Campus Safety & Security

The Office of Campus Safety and Security is an integr​al part of th​e camp​us community and a positive presence ​​​on our campus. All members of the department strive to be sensitive to the needs of all while protecting the rights and property of the campus community.

Security Officers respond to all issues and emergencies on campus. If warranted, security shall contact emergency services for Police/Fire/EMS response. Please be advised that Security Officers are not armed and do not have police powers, but they will assist you. Security Officers have received First Aid, CPR and AED training in addition to instruction in campus public safety procedures.

The College also has a working relationship with the Newton Police Department. Their officers periodically patrol the campus  maintaining public order, crime prevention, and provide for the enforcement of local and state laws.
