Campus Safety Services
(AMS Walkhome and Queen's First Aid)
Campus Security provides escorted walks from one point on campus to another for staff, faculty and students when Walk Home is off duty. This service is provided at any time day or night, all year round. Anyone who wishes to be escorted may phone Security at 533-6080 and request an escort. Security Staff will be sent to meet you and will escort you to your destination.
Although Queen's is a very safe campus, incidents of violence do occur. Would you know what to do if one of your colleagues started behaving abusively or violently? The Queen's Policy Against Campus Violence is a good starting point, as is the information contained in the article "Workplace Violence" found in the Emergency Response Procedures section of this site.
In addition to the information found on this web site, Campus Security is happy to talk to you about recognition, prevention and response to incidents of campus violence. Queen's Campus Security also offers a NonViolent Crisis Intervention Course that may be of interest to you or your department.
The Campus Watch program is a joint initiative by Campus Security and Environmental Health and Safety (EHS). Currently, there are over 140 volunteer Safety Officers at Queen’s, reporting to the Director of Environmental Health and Safety. Each of these officers is responsible for a building, unit or area on campus. Their duties include safety inspections, recommending enhancements to health and safety measures and acting as a conduit for safety related information between their unit and EHS.
The Campus Watch program adds security issues to their current terms of reference. Safety Officers will now have the following additional responsibilities:
This system allows for quick and effective distribution of security related information, especially alerts, throughout the Queen’s community. It also provides all faculty, staff and students with an individual in their workplace to turn to with security concerns who can then work with both the unit head and Campus Security to enhance their internal security measures. The result is a safer and more secure campus.
If you work alone at night (or weekends, holidays, etc.) feel free to phone the ERC @ Campus Security at 613.533-6080 and report:
The ERC Operator will ask you:
If you do not call at the end of your work period, security staff will come and check on you.
If you would like to know more about the services and programs offered by Campus Security, or what you can do to keep yourself and your property safe on or off campus, Campus Security is happy to have one of our senior staff members speak to your group on security issues of concern to you. Please contact the Director of Campus Security, David Patterson to arrange a training session that meets the specific security awareness needs of your group.
Advice & Consultation
If you have concerns about the physical security of your building, department, office, classroom or lab, we can perform a physical security survey of your facility and advise you on the options available to you to enhance your physical security. We can provide advice and guidance on physical layout, security systems such as alarms, access control systems or CCTV and internal procedures to enhance physical security.
