Department of Public Safety

The College’s nationally accredited Department of Public Safety is committed to maintaining a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors. Our public safety personnel provide crime prevention, event management and police services 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It is important to remember at all times that the College of Charleston is located in an urban setting, and that the campus blends seamlessly with the city neighborhoods around it. While reported crime at the College is low, we must all take responsibility for our own personal safety by practicing good crime-prevention habits.

The information on our website will help you learn what to do in an emergency, show you how to avoid becoming the victim of a crime, and help you to understand your role and responsibilities as a member of the College of Charleston community.
