Campus Safety

An environment that promotes student learning involves providing a safe and secure campus for the entire University community. The University employs a number of security measures to protect the members of its community, including safety training, text and email alert systems, emergency call boxes, video surveillance, and anonymous tip lines, among others, as part of a comprehensive, proactive public safety program. A 5,811-square-foot public safety building with a state-of-the-art dispatch/communication center was completed in Fall 2013.

CCU’s police division is a full-service police department with officers who patrol campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is comprised of two types of uniformed officer – University police officers and security officers – and civilian staff members. Officers patrol by car, bicycle, golf cart or on foot and have completed service-oriented training.

Services available from the Department of Public Safety include after-hours emergencies, motorist assistance, Chauncey Patrol (escort service), a tip line and more.
