The Springfield College Department of Public Safety strives to keep campus safe. Our police officers and security officers are fully trained, and we’re here for you–24 hours per day, seven days per week.

In addition to officers, we also have a dispatch center and a security force, and we can respond to medical emergencies. We also offer various services, including a shuttle, campus escort service, and educational programs.

Our Medical Response Team

All Springfield College police officers are qualified to help in medical emergencies. They’re certified as first responders, in CPR, and with the automatic external defibrillator (AED). First aid equipment, oxygen, and AEDs are carried in each of the cruisers. Security officers also are required to be certified in CPR. We also oversee the College's EMS Club, comprised of emergency medical service management students who volunteer to assist the police in response to medical calls.

Our Dispatch Center

Our telecommunicators play a crucial role in the Department of Public Safety. They’re the people you speak with whenever you call us. As the backbone of our department, our telecommunicators provide constant communication with officers, outside agencies, and you. They maintain a log of calls, pass on information, and issue parking permits. They also monitor other police agencies, alarm systems, CCTV monitors, and the electronic ID system.

Our Security Team

Our department employs approximately 35 uniformed, non-sworn security personnel, as well as 20 students who serve as student patrol officers. Together, these security officers are the "eyes and ears" of the police department, and play an integral part in preventing crime on the College campus. You can find them in residence halls and in parking lots two, four, and 15.
