The college has a variety of measures in place to ensure the well-being of the entire campus community including a team of experienced peace officers, private security and local law enforcement. For example, both the director and assistant director of the office of public safety are designated peace officers who, according to New York State law, have the power to investigate incidents and make arrests on campus. In addition, they have been empowered to carry firearms.
The college also works with a private company to provide enhanced security services on campus and at the residence hall. During special events, additional security personnel are added as needed. In addition, the college started a “Deputy on Campus” program in 2006 in conjunction with the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office. Through this cooperative effort, uniformed deputies work closely with our peace officers and private security force to patrol campus, maintain the peace and help prevent crime.
Campus safety and security is located in room C115.
