Point Campus Safety fosters a safe and secure environment for the University community through professional services in law enforcement, security, crime prevention/education, and traffic/parking.
Part of achieving and maintaining a safe campus is the willingness of every member of the community to be alert to potential problems. Reporting potential problems to appropriate authorities is an important aspect of our common life on this campus. Point provides around-the-clock security personnel whose responsibility is to have a very public presence on campus at all times.
In accordance with the Campus Security Act, criminal activity on campus is reported each year through material available at registration. This material will also be available upon request throughout the year.
Educational information concerning security, crime prevention and safety on and off campus will be made available through the Student Development Office. The vice president for student development will sponsor at least one crime prevention and safety seminar each year. Criminal activity will be reported to local police agencies, and appropriate follow-up with these agencies will be conducted.

Point also uses a text-messaging system to alert faculty, staff and students to emergencies on campus. For more information, visit our campus alert system page.
