You’ve seen the silver SUVs drive around campus. You’ve stopped by the Campus Safety office for an ID or a parking sticker. But what else do we do?

We do what we can to keep PSC safe.

And what does that mean? It means “Educating all members of the campus community in understanding that their safety on campus depends, not only on themselves, but it also depends on the actions of everyone else on campus,” says Fire Safety Officer Paul Otenti. Also, it means being approachable, so everyone can feel comfortable coming to us with any concerns. “We’re here to help,” says Assistant Director Holly Parker.

We provide a variety of services – from room or vehicle lock-outs and safety escorts, to responding to any type of emergency – so that you can relax on campus. Our Administrative Assistant, Cindy, is also a notary public. She’s in the office 8 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday, if you need any documents notarized.

We offer Fire and Safety courses, and Rape Aggression Defense courses for women, to help you learn the best ways to stay safe.

We let you know what’s going on. Check out our Facebook page (Paul Smith’s College Campus Safety), where we’ll be sharing safety tips every day during National Campus Safety Awareness Month. We’re also on Twitter (@PSCCampusSafety) and Instagram (PSCCampusSafety) with news and photos of what’s happening.

And if you haven’t already, check out the events we’ve got going on throughout September. You can find them on the Facebook page, and we’ll also be adding events to the Smitties Engaged calendar in the UpTo app.

If you ever have questions or concerns, give us a call or stop into the office (for those who haven’t been: we’re next to the US Post Office, across from the gazebo).

If we work together, we can #KeepPSCSafe
