On July 15, 2002, the Oakland Community College Board of Trustees authorized the College to form a police department.  They also formed a Public Safety Advisory Committee.  The Public Safety Advisory Committee shall receive and address grievances by persons against College Police Officers or the College Police Department and may recommend to the Director of Public Safety that disciplinary measures be taken against a Police Officer who is found responsible for misconduct in office.  To file a complaint, please use the Citizen Complaint Form.

Students do not need permits to park in student parking lots or in the parking structures. There is no charge for parking. Parking outside of a designated parking space will result in a ticket. Please check the campus maps for the location of student parking lots and structures as well as information and helpful tips. Students are not permitted in staff and faculty lots. The first two weeks of classes are very busy. Arrive early for your class, especially night classes. Park in designated spaces only, avoid parking in fire lanes, or on yellow diagonal lines. Handicap parking areas require a state permit obtained from the Secretary of States office.

To take care of a ticket, follow the instructions on the ticket.
