COVID-19 Campus Update

As public health concerns surrounding COVID-19 continue to grow, Community College of Philadelphia has made the careful decision to move coursework to online or other remote alternatives, beginning March 30 through the end of the spring semester, and to keep Main Campus and its Regional Centers closed through at least May 6, 2020. All courses remain suspended through March 30, 2020. Students will receive details on coursework from individual instructors. Faculty and staff will be issued guidance by supervisors. At this time, the commencement ceremony for spring 2020 is postponed. The College will continue to update you via email, web updates and text alerts as this situation evolves during the closure. During this time, please follow all CDC guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus and remaining healthy, including hygiene recommendations, social distancing practices and remaining home when you are sick.

Report a Crime or Suspicious Activity

Knowing how to react during an emergency can save your life. Simple and decisive actions taken in response to an evolving emergency can mean the difference between death or serious injury and staying safe.

How To Report a Crime or Suspicious Activity

Security is a collaborative effort that concerns everyone. The Office of Safety and Security depends on the College community to let us know when you observe a security problem, or a situation that may be unsafe. If You See Something, Say Something!

To report a campus emergency:

  • Dial 911 for the Police or Fire Departments
  • Call College Safety and Security: Dial 5555 from a campus phone or 215-751-8111 from a non-campus phone
  • Use the Online Reporting System

For non-emergencies, the Security Office has a suggestion box where you can leave your comments, feedback and ideas about how we may be of better service to the College Community. 

Online Reporting System

You can now report suspicious activity to the Safety and Security office using the Online Reporting System

This reporting form is for individuals who have information about an individual, safety issue, potential crime, or incident and wish to report it anonymously. Information obtained from submissions will be kept confidential, but may be shared on a need-to-know basis if the information would be beneficial to another College department. Depending on the nature the information, College policies and protocols or legal constraints may preclude an immediate response from the Department of Campus Safety and Security.

Silent Witness

Our Silent Witness program allows for the anonymous submission of suspected criminal activity that occurs on campus. Submitted information will be reviewed by our investigative staff, and appropriate action will be taken as warranted.

If this is a life-threatening emergency, please call 911 to reach the Philadelphia Police Department or the Fire Department, and then notify Campus Safety at 215-751-8111. If you need an immediate response from the Department of Campus Safety and Security to a non-emergency incident or situation, please call 215-751-8111.
