Columbia College Campus Safety believes the community has the right to know about criminal incidents on campus. We believe that by reviewing the statistics, you can make an educated decision about choices to stay safe. We encourage members of the campus community to be active in crime prevention through education, by asking questions and reporting crime when it occurs.
