The Campus Public Safety Departments offer to students, faculty, and staff crime  prevention programs that are useful in the protection of property and contribute to the physical well-being of the campus community.  The programs relate to aspects of crime prevention and personal safety and are arranged at the convenience of the persons interested in the information.  The programs are designed to serve as a deterrent to criminal activity.  All programs are arranged upon request and can be offered to specific College offices, departments, or organizations where applicable.

  1. Personal Safety Program
    The Campus Public Safety Departments provide a limited escort program particularly during the evening hours, for people walking on campus to the parking lots.  Students, faculty and staff are asked to walk with others when possible and to choose paths that are well lit.
  2. New Student Orientation
    Crime prevention materials are provided and questions answered during new student orientation meetings.
  3. Blue Light Emergency Phones
    Blue Light Emergency Phones are located in prominent locations on the campus parking lots.  In addition, some campuses are equipped with Blue Light Emergency Phones in high traffic areas within buildings.  The Blue Light Emergency Phones connect callers directly to the Campus Public Safety Department dispatch center, which will notify police or fire personnel to respond as appropriate to the situation.
