Personal Safety Guide on Campus – The Clipper
As EvCC moves to more in-person classes, personal safety goes beyond COVID-19 protocols. Any campus can be a victim of crime, and EvCC is no different. Information is one of the best defense tools for students.
Below is a collection of security and support methods for EvCC students:
These alerts occur in real time and notify students of campus closures or an emergency. They can
come as an SMS to your phone or an email to your personal account. All student email addresses are automatically enrolled in this program.

EvCC is not required to report certain crimes, such as sexual assault, in a Rave Alert. The most comprehensive and accurate way to see what type of crime has occurred and where it has occurred (what location on campus or in dormitories) within EvCC is with the Annual Report Cléry report. This can be found on the Safety and Security Campus page.
This report is required by all colleges and universities that receive federal funding to be released by October 1 and must include campus crime statistics for the previous three years. EvCC’s 2020 statistics start on page 51.
Students also have access to Campus crime blotter. It’s a monthly report of incidents on campus and in the dorms instead of waiting for Clery’s annual report.
Your tuition helps pay for many resources on campus, including the EvCC security office. Security guards can be the first point of contact for people on campus in distressing circumstances. Knowing where the office is and who the agents are can help create a more secure environment.
The opening hours of the security offices vary, but their hotline 425-388-9990 is open anytime, any day of the year, including holidays. During in-person security opening hours, they provide escort service to people from EvCC. This service extends to all satellite sites such as the Marysville School of Cosmetology.
Larea Sylvester, EvCC security officer and EvCC alumnus, who answered the phone on Remembrance Day at 9:28 pm, said: “Security is there 365, 24/7 , good weather, bad weather. They are available to provide escort to and from vehicles and buildings. This is for staff, students and visitors. They just need to call.
Students can report crimes, injuries or safety hazards in the office or here.

Blue light emergency phone
In the event of an emergency, throughout the main campus there are specialized telephones with a blue light on them. These are one-button loudspeaker stations that directly connect the user to the constantly monitored phone in the security office.
As COVID-19 restrictions ease and more students congregate on campus, it’s important to remember that personal safety goes beyond washing your hands and wearing a mask. It takes knowledge, awareness and unity within the EvCC community to protect all students from crime.
