At Allan Hancock College, student success is our highest priority. As such, the Allan Hancock College police department is dedicated to providing a safe environment where learning can take place.

Throughout the district our police officers, support staff, and student parking control workers, are committed to maintaining an attitude of collegiality and school spirit.

We are a community-oriented policing organization that strives to maintain working partnerships with the diverse community groups that we protect and serve.

Members of our department value professionalism, focus on teamwork, exude pride in their daily endeavors, encourage one another in vision, acknowledge accountability to the college community, and expect to enjoy their working environment.

On behalf of the department, I invite you to browse our site and take advantage of the public safety information contained herein. I also encourage you to visit our department and greet our officers in the field. They are happy to work hand in hand with members of the community simply because it is the way we do business.

"Starting at Allan Hancock College I encountered several obstacles; one of them was the language barrier. My writing skill was terrible; but AHC gave me an opportunity to improve my English skills. My dream from the beginning was to transfer to a university. At AHC, I had a great experience with my instructors and the people I worked with. They were inspirational; they motivated me to never give-up but persevere in my education journey."
