Campus Safety & Security

Safety 24/7

SUNY Adirondack Peace Officers are ready to help students, faculty and staff 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Campus safety and law enforcement is coordinated by your campus Public Safety Office, located in the Residence Hall, Room 164. The office has a force of sworn

Peace Officers with full arrest powers. Each officer must meet the high standards of training administered by New York State’s Division of Criminal Justice Services and undergo continuous training to upgrade skills.

Campus Public Safety Officers conduct foot and vehicle patrols throughout the campus and residence hall around the clock, 365 days a year.

We need your help

Victims and witnesses can report a crime on a voluntary and confidential basis. Official investigations of criminal offenses are conducted by Public Safety and the appropriate local authority.

All members of the campus community are encouraged to report criminal incidents, emergencies and suspicious activity in a timely manner. All reports are classified, logged and responded to appropriately.

Stay connected

If an incident occurs the college feels may have an effect on the safety and well being of the college community, information concerning the incident will be communicated by one or more of the following channels:

• NY –Alert
• Paper flyers
• Student/staff email
• Bulletin boards
• College website

Protect yourself

Sign up for NY-Alert in Banner Self-Service to receive emergency safety notices.

Carry your card

Full-time and part-time students must have a SUNY Adirondack identification card, which they are expected to carry at all times.

A fee is charged when the cards are issued, and a replacement fee also will be charged for any lost or stolen IDs.

Nursing students are required to get a separate ID for use in the hospital upon clearance form the nursing division.

 

"We are here in the dorm to watch over things and keep these kids safe, but we have also helped change tires, jumpstart cars and even just lent an ear when they needed someone to talk to."

Auto assistance

If you lock your keys in your vehicle in a campus lot or are stranded with a dead battery, contact the Office of Public Safety. An officer will meet you at your vehicle. Lock-out and jump-starting services are free of charge but do require you to sign a waiver before the officer can touch the vehicle.

 

Personal safety escorts

The Office of Public Safety provides personal safety escorts to all members of the college community, 24 hours per day, every day, unless otherwise indicated.

 

Lost and found

Any article that is lost or found – including books, keys and wallets – should be reported or returned to the Public Safety Office in the Residence Hall. At the end of each academic year, items left in Lost and Found are destroyed or donated to local agencies.

 

Keep an inventory

The Public Safety Office encourages students to keep a record of their most valuable possessions. The record should include a description for each item, including size, color, serial number, date of purchase and value. Having the information record makes it easier for the police to identify and return items if recovered after a loss or theft.

Keep records for your:
• Camera
• Television
• DVD player
• Cellphone
• Stereo
• iPod
• Calculator
• Computer
• Game system
