Our Commitment to You

Cecil College Public Safety works to ensure a safe environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors. Cecil College understands the concerns of students, staff and the community regarding the safety of individuals on a college campus and accepts the responsibility to employ appropriate security measures.

While all members of the community should exercise good judgment and take reasonable precautions to ensure their own security and safety, Cecil College is committed to working with the community to make our campuses safe, secure environments.

The Public Safety Department of Cecil College is responsible for protecting the property, students, staff and visitors of the College and works to provide a safe learning environment at all college sites. Cecil College employs a full-time Chief of Public Safety in addition to full-time and part-time officers. The full-time officers are sworn Maryland Special Police Officers.

Information regarding Public Safety services is available below and at the Public Safety office in Room D205 of the Technology Center on our North East campus. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.

Safety on the Modern Campus

Cecil College Public Safety encourages employees to complete ALICE Training​ and offers the same training to students on a voluntary basis. ALICE Training is a research-based, proactive approach to responding to an armed intruder which authorizes and empowers those engaged in such an event to utilize existing building infrastructure, technology, and human action to increase their chance of survival. To speak to a Public Safety Officer about ALICE Training, please call the Public Safety numbers listed above.
