Campus Safety at Wagner College

Your safety and security is extremely important to us at Wagner College.  The following information is provided to share our commitment to your security and to inform you about the steps you can take to ensure a safe and secure campus. If you have witnessed a crime on campus and would like to report it anonymously, please call our Anonymous Tip Phone Line (718-420-4332) or complete our Anonymous Witness Form.  The Anonymous Tip Line/Form is not intended for crimes in progress or for emergencies. The Public Safety Office provides 24 hour-a-day patrol protection to the campus.  This includes one patrol car and one officer at the Main Gate to the campus, and other officers on foot patrol.  The Department is responsible for security only on the Wagner campus and consists of a Director, Secretary, (tour of duty) Supervisor and Patrol Officers.  All Public Safety Officers are certified by the New York State.  Some officers have prior police experience.  The College also provides ongoing training for patrol officers in the area of patrol procedures, emergency response, report writing, etc.  The Department works very closely with the New York State Police Department and other law enforcement agencies.  Patrol Officers are not armed and no one is allowed to possess a weapon on campus.  Arrests of individuals on College property are made by New York City Police with the assistance of the Public Safety Office. Upon receipt of any complaint (criminal or otherwise), an officer will respond to handle the situation as appropriate.  A follow-up investigation will be conducted for those incidents which require it.  An incident report is always written to document the event.
