The Office of Campus Safety is located at 203 Caroline Street adjacent to Blackwell
Auditorium and provides 24 hour service to the community. The Campus Safety Office
embraces the entire college community and provides continuous service to maintain
a reasonably safe environment in which members of the community can pursue their
various activities and which the college can fulfill its mission.
The primary functions of the Office of Campus Safety are: to protect and assist
citizens of the college community and to safeguard its property and resources, to
enforce the rules and regulations of the college as well as federal, state, and
local law, and to treat all persons equally with respect, regardless to race, gender,
religion, or sexual orientation.
Our safety program includes a number of professional, educational, and crime preventive
services to generate a sense of personal responsibility in each individual to reduce
criminal opportunities. In addition to patrolling buildings and grounds 24 hours
a day, we patrol the campus on foot, by vehicle and bicycle. Various community services
are provided or supported by the campus safety staff, including: after hour escort
service, online property and vehicle registration, providing venue to confidentially
report criminal activity via our Silent Witness Crime Alert Program, crime prevention
programs, responding to panic alarms, locking and unlocking buildings, requests
for assistance, emergency response, timely warning alerts, crime statistics, and
maintaining a harmonious working relationship with local law enforcement agencies,
commonwealth's attorney's office, the courts and local government.
We are not law enforcement officers, but we do take responsibility to protect the
campus grounds and facilities; and the faculty, staff, alumni, students, and visitors
of Randolph-Macon College. Campus Safety Officers are trained in mediation for conflict
resolution to reduce conflict within the educational system. In short, we are very
familiar with the campus and the security and safety needs of our community. In
addition to the myriad of security and safety-related functions, we manage the campus
parking program, produce student identification cards and monitor our high tech
The College's safety and security measure are designed to address every area of
