Interim Chief Scott KennedyChief’s Message

Welcome to the Irvine Valley College Police Department (IVCPD).

IVCPD is a full-service law enforcement agency staffed by sworn peace officers and communications dispatchers who have been trained and certified in accordance with the standards established by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.). Campus Police officers have the same authority as municipal and county law enforcement officers, including the powers of arrest.

IVCPD is dedicated to serving the Irvine Valley College community. The department provides police services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are responsible for patrolling campus grounds and facilities, taking crime and incident reports, conducting criminal investigations, enforcing traffic and parking regulations, and providing a safe environment for our students, faculty, staff and guests.

We have a modern communications center equipped with state-of-the-art telephone and radio communications equipment. Our dispatchers have the ability to receive and dispatch service calls, and to communicate with other public safety agencies throughout the county, including the Orange County Fire Authority.

We place a high priority on service to the campus community, and this includes being involved in campus activities, outreach efforts, and emergency drills / education.  You are our eyes and ears at IVC, and we want to partner with you to keep our campus one of the safest in the nation.   

If you are the victim of a crime, observe suspicious activity, or need to report an emergency at IVC, day or night, call Campus Police at 949-451-5234. If you are calling from a campus office or classroom phone, dial extension 5234. Reports may also be made at the Campus Police station at the west end of Lot 8, near the baseball field.
