The mission of Hartwick College Campus Safety is to provide a safe and secure environment for all students, faculty, and visitors to our community.
The Department of Campus Safety operates 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Campus Safety consists of 12 full- and part-time safety officers and four dispatchers. Officers patrol the campus in vehicles and on foot, and routinely patrol all residential living areas, classrooms, and office areas on campus.
Hartwick College Campus Safety is a proprietary security force of fully-trained and certified security officers as required by New York State Law. Campus Safety Officers are not police officers and do not make arrests. Campus Safety does, however, work closely with local and state police departments in investigating criminal activity on campus.
Campus Safety Officers are primarily responsible for maintaining:
- a safe and secure living and working environment
- the efficient flow of traffic
- the enforcement of parking regulations on campus
- facilities security and property protection
- emergency response
They are also responsible for assuring compliance with the rules and regulations of Hartwick College.
The Office of Campus Safety works closely with the Student Affairs and Residence Life staff to implement programs to increase student awareness and safety while minimizing criminal incidents.
A truly safe campus can only be achieved through the full cooperation of all students, faculty, and staff. Our website contains valuable information about topics vital to maintaining a safe environment. Those of us in Campus Safety hope you will take the time to read through it as part of your responsibility in creating a safe environment for yourself and others on campus.
It is our goal to ensure that all students feel comfortable on campus. Therefore anyone may address their concerns directly to the Director of Campus Safety at any time. We believe student, faculty, and staff input and feedback is an integral part of a professional, proactive campus safety department.
The prevention of crime and ensuring a safe and secure environment is the responsibility of everyone. Working together we can keep Hartwick College a safe place to live, learn, work, and visit.
