Welcome to Rio Hondo College’s Public Safety Division. The Division of Public Safety offers students the opportunity to learn, obtain, train, and apply traits that will allow them to seek employment in different areas of the public sector. Employment can range in many areas of our government as well as the private sector, but all have the same interest in mind, to make sure our neighborhoods are safe places to live, work, and play.
The Administration of Justice Annex is located on the lower level parking structure 2A of Rio Hondo’s Main Campus Grounds. Here, the Annex houses multiple classrooms for learning as well as a spacious hall for gym, strength training, and learning defense and control tactics. Outside the Annex, cadets will master drill guides and exercise hands on skills learned in class. A memorial stands at the entrance of The Annex in memory of our fallen soldiers.
