This Thursday April 28th, please join us from 11-2pm on: “Peace over Violence” – the Sexual Assault & Awareness Event occurring in the pond/bridge area. This is an important opportunity to raise awareness and start conversations about sexual assault, domestic violence, date rape, bystander intervention and stalking.

The “Clothesline Project” will be featured and is a means of allowing students to show support and share their stories on a T-shirt- that is pinned on a clothesline and draped around the pond area. The colors represent different types of abuse and it is a powerful presentation. This project is presented by CSP-Community Service Programs who provide free victims assistance.

The other community agencies who will be tabling at the event provide amazing support and services to our students/staff. The other agencies attending will be: OC Behavioral Health Services, Didi Hirsch, Action Consultants, and WTLC/Women’s Transitional Living Center. 

Please share this information with students and staff- the agencies love to talk with our campus community members!

Hope to see you there…

Cypress P.D. Hold SWAT Exercise on Campus Today

2016-01-SWAT-Drill

As part of Cypress College’s ongoing partnership with the Cypress Police Department, the agency will conduct a SWAT exercise on campus today (January 21, 2016). The training provides opportunity for the officers to familiarize themselves with the College’s buildings. In turn, this facilitates a more-informed response to any incident members of the law enforcement agency attend to on the campus.

The drill will include approximately 100 uniformed officers and will be centered on the north side of campus  and will include the Humanities, which will be completely closed and under the Cypress Police Department’s control. Employees who work in the building have been relocated to the Fine Arts Building for the day. This includes staff of the division offices.

The drill will commence with an 11 a.m. orientation for participants in the drill, including some college employees who have volunteered for assignments.

Members of the campus community, and perhaps the immediate surrounding area, may hear noise simulating either gun fire or explosive devices. Police will use use blanks and diversionary devices, but no live ammunition will be used in the exercise.
