The Office is responsible for security on the Wagner College campus and consists of a Director, Assistant Director, Supervisors, Patrol Officers and a Secretary. All Public Safety Officers are certified by the New York State. Some officers have prior law enforcement experience. The College also provides ongoing training for patrol officers in the area of patrol procedures, emergency response, report writing, etc.
The Office works very closely with the New York City Police Department and other law enforcement agencies. Possession of firearms or any weapons on campus is strictly prohibited. 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.
