TMU Alert

TMU Alert is an emergency notification system that allows university officials to contact you during an emergency by sending messages via text message.

When an emergency occurs, authorized TMU officials will promptly notify you with instructions on where to go, what to do (or what not to do), whom to contact and other important information.

Students and employees may opt-in to TMU Alert by navigating to Self-Service / My Profile / Phone Numbers and adding or updating your primary cell phone number.

Welcome to The Master’s University!

The Department of Campus Safety provides the day to day safety and security services for the university. In addition to working full-time for the campus safety department, many of our employees are full time students taking classes here on campus or at the Seminary in Los Angeles, also led by our President, John MacArthur. All that to say, I want you to know that you are served by a group of officers who are not only concerned for your personal safety but genuinely have a servant’s heart for you to grow in Christ.

Campus Safety maintains a 24 hour presence on the university property, and the guard shack is located at the entrance to the residential housing area. You will frequently see officers on foot or vehicle patrols in and around the campus or within the guard shack. There is an administrative office located on the north academic campus that is open during general business hours, where you may also gain assistance.

The Master’s University is blessed to be located within a quiet, residential community, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department charts our geographical area within a low to negligible crime zone. It is not uncommon to see horses being ridden down the sides of the road from one of the many beautiful ranches, or neighbors buzzing past our campus on golf carts. There is even a historic movie studio located a ½ mile down Placerita Canyon Road called Melody Ranch where John Wayne films were made, and some Western movies are still filmed today. Please drive the side streets slowly and carefully. We work hard to maintain an excellent Christian testimony with the many homeowners that surround our campus property.

It is our joy to serve you and we hope to make your years at TMU as safe and secure as we possibly can. We have a motto in the campus safety department and hope that both you and your parents embrace it. It is based on Psalm 127:1, “Unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain.” We place our trust in the hands of our sovereign God, and look upon ourselves as one of many means He uses on this campus to bless and grow you, for His glory and your good.

Please click on the many links from our home page for important safety information related to our parking and general regulations, and more!

Again, on behalf of the entire safety team I want to personally welcome you as a student of The Master’s University!

The Campus Safety Department works in close partnership with the Los Angeles County Fire and Sheriff’s Department, who have stations within close proximity to the University. The Campus Safety Department plays one part in a larger Emergency Management Plan which the college incorporates to facilitate effective coordination of resources in any emergency. In the event of a life threatening emergency, cellular text messages to registered users will be distributed to communicate important instructions on how Faculty, Staff, and Students should respond.

Daily Crime and Fire Log

The Daily Crime & Fire Log includes a record of all crimes reported to campus safety that occurred anywhere within the department’s patrol jurisdiction and all fires reportedly occurring in the residence halls over the past 60 days. The log is designed to provide timelier details and greater information to the campus community than the annual statistical disclosures.

The most recent 60 days of the log is immediately available at the link below.

Daily Crime & Fire Log Stats

For the previous three years of crime statistics listed in the annual security report, please go here.

Archived (hard copy) portions of the log will be made available within two business days of a request for public inspection except for days when the institution is closed (holidays, scheduled breaks when no personnel are present). In accordance with the Clery Act regulations, records are retained for three years from the latest publication of the report to which they apply. For example, the 2015 annual security report contained statistics for 2012, 2013, 2014. The 2012 statistics and supporting daily crime logs would be kept until Oct. 1, 2018 - in effect seven years. To view archived copies of the daily crime log please stop by the North campus safety business office during weekday business hours and request to speak with the Director or Lieutenant. It may take up to two business days to meet your request. Note: If a log entry disposition changes after 60 days have passed the log may not reflect those changes.
