SECURITY ALERT

ALERT: Weapon on Campus

Yesterday (August 31, 2017), we received 3 calls from students regarding an individual with a knife in a holster attached to his belt walking on campus. The subject was located on campus by security.  Monterey Police was contacted and the individual was escorted off campus and advised that weapons of any kind are not allowed on campus.  While escorted off campus, the individual became irate and noncompliant. 

At 2:20 pm the subject was taken into custody by Monterey police.

THE FOLLOWING STANDARDS APPLY TO ALL ON CAMPUS

Board Policy 3530 Weapons on Campus

 Firearms or other weapons shall be prohibited on any college or District center or in any facility of the District except for activities conducted under the direction of District officials or as authorized by an official law enforcement agency.
