ServicesCrime Prevention & Campus Patrol

The Campus Public Safety Department is responsible for safety and security on all COCC-owned property. Public Safety Officers patrol the over 300 acres of COCC property, in order to deter and detect crime, and enforce campus policy. Our Bend Police Campus Resource Officer also patrols the COCC Bend Campus and its surrounding area.

Medical Response

Public Safety Officers have Healthcare Provider: Basic Life Support certifications from the American Heart Association. Every patrol vehicle contains an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), and all officers carry a tourniquet, gauze, medical shears, a chest seal, and a pressure dressing. Additionally, select officers carry Narcan and have advanced trauma care training.

Crisis Intervention

Some Public Safety Officers are members of the Oregon Crisis Intervention Team (CIT). Team members have received extensive training in crisis intervention, including a 40 hour CIT course. This training is in conjunction with the Bend Police Department and the Deschutes County Behavioral Health Team. CIT officers can be identified by the special Oregon "CIT" pins they wear on their uniforms.

Public Safety Officers have special tools and training to handle vegetation and structure fires. The Campus Public Safety Department works closely with our local fire agencies to both respond to, and prevent, fires on COCC property.
