Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

Although crime on the Fullerton College campus remained relatively low, an increase in the number of incidences led to the establishment of a public safety unit on campus in 1986. The first security force consisted of four officers with previous security experience, who rotated shifts from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Initially, public safety personnel were not allowed to wear uniforms due to the large number of complaints from students who felt intimidated by the black police-type uniforms. For years, the Public Safety Department worked out of a dingy trailer, shown here in 1999. The 55-foot trailer housed eight full-time and three part-time public safety employees.
