The Department of Public Safety is here to ensure the safety and security of the entire college community. We provide security 24 hours a day, 365 days a year that includes mobile patrols, security posts, closed circuit cameras, late night escorts and other protective measures.
We issue notifications and warnings to advise our community of crime trends and other safety issues. The Department of Public Safety employs highly trained, full time peace officers and security guards. We maintain close ties with the New York Police Department and we are in regular contact with the local precincts where incidents are reviewed and deployment is analyzed in order to better serve the College.
While we pledge to work diligently to serve and protect, we cannot do it alone. We ask for your cooperation and assistance. Our officers have been instructed to require ID from all students, faculty and staff before allowing them into buildings. Please do not take this personally. This is a prudent step toward protecting all of us. Also, if you see something suspicious, report it to an officer or call public safety. The campus grounds are well lit and patrolled frequently. Statistics prove it is a safe place to be. It is still important to take prudent steps as you would in any urban area to protect yourself.
Please note that there is a free College Shuttle Service
that loops around the vicinity and also goes to the nearest subway stations. Check the website for exact stops and times. If you’re studying or working outside normal school hours and are uncomfortable walking alone, call us for an escort to your car, the nearest subway station, or our campus residence hall, The Towers.
We can be reached 24 hours a day at ext. 7777 or dial (212) 650-7777.
