Campus Crime / Safety and Emergencies
In order to comply with the Jeanne Clery Act, all Title IV campuses are required to complete an annual security report so that students and/or the public can be informed of any crime statistics that occurred on campus or surrounding areas. This report is prepared by Riggins Urban Barber College personnel in cooperation with law enforcement agencies in those areas where the institution is located.
To Report A Crime
Please report all crimes/suspect of crimes to the owner, administrator or instructor of RUBC. For non-emergencies situations please call (619) 701-7032. For emergencies dial 911. Any suspicious activity or person seen loitering inside or around the institutions building should be reported. All reports will be investigated. Violations of the law will be referred to the San Diego Police Department.
Safety and Security Information
Our goal is to provide students, staff and guests with a safe environment in which to learn and to keep students, staff and the public informed about campus security. The Clery Act requires institutions of higher education to provide students, staff and the public with information they need to make informed decisions. The following policies and procedures are established to comply with the Clery Act.
In event that a situation arises, and it is established as an ongoing threat, a campus wide notification will be issued and the San Diego Police Department will be contacted if necessary. The notification will be issued through in-school announcements, through text message and any other means deemed appropriate by the owner and/or administrator. Anyone with information warranting a notification should report the circumstances in person to the owner, administrator or instructor of RUBC.

If you are a victim of sexual assault, stalking, domestic or dating violence at Riggins Urban Barber College your first priority should be to get to a place of safety. You should obtain medical treatment, if necessary. Riggins Urban Barber College strongly advocates that a victim reports the incident in a timely manner to a school official, such as the owner, administrator and/or staff member. Time is a critical factor for evidence collection and preservation. Reporting to school officials would not obligate the victim to prosecute, nor will it subject the
victim to scrutiny or judgmental opinions. Filing a police report will:
Ensure that a victim receives necessary medical treatment and tests,
Provide the opportunity for collection of evidence helpful in prosecution, which cannot be
obtained later, and
Assure the victim has access to confidential counseling from counselors specifically
trained in the area of sexual assault crisis intervention, stalking, domestic or dating
When a victim contacts a Riggins Urban Barber College official, the San Diego Police Department will be notified, unless the victim specifically requests the school not to; the school will require that the request be in writing. In cases where the accused is another student and/or staff member, the victim may choose for the investigation be pursued through the criminal justice system and the school’s disciplinary procedures, or only the latter. School officials will guide the victim through the available options and support the victim in his/her decision.
Where the accused is another student or staff member the school will provide a prompt, fair and impartial investigation, and resolution. The accuser and the accused are entitled to the same opportunities to have others present during the disciplinary proceeding. Both the accuser and the accused must be informed of the outcome of any institutional disciplinary proceedings in writing. The school will use the majority of the standard to the factual allegations. For the purpose of this paragraph, the outcome of a disciplinary proceeding means, only the institution’s final determination, with respect to the alleged offense and any sanction that is imposed against the accused. A student or staff member found guilty of sexual or any other misconduct may be terminated. Our institution is obligated to comply with student’s request for assistance with an academic, living, transportation and/or working situation change following an alleged sexual assault, if such change is reasonably available.
