About the Office of Safety & Security

The principal objective of the Providence College Office of Safety and Security is to safeguard members of the college community and to protect private and institutional property on campus. To accomplish this task, it is essential that violators of college rules be identified and detained. In many instances, this requires a close and constant liaison between Providence College Security Department, college officials, and all other law enforcement agencies.

As a service organization, the Security Department attempts to contribute to the smooth functioning of college community life by stressing the importance of crime prevention, the individual's obligation to take necessary precautions, the cooperation of each member of the college community to safeguard personal and college property, and the care that must be taken to comply with fire regulations.

While the Office of Safety and Security has no jurisdiction outside of the Providence College campus, it is always ready and willing to provide assistance and information to off-campus students. On some occasions, this service may include contacting the police, rescue unit, medical personnel, or parents of an injured or aggrieved student.

Providence College will do everything in its power to make the college a secure place for all who work, study, and live on campus. But maintaining a safe campus is not the work of the Security Department alone; maintaining a safe and secure campus affects all members of the college community. We ask for your help and your cooperation in our effort to make a reality at Providence College.
