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.
