Public Safety

It is the goal of Cambridge College to provide a safe environment for students, faculty and administration. We rely on every member of the Cambridge College community to do their part towards this goal. Compliance with all city, state and federal laws is expected of all members of the learning community. Anyone who is victimized, observes or has knowledge of a criminal action should report it immediately to campus security.

In our Cambridge, Lawrence and Springfield locations, Public Safety officers greet visitors and students. While on duty, officers monitor building activities, respond to alarms, conduct fire watches, and maintain control of our parking garage and lots. Each location’s officers are equipped with emergency cellphones. In the case of an emergency please call 911 prior to calling public safety. In the Cambridge Buildings, there are red emergency phones located throughout the common areas of the buildings. These phones connect directly to a 911 Operator.

Campus Crime Reporting

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act is a federal law that requires colleges and universities to disclose annual information about campus crime. Each year Cambridge College files a report with the United States Department of Education documenting the incidences of crime on campus. See most recent report.
