The mission of the Saint Joseph’s College Campus Safety Department is to enhance the quality of life for the entire Saint Joseph’s College community by maintaining a secure and open environment where the safety of all is balanced with the rights of the individual. The Department of Campus Safety strives to accomplish its mission while adhering to its core values of Professionalism, Integrity, Communication, Service, and Respect.

The success of this mission depends upon an effective working relationship between Campus Safety personnel and the diverse elements of the Saint Joseph’s College community, including students, staff, faulty, and visitors. Critical to this relationship is mutual respect; therefore, we pledge to respect the diverse needs and interests of the community we serve. We pledge to be diligent and relentless in the protection of persons, property, and reputation of Saint Joseph’s College.

Campus Safety enjoys a collaborative relationship with Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, Standish Fire-EMS, as well as other local emergency responders.

In the event it becomes necessary to notify the Saint Joseph’s College community of an imminent emergency on campus, notification will be sent using the RAVE emergency management alert system. Brief and immediate instructions will be given and subsequent updates will be sent as necessary.

To ensure that you receive timely notification of campus emergencies and security alerts, we encourage all members of the campus community to regularly review and update their contact information.
