The NASSAU COMMUNITY COLLEGE Public Safety Department is here to ensure that everyone’s experience on campus is a safe and secure one. In order to help you enjoy your educational experience here on campus, we have prepared this booklet. Please take the time to read it thoroughly and keep it so that you can refer to it as necessary.
Your campus Public Safety Department is dedicated to facilitating the educational process and assuring the safety and well being of the college community.
A staff of officers provides 24 hour motorized and foot patrols in and around campus buildings, and prompt response to requests for assistance ranging from reports of possible criminal activity to aiding motorists, vehicle accidents, emergencies and possible safety hazards. Scooter patrols have been added in order to place our officers in closer contact with the public they serve. The staff are trained and licensed by New York State in accordance with the Security Guard Act of 1992. While our officers are not police or peace officers, they do have the authority as granted by the Nassau County Legislature to issue parking summonses and appearance tickets under Nassau County Ordinances 372, 482, Ordinance 238-1984 and Local Law 6.
The provisions of the New York State Education Law also govern behavior on college grounds. For the safety of the college community, Public Safety Officers have the right under this law to request any person on the grounds of the campus to produce identification. The cooperation of the college populace in this regard adds to everyone’s safety.
A firm working relationship and mutual cooperation between the Nassau County Police and Public Safety ensures that all campus law enforcement needs are satisfied.
Although we have constructed barriers to deter “through” traffic, our open campus is easily accessible to all who wish to enter by vehicle or foot. Because of this open accessibility, all students, faculty and staff are encouraged to exercise a sense of personal responsibility for their own safety and well-being and the safety and well-being of others.
Obey all speed limits, traffic signs, parking regulations and the directives of Public Safety Officers in performance of their duties. If you observe a suspicious person or activity, contact Public Safety immediately for quick response and appropriate action. Our contact number is 516.572.7100. In an emergency, you can reach us on your cell phone at 516.572.7111.
Each member of the College community should consider himself or herself as an active “College Watch” participant. Working together, we can create and maintain a safe environment. Incidents observed by Public Safety patrols are reported by radio and responded to immediately. Students and staff members observing any type of incident should immediately notify a patrol unit if in sight, or call Public Safety for assistance. To facilitate the reporting of emergencies or incidents on campus, the college has installed over 100 special emergency telephones inside and outside of the buildings and in the parking fields. They provide a direct line to Public Safety and will be answered by an officer as soon as you lift the phone from its cradle or press the contact button. If using a regular campus telephone, dial extension 7111 in case of emergency. The Public Safety number is prominently displayed on all marked patrol vehicles, in the College directory and on posters throughout the campus to serve as a constant reminder and reinforcement. Whenever you see it displayed make a mental note so you’ll remember it in an emergency, or you can program the number into your cell phone for easy access. Many improvements in lighting on the campus have been made, and escorts are available from the Public Safety Office if the necessity arises. Students and staff members are advised to use the “buddy system” when going to or leaving classes.
The Physical Plant maintains the campus buildings and facilities with a concern for safety and security. The Public Safety Department and Physical Plant personnel regularly inspect the campus to ensure that safety hazards are remedied in a timely fashion, and to ensure locks, windows, and fire safety equipment operate properly.
Safety and personal well-being is a shared responsibility. There are some important things you can do to protect yourself and those around you.
- BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS. Be sure to know who and what is around you. The best way you can protect yourself is to be and appear to be aware of everything around you. People who appear to be self-assured and have an assertive “body language” are less likely to be victimized.
- PROTECT YOUR BELONGINGS. Put your name on your books and other personal property. Thieves are less likely to take well-marked items, and if they are lost or stolen, the likelihood of recovery is greatly increased if you have your name on your property.
- LOCK YOUR VEHICLE. Make sure nothing of value is left in sight from outside the vehicle.
- DON’T LEAVE ITEMS UNATTENDED. A minute is all it takes for someone to walk away with your books, or purse or any other item. It is not advisable to leave your property unattended anywhere, whether in a classroom, a food services area, or on a bench. You are not at home. Don’t put yourself in a position to become a victim.
- TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS. When you feel uneasy around certain people or situations there is usually a good reason for it. Trust your 6th sense, and report your apprehensions immediately.
- REPORT SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY. Problems are easier to solve if they are caught right away.
All reports and complaints are treated seriously. If Public Safety is notified of a safety hazard, an officer will respond to the location, assess the situation, and take immediate action to prevent injury and /or property damage.
If a report of a medical emergency is received, Public Safety will respond directly, and after assessing the situation, ensure the appropriate medical personnel respond to the situation. Members of the Public Safety Department receive first aid training and several members of the Department are certified by NYS as EMTs and can render assistance prior to the arrival of an ambulance.
In the case of vehicle accidents, Public Safety will respond, safeguard the accident site, gather the information necessary for the appropriate report, and will ensure that whatever other assistance is needed whether that be from the police, fire department, or ambulance also responds to the scene.
In the case of reports of any criminal activity, the Public Safety Department will assist victims and witnesses in making reports with the Nassau County Police. Public Safety in many cases will perform the initial investigation and then assist the police in whatever way they deem is appropriate. In some cases, incidents involving alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct are referred to the Dean of Students for possible discipline. In all cases involving violence, bodily harm, or other incidents of a serious nature, Public Safety will report the incident to the Nassau County Police. Public Safety will also assist and facilitate the report of such events to the police by the people directly involved if the victims and or witnesses wish to contact the police directly.

In the event that a serious crime occurs on campus that may impact the safety of the College community, Public Safety will issue a Public Safety alert via e-mail and signs will be posted at the entrances to all buildings. This is to ensure that members of the College community are aware that a situation occurred and to enable them to take appropriate actions to protect themselves. Where a reported threat is of an immediate nature, Public Safety will send alerts out via NCC Alert through the Campus Rave system.
