SAFETY TOWN HALL & SURVEY:

I would like to extend my thanks to everyone that participated in the survey for campus safety. The responses related to this subject are very useful. I have already implemented some changes in response to some of your concerns. My Captain and I will be hosting a Town Hall meeting on May 20th 2015 @ 5pm in the Student Services Building, Room 414. If your schedule permits, please attend to voice your concerns and help us improve and enhance the effectiveness of campus safety as it relates to our West LA College community. Also, if you haven't had the chance to complete the survey, it is still available to do so. Place the following link in your internet browser: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CCSWLAC
