Emmanuel College Campus Safety Officers patrol the campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Campus Safety Officers patrol all buildings during all hours of operation, as well as during non-operational periods. While patrolling, Campus Safety Officers monitor all activities, respond to alarms and other emergency situations, conduct safety and security audits, maintain control of vehicle traffic onto the campus and enforce College parking regulations. All Campus Safety Officers are equipped with two-way radio communications and stay in constant contact with the Safety Department Communications Center while on patrol.
Emmanuel College Campus Safety additionally utilizes bicycle patrol as an effective way of patrolling the campus while increasing visibility among the Emmanuel College community. Officers selected for bike patrol can cover a much larger area and travel faster than a foot patrol officer. Officers ride as weather allows from April thru November.
Campus Safety Officers will walk you from any building or parking lot to any location on Emmanuel College property. Call the Campus Safety Office to request an escort. A Campus Safety Officer will be promptly dispatched to assist you. This service is offered 24 hours a day.
Campus Safety Officers will operate the College shuttle vehicle to transport students, staff and faculty to/from the off campus residence halls at the Inn at Longwood, the Wentworth Residence Hall, the Landmark Center and Ruggles T-Stop between the hours of 6 p.m. and 2 a.m. The shuttle will also be utilized for minor medical transport to the BI Emergency Room at the request of Health Services or College administration.
All Campus Safety Officers have been trained as first responders and have gone through first aid and automated external defibrillator (AED). For this reporting year Campus Safety responded to 64 medical calls ranging in severity.

Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Program
The Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Program taught by a certified Emmanuel College Campus Safety Officer empowers female students, faculty and staff to combat various types of assaults by providing them with realistic self-defense tactics and techniques. This empowerment is taught through four basic principles: education, dependency on self, making one's own decisions and the realization of one's own power. The objective of RAD is to develop and enhance self-defense options for women. The course begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing to the basics of hands-on defense training. The classes provide women with the knowledge to make educated decisions about resistance.
For more information about RAD on campus or to determine when the next course will run, please contact the RAD coordinator at the Campus Safety Office.
Lost and Found
The College is not responsible for lost or stolen articles, and students are urged to mark their books and belongings clearly. Students who find lost articles should bring them to the Campus Safety office located in the Administration Building, Plaza level, room J 002. Persons claiming lost articles must describe the article and present adequate identification.
Operation ID is a program designed to discourage theft of valuable property and provides a way for you to easily identify stolen property if necessary. Most thieves steal valuables for resale. So, if marked with a permanent identification number, thieves will find it harder to sell the valuables.
You may borrow an engraving tool from the Campus Safety office by displaying your student ID card and filling out a simple form. Once you have engraved an identification number on property such as laptops, bikes, cameras, etc. list the items on the Personal Property Record form Campus Safety will include with the engraver. You may wish to make an additional copy of your Personal Property Record to keep at your permanent address.
Access to Campus Facilities
With the exception of residence halls, College facilities are open to the public during the day and evening hours when classes are in session. When the College is closed, buildings are locked. All students must enter and exit the residence halls through the main entrance. Side doors are alarmed 24 hours a day and may be used only as fire/emergency exits. The front doors of the residence halls are locked at all times except for times when the College deems it appropriate for doors to remain open.
Security Alert Notices
Emmanuel College community members will be advised of security incidents that have occurred on or near the campus which may, in the opinion of the College, affect their safety. Particular methods of notification may include posted bulletins in campus buildings and residence halls or via E-Mail.
