Public Safety is committed to the security of each member of the Lesley Community. With this goal in mind, the office is pleased to provide a number of services, including: routine safety patrols, emergency response, safety escorts, and personal safety alarms.
Lesley Public Safety officers patrol all campus buildings and areas continually, seven days per week. While patrolling, our officers monitor all activities, respond to alarms, inspect lighting, conduct fire watches, and maintain control of our parking lots. Our officers are equipped with two-way radio communications and stay in constant contact with the Public Safety office while on patrol.
Lesley Public Safety officers are trained to respond to all emergencies (i.e. criminal, medical, fire, etc.). It is our responsibility to maintain control of an emergency scene, administer CPR/First Aid as needed, obtain assistance from the appropriate emergency response agency and guide the response team to an emergency location.
An escort program has been established at Lesley to provide additional protection to our students, faculty and staff while they walk around campus. Public Safety officers are prepared to escort any member of the Lesley community upon request (pending availability of a Public Safety officer).
If you wish to utilize this service, please call the appropriate campus contact number. Once requested, an officer will meet you at a predetermined location and escort you to your destination. Please understand, this service is limited to campus boundaries.
The Public Safety office has personal safety alarms which may be used as an alternative to an officer escort. These alarms emit a 130 decibel signal which may scare away any potential aggressor and will draw attention to your situation. These alarms can be signed out from the Public Safety office on the Doble Campus at any time.
The Public Safety Awareness Program at Lesley is designed to keep the community informed about some of the more sensitive safety issues facing students today. Pamphlets, which define the following sensitive issues, are available to the Lesley community from the Public Safety office:
