The Department of Public Safety provides uniformed security officers on campus, along with telecommunications staff in its office, at all times.
Please visit our MiddAlert page for the most up-to-date information about emergency notifications.
Department members regularly patrol campus on foot and in cruisers and respond to emergencies.
Public Safety officers don’t have the power to make arrests but work closely with local law-enforcement agencies. Our officers have the authority to stop individuals on campus and to request identification. They also can issue parking tickets and notices of trespass.
We maintain three fully equipped vehicles, which the officers use (in addition to patrolling on foot and bike) to patrol the College’s main campus’ buildings and grounds. Officers carry radios and are certified in CPR, first aid, and Automated External Defibrillator (AED). They attend workshops and training seminars relevant to campus security and safety. Additionally, many in Public Safety have extensive prior experiences in law enforcement, safety, security work, and emergency medical and fire response.
