About Campus Safety

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 programs 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 vehicle registration, providing venue to confidentially report criminal activity via our Silent Witness Crime Alert Program, crime prevention programs, responding to 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 security system.

The College's safety and security measure are designed to address every area of campus life. A safe college environment also depends on the awareness and cooperation of individual members of the community.
