Campus Safety Report
University of Holy Cross
Security Information Report
The safety and security of all members of the campus community are of primary concern at UHC. The security management team at the University consists of representatives from the security guard service, maintenance department, Offices of Student Affairs and Business Affairs. The primary objective of this committee is to provide a safe and healthy environment that enhances the campus learning experience and compliments the University's educational mission. Together, this team is responsible for security, safety, and emergency response at the University. They are also responsible for providing support services tailored to meet the needs of the UHC community. Some of these services include:
- Register vehicles and provide parking registration for students, faculty and staff.
- Supply and process photo identification cards for members of the campus community.
- Provide security of the physical plant and parking lots with foot and vehicle security patrols.
- Inspect building for safety compliance and test and maintain all fire prevention equipment
Crimes and emergencies should be reported to the security guard or to the Office of Student Affairs at thetime of the occurrence. The Office maintains a close working relationship with all appropriate lawenforcement agencies and elements of the criminal justice system. Reports in the form of an Incident Report will be filed at the time of the occurrence. Our follow-up activities strive to identify and prosecute criminals, recover stolen property, and encourage restitution, when possible. A crime, which occurs off-campus, should be reported to the police department having legal jurisdiction of that area.
