About Campus Safety

Director's Message

Welcome to Hilbert College Campus Safety. Our mission is to protect the campus community to ensure a safe environment in which to live and learn - one that's located in a safe, suburban area. Taking personal safety steps as well as reporting suspicious activities are some of the best ways you can help us to continue providing a secure campus environment.

Campus Safety is staffed by a director and eight officers who are licensed by New York State and have first aid/CPR and AED (automated external defibrillator) training. Officers also receive training in other areas throughout the year. Campus safety officers are not police, however, they do have the authority to detain anyone on-campus who is behaving in a disorderly manner, committing a crime or posing a threat to themselves or others. You will see officers patrolling the campus by marked patrol car, golf cart or on foot 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We take pride in our duties to ensure the safety of all. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact campus safety at any time.

Director
