The Kingsborough Public Safety Department is your partner in campus safety.  Our team of officers is available 24 hours a day providing a welcoming environment for the college community.  The department offers educational programs for the prevention of sexual assault, active shooter training along with other crime prevention training. 


We offer various safety alerts communication systems available to the college community.  You can sign up for CUNY Alert and receive either text message, email or voice message of emergencies on campus.  We also have a Public Address system used to communicate with the college during emergency situations.  Throughout the hallways, corridors and restrooms you can contact Public Safety by using one of the security pull boxes.  These devices can be activated in the event of an emergency by pulling the lever. Any intentional false alarm will be severely dealt with since it endangers the safety of the community.  Two-way emergency assistance alarms are located in stairwells and elevators.  These devices allow you to communicate with the Public Safety officer at central command. 


There are Public Safety Officers at the entry booths to provide surveillance, control access and offer assistance to the college and visitors. The Main Gate Security Booth is manned 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.

Public Safety Officers maintain building patrols on a 24 hour basis.
