Public Safety Department

At CSM, the safety of our students, employees, visitors, and community members are of utmost concern.

We have public safety officers on each of our campuses every day, and we have established processes for dealing threats and emergencies when they arise. These are always being reviewed to ensure the best possible responses. It is crucial for each of us to be aware of what's happening around us and know how to respond appropriately when we sense any suspicious activity.

Crime prevention means being aware of your environment and remaining alert to situations that could make you vulnerable. Colleges and public venues need the help and vigilance of their citizens to help keep the environment safe. At CSM, our Public Safety Department cannot keep the campuses safe on its own; it's the responsibility of everyone who comes to CSM to work, learn, or socialize to be aware of their surroundings and to report any unusual threats, sightings, or events.

Crime prevention is everyone's responsibility. Please take a few minutes to review the crime prevention tips listed on the Public Safety portion of the CSM website.

With your help CSM will continue to be a safe place to learn, work, and be enriched.
