Valley Christian Schools is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our students, their families, staff, and visitors. The security team will work with all members of our school community and neighbors in order to protect life and property, and to ensure Valley Christian’s Quest for Excellence is reflected in all aspects of our responsibilities. We are committed to providing quality support and expedient service.
The VCS Security Services is charged to provide security services in many ways. Safety is first. Our duties include, but are not limited to:
• Traffic management (vehicular/pedestrian)
• Documentation of incidents
• 24/7 security staffing
• Mobile patrol in marked security vehicles
• Foot patrol throughout the campus
• Surveillance cameras
• Digital recordings of the camera system
• After hours building access
• Security for students who park off site (Park n’ Ride)
• First-aid, CPR and AED certification for each security officer
• Cell phone connectivity with security staff on duty
The VCS Security Services Staff integrates former police officers at both campuses of Valley Christian Schools as armed security supervisors. As part of the security team there is a measure of security, training and experience that only a trained police officer can provide.
My name is Joel Gonzalez, Director of Security and am a retired police officer for the City of San Jose, CA. In my 32 years of police work, I served the citizens of San Jose in many different capacities. I started my career as a patrol officer and through the years assumed different and challenging responsibilities as a training officer in the Bureau of Field Operations, academy instructor in the Bureau of Administration, and as a motorcycle officer in the Traffic Enforcement Unit. I am committed to serve the students, families, and staff of VCS with the same passion, enthusiasm, and dedication. With this in mind, our security department is committed to protect, serve, and assist the Valley Christian community to the best of our ability. Our security team is eager to assist. Please let us know if there are any concerns you have with safety, traffic, or security on campus. With your help, we can do more to ensure the safety of all. Remember this, ‘If you see something, say something’.
