2020 Campus Safety & Fire Safety Reports Available

University Police, Student Patrol Shuttle for Safe Rides.

This announcement serves as official notification of the publication of the annual Campus Safety Report and Fire Safety Report at SUNY Brockport.

SUNY Brockport’s 2020 Campus Safety Report is available online, required by federal law (Clery Act), and contains policy statements, crime statistics, and information on how to report a crime. The policy statements address college policies, procedures, and programs concerning safety and security, for example, policies for responding to emergency situations and sexual offenses. Three years’ worth of statistics are included for certain types of crimes that were reported to have occurred on campus, in or on off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the college, on public property owned or controlled by the college, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to the campus.

While the report is available online, you may also request a paper copy from the Office of the Vice President for Enrollment Management and Student Affairs by calling (585) 395-2137.

The Campus Fire Safety Report, also required by the Clery Act, is published as a separate document and includes a guide to on-campus student residence fire safety policies and requirements and a description of the on-campus student residence fire safety conditions and fire history.

Safety and security cameras exist in various locations on campus, such as at the entryways of residence halls. The cameras provide another layer of safety and security for the SUNY Brockport community, just as Blue Light Phones, Emergency Voice Notification System, and RAVE Alerting systems do. Please note that the cameras are not continuously monitored by the University Police (UP) department.

Eagle Guardian is a safety app for students. This app allows students to rapidly provide information to Brockport’s UP during an emergency. By building a personal profile, students’ information can be immediately accessed by UP dispatchers, if ever necessary. Eagle Guardian can also provide UP with GPS coordinates from students’ phones (if available), which can decrease response time and allow first responders to locate students, including those who do not know their location. Visit the Eagle Guardian App Webpage for more information on this app, and instructions on how to download it.

The college also has a Personal Safety Committee, which provides an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students to bring personal safety concerns forward for the college to address. If you are interested in being a member of the Personal Safety Committee contact Karen Logsdon at klogsdon@brockport.edu.

Please note that the most up-to-date college policies are found on the College-Wide Policy Webpage.

Safety & Crime Prevention Tips from University Police.

Although we enjoy a generally safe environment on campus and within the Village of Brockport, no area is totally immune from crime. Therefore, precautions should always be taken to protect yourself and your property.

  • We recommend that you do not walk alone, especially after dark; always try to walk in a group or with a friend.
    • The college offers a Safe Ride program, which is a campus escort service available by calling 585-395-SAFE (7233) in order to request a safe ride on campus. The College also offers walking escorts anywhere on campus, by calling 585-395-2226.
  • In you are in the Village, consider using the “Eagle Run” shuttle service. The current shuttle schedule may be viewed online.
  • Know the locations of campus “Blue-Light” telephones. Each phone is a direct line to the University Police and may prove to be invaluable in the event of an emergency when seconds count. View a map of “Blue Light” locations online.
  • Always close and LOCK your door when you are sleeping or leaving your residence, even if only for a few minutes. Do not prop open doors at any time. This applies whether you live on-campus or off.
  • LOCK your vehicle every time you park it and secure all valuables out of sight.
  • Protect your identity – safeguard your credit card numbers, PIN’s, social security number, address, date of birth, etc. Give this information only to persons whom you know to be authorized.
  • Participate in Community Policing Programs held by University Police, which has an emphasis on crime prevention and deterrence, personal safety education, and service to the college community.
  • On-campus, call University Police at (585) 395-2222; off-campus, call 9-1-1. Be sure to program these numbers into your cell phone!
  • Download the RAVE Guardian APP to allow for timely alerts and emergency notifications.
  • Remember that alcohol and other drugs adversely affect judgment and behavior and their use is frequently related to incidents of sexual assault.
  • The Sex Offender Registry is linked on the University Police departments website.
  • Follow University Police on Social Media through their Facebook and Instagram accounts.
