The Office of Campus Safety is centrally located on campus, next to the U.S. Post Office.

The Office of Campus Safety maintains a safe, secure and learning-friendly environment for students, faculty and staff.  We protect college property, register vehicles, direct and control traffic and parking, investigate motor vehicle complaints, conduct investigations, provide after-dark escort services between parking lots and other campus locations and residence halls, and respond to emergency situations and complaints.  Campus Safety is not a law-enforcement agency.  While our officers enforce College policy, they do not make arrests or issue court appearance tickets.  If students require medical or law-enforcement assistance, Campus Safety officers will assess the situation and make appropriate referrals.  Neither the Office of Campus Safety nor Residence Life staff will transport students to the hospital.


  • All Campus Safety officers are licensed as New York State security guards.
  • All officers are trained/certified in basic first aid, blood-borne pathogens, emergency oxygen administration, CPR, automated external defibrillator (AED), Narcan administration, mental health first aid, OSHA 10 Hour General Industry, and incident command.  Training is conducted continuously throughout the year in order to better serve the Paul Smith’s College community.
