College Preparedness

Campus Police work closely with local fire and police departments, as well as other municipal, state, and federal authorities to ensure the safety of the college community. 
The Elsbree Street campus in Fall River is patrolled year-round, 24/7 by Campus Police and contracted security officers.  (Contracted security officers are non-sworn civilians and do not have police powers.)

The same contracted security company provides services and answers calls on our Attleboro, New Bedford, and Taunton campuses. 

In addition to physical patrols, the Campus Police Department utilizes more than 70 surveillance cameras to monitor all campuses.  These cameras continuously monitor and record key areas of all campuses.
