The Campus Safety Department coordinates all campus safety operations on campus. The Campus Safety Department consists of a director, an operations manager, a dispatch manager, five patrol supervisors, office staff, and 40 part-time student dispatchers and patrol persons.
Student patrol persons receive training in basic campus safety officer procedures, emergency medical procedures, and CPR. Campus Safety patrol persons are not armed. They conduct foot and vehicular patrols of the campus and residence hall areas 24 hours a day. In addition, an escort service is provided in the evening and night time hours.
Campus Safety patrol persons enforce all college rules and regulations. Local police are called in for any arrest relating to violations of city or state laws. The Campus Safety Department maintains a working relationship with local, county, and state police agencies.
Local and state police agencies do not as a practice inform the college of criminal activity in the vicinity of the college campus. A reasonable attempt is made to be aware of any crimes occurring in the area of the campus that would pose a threat to the college community.
Campus Safety as well as the residence life staff enforce the campus wide ban or possession and use of alcohol and illegal drugs. Possession of dangerous weapons or firearms anywhere on campus, including the residence halls, is a violation of the Student Conduct Code.
We strive for a safe and well-ordered campus environment, effective communications, relevant education, and respectful service of the highest integrity.
