4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Police officials are always there when you need them and so are health staff members.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: It's clear that they're available to help but I've never asked for it. Also the most I see them is when they are checking permits on parked cars.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I mean, security is on campus, just not EVERYWHERE

4 College Student

Health & Safety: Downtown Pomona is not the best place to be in, so I wouldn't be off campus by myself at the late hours, but on campus I am totally comfortable walking by myself even after midnight.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They are not very visible to the campus that even some students do not believe they exist. It would be best to see more security personal around the parking lots especially at night.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Let’s be honest: Pomona is not a very safe city. Pomona is known to have a high crime rate and more than a few seedy areas. However, Cal Poly Pomona in itself is a very safe area. Within the confines of CPP property, University Police patrol constantly for any criminal or suspicious activity. Their station is located on campus next to the parking structure, and all of their reports are put into the “Police Blotter” in the Poly Post. Definitely read this section; along with being informative, a lot of times it’s entertaining to read about the crazy calls they get! There are tall blue poles prominently displayed throughout the parking lots, which are emergency phone stations. The Bronco Express shuttle runs all around campus, the parking lots, and the Village. Also, CPP has an escort service at night that can drive you to your car if you don’t feel safe.

If you decide to venture outside of CPP grounds for a party (and let’s face it, you will), just be smart about it. The fraternity houses are smack dab in the middle of Pomona, so make sure when you go to parties you bring a friend to walk to and from your car with. When you get to your car, lock your doors. Just play it smart and you can have a fun and safe time in Pomona.
