The Department of Security maintains a communications office, open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, located in the basement of the Medical Center in room B-404. The general office and administrative section of the department is located on the campus at 24690 University Avenue (on the Northwest corner of Campus and University), and is open Monday through Thursday between 0730 and 1800 hours, and on Friday between 0730 and 1400 hours.
The Department of Security patrols all LLUAHSC property. Patrols are conducted by officers in uniform in marked patrol units and from time-to-time by officers on foot. The patrols are supplemented by closed-circuit television cameras strategically located throughout the Medical Center and in some campus areas. Patrols of the facilities are conducted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Department of Security currently maintains both security officers and K-9 teams to assist with many service functions of the department, as well as the prevention of crime through patrols and preventive techniques. They also enforce laws and make arrests when a situation calls for such action.
Additional Services Provided:
The Security Department is available to assist you with such problems as: vehicle jump-starts, keys locked in the car, and lost cars. When possible, lift the hood and stand by your vehicle. Security personnel will respond and assist you as soon as possible.

Escort service is available during dark hours, seven days a week for all female members of the Medical Center/University community. If you need an escort, call the Security Department and give your name, location, and destination. A security officer will be glad to meet you and walk or drive you to your car or other campus destination. Due to the officer's varying responsibilities, a wait may be necessary before an officer arrives for your escort.

They also issue keys for all buildings except LLUMC and LLUCH. Medical Center and Children's Hospital keys can be obtained from the Security Control Center. Keys are only issued to authorized persons with proper identification after receiving a completed key request form.
Automobile Accident Reports
If you or someone you know is involved in an automobile accident on campus, call the Security Department immediately. The Department of Security will take an accident report which may be used for insurance purposes. The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department will not take an accident report on Medical Center/University property unless there are injuries involved.
If there are injuries involved, the department of security will contact the appropriate rescue and Emergency Medical Support (EMS) agency. You can contact the department of security via any of the campus emergency phones or on any campus phone located throughout campus. Indicate the parking lot you are in, whether there are any injuries, and the make and color of the vehicles involved.
Personal Injury Reports
If you or someone you know is ill or injured on LLUAHSC University or Medical Center property, contact the department of security via any of the campus emergency phones or any campus phone. An officer will be dispatched and the appropriate Emergency Medical Support (EMS) personnel contacted for assistance, if needed.
Parking Permits and Identification Cards
The Department of Parking and Transportation registers vehicles for faculty, staff, and students of Loma Linda University and Medical Center. Vehicles can be registered during normal business hours at the Parking and Transportation office located at 101 E. Redlands Blvd., San Bernardino, Ca. Registration is also available on line. A copy of the University / Medical Center Parking Rules and Regulations can be found on the Transportation, Parking, and Traffic website.
All employees and medical staff are required by policy I-24 to wear their identification cards on them at all times while on Medical Center property.
The Department of Parking and Transportation issues parking violations to vehicles parked in violation of Loma Linda University Adventist Health Science Center's (LLUAHSC) parking rules and regulations. Parking enforcement is continuous for violators of handicapped, fire zones, visitor parking, permit parking, and prohibited parking areas.
Once a parking violation is issued, the violation is kept on record as being FINED until the following:
- The citation is paid.
- The citation was appealed and a warning has been issued as a result of the appeal.
- An individual had 3 or more unpaid parking citations, the vehicle was booted, the fines were paid in full, and the boot was removed.
During any one year period, the accumulation of more than three parking violations may result in the application of a "parking boot" which would preclude the vehicle from being moved without paying for the citations and the "boot" fee.
Parking in the Patient/Visitor parking lots of LLUAHSC, lots A and A-annex, by any "on duty" staff, employee or student may result in the issuance of a citation and/or the application of a "parking boot".
Emergency Phones on Campus
Emergency phones are identified by either a red, yellow or gray emergency call box. To contact the department of security with one of these phones, all you have to do is to pick up the receiver. When an emergency phone is activated, the department of security dispatcher will be alerted and an officer is sent to the location of the phone. No dialing or conversation is required. If possible, however, try to describe the emergency to the dispatcher.
In 1995, the Medical Center installed a number of new emergency phones. They are on distinctly marked bright red poles and will be easily located and identifiable at night by use of a blue light at the top of the pole. To use one of these emergency phones push the red button on the call box.
