Campus Safety & Security
From the Director
The Safety and Security Department is a full time twenty-four hour and three hundred sixty-five days a year operation. Our goal is provide a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors to live, work and study. The Safety and Security staff is trained to respond to many types of situations including emergencies such as fire, medical illness and injuries, and criminal activity. We work closely with local law enforcement, fire department and EMS personnel.
All security officers are NYS licensed and trained according to state standards. In addition, the staff receives training in basic first aid, conflict management techniques, first response for mental health concerns and violations of rules and laws.
In addition, we directly act upon our motto of serve, guide and protect:
Serve – escorts, unlocks, jump starts, investigate.
Guide – direct proper behavior, educate to rules and laws.
Protect – check suspicious persons and behavior.
The mission of the St. John Fisher College Safety and Security Department is to provide a safe and secure environment for the students, faculty, staff, and visitors of St. John Fisher College. The department will serve, guide and protect the St. John Fisher Community and visitors of our campus. The Safety and Security Department is assigned the primary responsibility of providing expertise and support services to enhance the institution's educational mission.
All members of the Safety and Security Department are expected to actively participate in the achievement of these goals. Each member must possess the willingness and ability to work cooperatively with one another, as well as with the campus community at large. The Department is also expected to work closely and effectively with a culturally and socially diverse and rich campus community where other values are encouraged to be shared, accepted and appreciated.
