PERSONAL & ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY
The University Police patrols the campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All sworn officers are graduates of the NYS Police Academy and receive continuous in-service training on topics that include crime prevention, CPR, bias-related crime, ethical awareness, cultural diversity, and crisis intervention.
The Community Relations team helps educate the campus community on personal safety, risk awareness, crime prevention (including date and acquaintance rape prevention), drug and alcohol risk awareness, and many other safety issues. For additional information, call 632-6350. Additional services further ensure the safety of our students and their visitors:

Environmental Health and Safety
The Department of Environmental Health and Safety is dedicated to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the campus community, as well as assisting the University in maintaining compliance with safety, health, and environmental regulations and standards in the following areas:
In the event of a fire or other emergency, seconds count. The safe, orderly, and prompt evacuation of building occupants depends on having the physical safety features of a building in operating condition as well as having an emergency evacuation plan. If you discover a fire or smoke condition, sound the building alarm by activating the nearest pull station and dial 911 from on campus or (631) 632-3333 from off campus.
