Springfield College is committed to assisting all members of the Springfield College community in providing for their own safety and security.; As required by federal law, each year Springfield College prepares an annual Security and Fire Safety Report, commonly referred to as the Clery Report. The Report contains information regarding campus security and personal safety including topics such as crime prevention, fire safety, crime reporting policies, disciplinary procedures and other matters of importance related to security and safety on campus.

It also contains information about crime statistics for the three previous calendar years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Springfield College, and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the Springfield College campus, as well as fire statistics for the three previous calendar years concerning Springfield College’s residence halls.

Statistics for the nine campuses of the Springfield College School of Professional and Continuing Studies are also included in this report.

A copy of the most recent report is available here. In addition, the Springfield College Department of Public Safety will provide a paper copy of the report upon request.

Our Officers

Our public safety officers are here to serve our campus community. All of our officers are commissioned under Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 22c, Section 63, and have full law enforcement authority in and upon all property owned, occupied, or used by the College.

Our Medical Response Team

All Springfield College police officers are qualified to respond to medical emergencies. As trained first responders, each officer is CPR and automatic external defibrillator (AED) certified. Each cruiser is equipped with a fully stocked medical supply bag as well as oxygen and AEDs. Community service officers are required to be CPR certified and our department oversees the College Emergency Medical Services Club. This team is comprised of emergency medical service management students who assist with responding to medical emergency calls on campus.

Our Dispatch Center

As the backbone of our department, our telecommunicators provide constant communication with our officers, outside agencies, and you. While on shift, our telecommunicators maintain a log of calls, share information, and monitor other police agencies, alarm systems, and CCTV monitors. They also assist with issuing parking permits as needed.
