More about us

Having a director, assistant director, dispatch manager, five patrol supervisors, office staff and part-time student dispatchers and patrol persons, the Campus Safety Department coordinates all campus safety operations.

Student officers receive training in campus safety officer procedures, emergency medical procedures and CPR. Student patrol officers are not armed and conduct foot and vehicle patrols of the campus and residence hall areas 24/7. Vehicle escorts are provided after dark and for medical reasons.

Campus Safety enforces all college rules and regulations. Local police are called for arrests relating to violations of city/state laws. Campus Safety keeps a working relationship with local, county and state police.

Reasonable effort is made to stay aware of crimes occurring in the area that might pose a threat to the college community.

Campus Safety and other staff enforce the ban on possession and use of alcohol, illegal drugs and weapons or firearms anywhere on campus.
