    Security Escort Service to Vehicles

    Security Officers are on campus whenever the college is open. You may request a security escort to your vehicle by contacting the Information Center or by asking a security officer directly.

    Personal Panic Alarm Devices

    Panic button devices are available to faculty, staff, students and patrons of the college based on individual security needs. Signals from the panic buttons are received in house and Westminster Security, the alarm center. The college's Security Officers will respond to the location of the signal. 

    This system is active in all of the college buildings but not the exterior areas of the campus. These panic buttons are not a direct link to police. 

    Contact Security at x8600 (from an internal phone) or 410-386-8600 (from an external phone). 

    Theft Prevention

    Do not leave valuable articles unattended. Keep possessions with you and within sight at all times. Keep your car doors locked and your valuables out of sight or stored in the trunk of your vehicle.

    If a theft occurs, notify a campus Security Officer by calling x8123 or 410-386-8123 as soon as possible.

    Security Cameras

    The college has security cameras strategically located inside and outside of the buildings, which can be monitored by Security.
