Security

Campus Security (315-445-4444)

The primary function of the Campus Security is to offer an environment conducive to personal and academic development for students, staff and faculty through service and prevention. The office strives to achieve these goals through conspicuous and covert patrol, ethical and professional investigative procedures, education of the public and constant training of department personnel.

It is the philosophy of Le Moyne College to prevent crimes from occurring, rather than react to them after the fact. A way to accomplish this goal is through the crime prevention program at the College. This program is designed to eliminate or minimize criminal opportunities, whenever possible, and encourage students and employees to be responsible for their own safety as well as the security of the others. The following is a the listing of the crime prevention programs and projects used by Le Moyne College:

 

1) Shuttle Service: A student escort service is offered from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week, during the academic year, for students traveling between Le Moyne College owned properties.

2) Crime Prevention Programs: Campus Security provides crime prevention and campus safety awareness presentations to both students and College employees.

3) Blue Light Emergency Telephones: These emergency telephones are strategically located throughout the campus and are distinguished by the overhead blue light. Blue light telephones ring directly into the Campus Security dispatch center.

4) Security Surveys: Comprehensive inspections of exterior lighting, exterior doors and grounds are conducted by the director of Campus Security each year.

5) Operation Identification: The engraving of serial numbers or owner-recognized numbers on items is available through Campus Security.

6) Video Monitoring: Campus Security monitors and records residence hall entrances, student parking lots and other campus facilities by means of closed-circuit television cameras.

7) Sexual Assault, Education and Prevention: In cooperation with Student Development, the Office of Campus Life and Leadership and the Wellness Center for Health and Counseling, a multitude of programs and presentations are made available each year to the members of the campus community to promote healthy behavior and their awareness of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.

8) Operation ‘lock-out’: A program to better educate students on the importance of locking their room. Resident advisors and area directors (RAs/ADs) lock the doors of students who have left their room doors open and hang a flier on the doorknob about keeping their room secure. This program is administered during the fall semester by campus life and leadership staff.

9) Enhanced Telephone System: All calls received by Campus Security from a College phone, Emergency Blue Light Telephone and Elevator Emergency phones are immediately identified in security by extension and/or location.

Parking Regulations, Registration and Costs

Le Moyne College extends to its students and employees the privilege of parking on campus. That privilege brings with it the responsibility to adhere to all parking regulations outlined in this policy. It is the responsibility of all students, faculty, staff and visitors to read and follow these regulations. Failure to comply may result in a parking ticket being issued, the vehicle being towed at the owner/operator’s expense, suspension of on campus parking privileges and/or disciplinary action being taken by the College. Use of any Le Moyne College parking lot requires proper display of a valid parking permit. Obtaining the required permit does not guarantee a parking space.  Lack of available spaces does not justify violating the parking regulations. 

Le Moyne’s parking lots are not designed to accommodate driving a vehicle to and from classes, meals, meetings, club activities or athletics.  A vehicle should be considered a means to get to and from campus, not various points around campus.   The College is configured in such a way that our parking lots connect to sidewalks and pathways that are designed to accommodate pedestrian traffic throughout the campus.

Because of the severe winter conditions, it may become necessary for all students to remove their vehicles from parking lots when requested for snow removal (a 24-hour notice will be given). Vehicles that are not removed may be ticketed and towed.

The College is not responsible for vandalism or theft from vehicles.

Student Parking Permits
All students bringing a vehicle to campus: resident, commuter, part time and graduate, must register their vehicles. Parking permits can be obtained online at:  lemoyne.thepermitstore.com .  Students should have their vehicle registration, student I.D. and credit card available when registering online to ensure accurate information.

Parking permits are required for all vehicles that will be parked on Le Moyne’s property and operated by students. This includes residence halls, apartments, as well as College owned student houses.  Vehicles parked at College owned houses cannot be parked on the lawn, blocking sidewalks or extending into the street.
