It is the goal of the college district police investigation office to investigate any crime or mishap that occurs on the West Valley-Mission College District property; and to report its findings to the College District Police Chief, the College District Chancellor's Office and if applicable, to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office for possible criminal prosecution.

What We Investigate:
The West Valley-Mission College District Police is the primary law enforcement agency for the properties controlled by the West Valley-Mission Community College District. The Investigations office assists officers of the District Police with on-going criminal investigations, collects and processes evidence and works as a liaison between the College District Police and the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office.  The District Police also maintains working relationships with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.  Questions concerning an open investigation can be directed to our Investigations office, 1-408-741-2068.

Memorandum of Understanding (MOU):
We maintain two written MOU's (Memorandums of Understanding) with the Santa Clara County Office of the Sheriff  and the City of Santa Clara Police Department outlining our Part-1 Crime Offenses, investigative responsibilities, and hours of operations.
