CCD Campus Safety

AHEC Campus Police

Community College of Denver (CCD) strives to provide a safe and healthy environment that improves your learning process. Each student and employee should be able to attend classes, work on campus, and/or participate in activities with a feeling that they are in a safe and secure environment. The Auraria Campus Police are full-time, fully certified Colorado peace officers, dispatchers, and security officers. In addition to patrolling the campus regularly each day and night, they have put into place helpful procedures for campus-wide safety.

RAVE Emergency Notification System - During an emergency or to notify our community of weather closures, the Auraria Campus utilizes this text, email, and voice messaging system to deliver important information. All CCD students, faculty, and staff who provide a cell phone number during registration or to HR will automatically be entered into the RAVE (Emergency Alerts) system. You can opt out of getting emergency notifications by visiting the website and following directions. But we highly recommend you remain on the RAVE phone list!
