Foothill - DeAnza Community College District
Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, the Foothill-De Anza Community College District serves the communities of Cupertino, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Stanford, Sunnyvale, and parts of Saratoga and San Jose. The Foothill-De Anza Community College District Police Department became a full-service, California Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) recognized law enforcement agency in 2001.
Beginning Aug. 1, patrol officers of the Foothill–De Anza Community College District Police Department began carrying Naloxone, better known as “Narcan,” in an effort to save lives in the event of opioid overdoses. The department is the first law enforcement agency in Santa Clara County to carry the overdose antidote. Read more about this initiative.
