"Have only had system for 2 weeks. Easy to use and effective. Only problem is when in "Away" mode the motion sensor picked up our 13 pound cat jumping up on a desk close by...THREE times! Needs sensitivity adjustment. Police, however, did come each time, so it does indeed work. Not sure why I needed a motion sensor if none of the door/window connections were broken?"

College in California: Which Campuses Are Safest?
Before your high school junior or senior leaves the nest for good—or before you go back to school yourself—you might benefit from researching the safety of your favorite schools. You could even reverse-engineer a decision based on the safest college campuses in California (listed below) or other nationwide winners in our annual report.*
*We have updated our methodology since publishing 2018’s Safest College Campuses by State, so you may see slightly different results for California there. Both can be helpful in deciding where to attend college.
- Thirteen of the 58 California colleges and universities we ranked had zero reports of hate crime or violence against women (also known as VAWA).
- Brandman University focuses on accessible education and offers mostly online coursework. Among other factors, lower foot traffic could contribute to the school’s low counts of campus crime.
- While Shasta College has the highest rate of VAWA and hate crimes among the 58 colleges we ranked, the school has many programs in place to help students stay safe.
- Foothill College ranks about average for safety (25th in the list of 58), but its hometown of Los Altos Hills has the lowest violent and property crime rates of all the college towns in the rankings
First we gathered numbers on hate crimes per enrolled students and VAWA per enrolled students per the U.S. Department of Education’s Campus Safety and Security reports. Then we gathered stats on the violent crime and property crime rates in each college’s hometown per the FBI Uniform Crime Report, since many students live and work off campus.
We then scored and ranked each campus on a weighted scale, with hate crimes and VAWA making up 80% of the campus safety score and citywide crimes supplementing the score at 20% (violent crime 15%, property crime 5%). Campus crimes were weighted more heavily to reflect the safety of the institutions represented on the list.
To be included in our rankings, California colleges had to have two- or four-year degrees available, a total enrollment of at least 5,000 students, and sufficient campus and city crime data from the Department of Education and the FBI. A total of 58 California colleges met our criteria.