The College Public Safety Department is here to assist you. It is a responsibility that is taken very seriously by all members of the Department.
The Director of Public Safety regularly publishes information concerning good safety habits and procedures, displays seasonably appropriate safety and public service posters throughout the campus and provides information describing Public Safety Services in the Student Orientation Survival Manual. In addition, the Director regularly provides information to the Vignette (the College newspaper) regarding safety policies and procedures, individual responsibilities, and items of current concern on campus.
Students and staff members are urged to utilize these Public Safety publications as educational opportunities to improve their overall awareness and ability to respond to matters of personal and public safety both on campus and off campus.
In the event that there is a situation on campus that presents a significant emergency or a situation that presents an immediate threat to the health or safety of persons on campus, a message will be sent via NCC Alert. NCC Alert enables fast and efficient dissemination of critical information to members of the NCC community during major emergencies. It allows the College to simultaneously send alerts through text messaging, voice mail, and e-mail to numerous devices of those members of the community who have registered for these services.
All members of the College community are strongly urged to register to receive alerts when they log into the NCC Portal. Click on the NCCAlert icon located at the Launch Pad section of the Portal. If you have any questions about this, contact the Information Center at the Plaza Level of the Tower, 516-572-7501, or the Help Desk at 516-572-0629 or email@example.com.
In the event that the report of a significant emergency or dangerous situation is received, Public Safety will respond to assess and evaluate the situation. If it is determined that there is a situation which poses a risk to the campus population, the appropriate outside agencies will be notified and the Director of Public Safety, or his designee, will without delay initiate the notification system through NCC ALERT. The notification will include the nature and location of the emergency, and provide appropriate directives to safeguard the health and safety of members of the campus community. The College is in the process of enhancing its existing public address (PA) system (located in the blue light phone system) to allow College officials to provide verbal emergency notifications and instructions over a campus-wide loudspeaker system. During an emergency, you may receive important instructions via this system. When you hear these messages, please listen carefully and follow the instructions. The Office of College Relations will disseminate information regarding the emergency to the larger community if necessary.
There are signs posted throughout campus that describe the appropriate procedures to be followed in the event of an emergency.
The above systems are tested periodically. If the system is being tested, the message you receive will indicate that fact and that no action on your part is necessary.
Drills are also held to test the College’s ability to respond appropriately to major emergencies. Several drills have been conducted for staff members throughout the year. Response is evaluated on an on-going basis.
Nassau Community College is committed to a proactive preventive approach in assuring the campus is free of alcohol and substance abuse. The College operates in compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments. To maintain an atmosphere conducive to fulfilling this mission, the policy for a Drug-Free Campus states:
“The College expressly prohibits the unlawful use, possession, manufacture, distribution or dispensation of controlled substances, which includes alcohol, in all Nassau Community College facilities or while attending or conducting College business off campus.”
No alcohol is permitted on campus without the expressed permission of the President or his designee. Consumption of alcohol is not permitted on campus by anyone under the age of 21.
Compliance with the provisions of the College’s drug and alcohol policies is a condition of attendance at the College. Violations of any rule of the Student Code of Conduct shall result in appropriate disciplinary action.
The full text of the Student Code of Conduct is available in the College Catalog.
The possession or use of firearms of any nature, dangerous weapons, fireworks or explosives on campus is strictly prohibited.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE THE VICTIM OF A SEXUAL ASSAULT
If you are the victim of a sexual assault or rape, go to a safe place and call for help. Call Public Safety, the police, a family member or a friend. It is imperative that you seek medical treatment immediately, not just for injuries incurred during the assault, but also to facilitate treatment against sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy.
- Do not change your clothing, wash or even comb your hair. Vital evidence can be lost. Leave the scene of the incident exactly as it is. Don’t clean the area or throw anything away.
- As soon as possible, you should try to write down every detail of the incident. Again, this will facilitate the investigation of the incident.

In January 2014, Nassau Community College, through a highly competitive process, has been awarded a three year $300,000 grant by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women. The grant will be used to fund a coordinated approach that will combat violence against women by building upon the current strengths of NCC’s Public Safety Department, other campus departments, and community organizations in partnership with a highly experienced social service agency – The Retreat. The grant to NCC sets forth five project goals that will be addressed by 35 discrete activities. Included among these goals are establishing and reinforcing an understanding of the variety of behaviors that are encompassed by the phrases “domestic violence,” “dating violence,” “stalking,” and “sexual assault;” creating a coordinated community response to violence against women in the area served by the grant; establishing a mandatory prevention and education program for all incoming students; and training all members of the NCC campus disciplinary/conduct board to respond effectively to allegations of domestic violence. The programs that we will establish will engage and educate students, instructors, administrators, campus safety personnel and the Athletic Department. Dr. Donna Bacon, who is currently an instructor at NCC and brings with her 18 years of experience working with Domestic Violence, will be the “Project’s Director.”
Throughout the year, the Nassau Community College Public Safety Department offers to the College Community the S.H.A.R.P. Program (Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention Training). Interested parties should contact Sergeant Keith Blum at 516-572-7801 to schedule a class. The Public Safety Department is currently engaged in getting several officers certified as instructors in R.A.D. Training (Rape Aggression Defense), and hopes to be offering this training course as well.
During the course of the academic year, many programs are offered to teach the College community how to recognize crime, prevent crime victimization, and how to generally enhance personal safety and well-being. There are several very active campus committees charged with these educational programs such as the Campus Safety Advisory Committee, and the Sexual Harassment Education Committee. Both of these groups as well as the Women’s Center are active in providing the College populous with valuable information pertaining to safety issues.
