DHR Options

If you have been subjected to Discrimination, Harassment and or Retaliation (DHR), LACCD strongly encourages you to report your experience to the District and or law enforcement if appropriate. You have the right to file a report with either the District or law enforcement. The LACCD administrative process and law enforcement investigation can occur simultaneously.

LACCD has designated DHR and Deputy Title IX Coordinators who are specially trained to work with individuals who report DHR concerns and provide information about resources, support services, and procedural options. Do not hesitate to reach us if you require assistance.

Reporting to LACCD

You may file a complaint using our online form.

Report an Incident

Remember, you can make a report at any time. However, if there is a significant delay in making your report, the response of ODEI and available recourse may be limited. Therefore, you are encouraged to make a report as soon as possible after an incident. All reports are treated with the high level of seriousness and sensitivity they deserve. Retaliation against any person for making a report or participating in an investigation is strictly prohibited by District policy. If you decide not to make a report, or if you are unsure about reporting, you are still entitled to receive confidential support through your Colleges Student Health Center, as well as request changes to your academic and on-campus employment situations.

Reporting to Law Enforcement

You have the right to file a report with law enforcement as well as the District. You can file a criminal complaint with the Sheriff’s Department at your College or local police department, depending on where the incident took place.

For crimes that occurred on a LACCD property, contact the Sheriff’s Department at your College location.

For crimes that occurred off-campus, contact the local police department or call 911.

For crimes involving law enforcement and to file a complaint with the Sheriff's Department, you may visit the LASD website or call the following numbers:

Sheriff's Department General Complaint Line: 1-800-698-8255

Sheriff's Community College Bureau: (323) 669-7564

Clery Act Information

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the Clery Act) is a federal law and accompanying regulations that require colleges to disclose certain timely information about campus crime, and security and safety policies annually. Compliance with the Clery Act is a condition for colleges that participate in the federal student aid program. As a part of its Clery program, LACCD Colleges collect and publish statistical information on crimes occurring on and around campus, as well as relevant crime and safety information annually.

File a Complaint with an External Agency

The California Civil Rights Department (CCRD) is the state agency charged with enforcing California’s civil rights laws. CCRD aims to protect the people of California from unlawful discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations.

To submit a complaint to CCRD, you can create an account and use their interactive online Cal Civil Rights System.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of their membership in a protected class.

You can submit a filing with the EEOC using the EEOC online portal.

The Office of Civil Rights enforces several Federal civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination in programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance from the Department of Education.

You can file a OCR civil rights complaint online.

The District makes no determination as to whether your concerns can be further reviewed by an external agency, and any questions you have regarding those processes should be directed to those agencies. You may contact those agencies directly by going to the appropriate website provided.

Campus Specific Resources

Your DHR Coordinators have created flyers for each campus with specific contacts and confidential resources available to those impacted by Title IX (gender-based discrimination or harassment) and DHR concerns.
