A Message from the Director of Security & Safety

The Office of Security & Safety is committed to providing quality service to the entire college community. We employ our own licensed, professional security staff, with more than half the officers either retired from local/state law enforcement or actively working in that capacity.

Please feel free to contact the department at 845-569-3200. If you have specific questions or concerns, you may contact either me or a member of my staff.
