The Office of Safety and Security considers the safety,
security and well-being of Salve Regina's students, faculty, staff and visitors
our highest priority. The office consists of non-law enforcement officers who
work to prevent crime, provide high-visibility security patrols and respond
quickly and effectively to University needs.
Safety and security officers are on duty 24 hours a day,
365 days a year, patrolling campus on foot, in marked security vehicles and on
police mountain bikes. Our officers attend the Rhode Island Public Safety
Training Academy and receive in-service training throughout the year. All
officers are first aid and CPR/defibrillator certified annually, and at
present, five of our 15 officers are certified as emergency medical technicians.
The Office of Safety and Security oversees the
residence hall card access system, parking permits, shuttle services, lost and
found, medical transports and bicycle registration. The office maintains an
excellent working relationship with local police and fire departments, and the
director communicates frequently with other Rhode Island institutions of higher
education regarding college-related activities and incidents.
