card is required to enter the San Francisco campus.
All student ID issues (including updating stickers) are handled Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Public Safety offices on either campus.
The first photo ID card is free to new students; replacement cards cost $10. Chains and lanyards for photo ID cards can be obtained at both Public Safety offices.
Students must obtain a sticker to validate their photo ID card for each semester of enrollment. Validation stickers can be obtained at the Public Safety desk in Hooper Graduate Building on the SF campus with proof of current enrollment and a completed student ID acknowledgment form.
