Campus Security
To address Security on Campus, our initial purpose was to compare the security information for Briarcliffe with the security information for Molloy College and Five Towns College. The first part of our research was done using each college’s website. We wanted to know, first of all, if the information was easy to find using the websites. The information needed in order to begin the research was the following; requirements to be part of the security staff, number of security men on duty and an on campus incident report. While the Briarcliffe website did not provide any information, the website for Molloy College provided the following information: (1) The Public Safety Department has a full time staff consisting of one chief, 3 tour supervisors, and 19 security officers. Officers are licensed by the State of New York and are trained, certified and registered pursuant to the New York State Security Guard Act of 1992. The Department serves the campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week year-round. Molloy Colleges’ website also provided statistics for their 2006, 2007 and 2008 for on campus criminal offences, Hate Crimes, Arrests on Campus, Disciplinary Actions and Criminal Offences. They also inform marked patrol units from the Department patrol the Campus regularly.  Five Towns website http://www.ftc.edu provides their 2009 through 2010 Campus Safety Report. Within this report there you will find the amount of Aggravated Assaults, Arsons, Burglaries, Drug Law Violations, Harassments, Hate Crimes, Illegal Weapons Possession, Larcenies, Liquor Law Violations, Motor Vehicle Thefts, Murders/Manslaughter, Robberies, Sex offenses and Vandalism though out the 2009 and 2010 school year. The information for both the Molloy and Five Towns college was clear, easy to understand and easy to find. Unlike the website for Briarcliffe. Unfortunately, the Briarcliffe College website did not provide any information on the safety policy or statistics on campus violations. We were not sure if the reason they did not have the information on the website is because Briarcliffes’ security staff is provided by a security company named “G4S”. We decided to request this information personally and written. The Briarcliffe staff referred us directly to the Security office. Unable to find someone at the office, we decided to call the security office, where I left a message on their voicemail and never received a call back. When we requested the information personally and in writing the Security personal advised us they were not at liberty to provide that information. Although we explained the information would only be used for the purpose of a school project the security guards stated again they were not at liberty to release the requested information. There are many other subjects that fall within topic of Security on Campus. Another subject we decided to do some research on is “fire drills”. A fire drill is a method of practicing the evacuation of a building for a fire or other emergency. We conducted survey asking 20 students to answer a couple of questions on their experience and their thoughts for Security on Campus. For this survey 12 out of 20 people are Males, 7 out of 20 are Females and 1 person out of 20 refused to check a gender status.
