Campus Safety

The mission of the Emmanuel College Campus Safety Department is to enhance the quality of life for the entire Emmanuel College community by maintaining a secure and open environment where the safety of all is balanced with the rights of the individual. The Campus Safety Department strives to accomplish its mission while adhering to its core values of "Integrity, Professionalism and Service."

The success of this mission depends upon an effective working relationship between Campus Safety personnel and the diverse elements of the Emmanuel College community, including students, staff, faculty and visitors. Critical to this relationship is mutual respect. Therefore, we pledge to respect the diverse needs and interests of the community we serve. We pledge to be diligent and relentless in the protection of persons, property and the reputation of Emmanuel College. Although reported crime at Emmanuel is low, it is important for students, faculty, staff and visitors to remember that we are located in an urban setting and share many of the safety issues that exist in any city. Preserving the safety and security of the College is the combined responsibility of the entire community.

Emmanuel College Campus Safety provides full-service police and security to the Emmanuel College community. The Campus Safety Office is open 24 hours/day, 365 days per year. The Sworn Staff includes a Director/Chief of Campus Safety and Lieutenant/Shift Commanders. The Non-Sworn staff includes Sergeants and Campus Safety Officers. Campus Safety also employs a cadre of student workers who perform myriad functions. Campus Safety maintains a very close working relationship with the Boston Police Department, Massachusetts State Police, five other Colleges of the Fenway Public Safety Departments and MASCO (Medical Academic Scientific Community Organization). Most importantly, Campus Safety works closely with all segments of the Emmanuel Community to ensure that our environment nurtures scholarship and learning.
