Introducing Deputy Brown—LAVC's New Sheriff's Deputy

Los Angeles Valley College welcomes Javante Brown as the new supervising deputy at the Valley College station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD). Deputy Brown is responsible for overseeing and managing public safety at the college, and the safety escort service and cadet program. In addition, he helps to educate students, faculty and staff about keeping safe on campus.

Deputy Brown has been with the LASD since 2005, and has worked in the department's Community College Bureau since October 2015. He comes to Valley College with a knowledge of the campus after serving briefly at LAVC, and then at Pierce College before coming back to Valley College. He was the evening deputy assigned to Valley College in January, and then became the full-time deputy on February 15.

He has a welcoming approach to campus safety, and can be seen frequently walking around campus to help students. He encourages people to not be afraid to approach him, and he wants to let the campus community to know that he's "with you, not against you". He is looking forward to a good working relationship with all the students, faculty and staff at Valley College. 

Deputy Brown can be reached at the LAVC Sheriff’s Station main phone number at (818) 947-2911, or by email at brownjj@lavc.eduPlease note: Campus members who need to contact the Sheriff regarding facility-related requests, please copy Anna Palacios at in your email to the deputy. 

The LAVC Station is part of the LASD. The Los Angeles Community College District contracts the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for college law enforcement services, and the nine campuses are organized under the leadership of the Sheriff's Community College Bureau. Each campus has its own mini-sheriff's station, which is staffed and equipped in the same manner as a regular station.

The LAVC station, which is staffed with LASD deputies, LASD security officers, and college cadets, offers 24-hour security coverage for all persons visiting and using the LAVC campus. For more information, visit the LAVC Sheriff's Station web page
