Campus Safety & Security

Security Personnel - Great Bay Community College contracts its security services to provide security coverage. The college retains the right to replace any officer immediately in the event that the college is dissatisfied or has concerns about the officer's abilities. The officers are trained in basic first aid, emergency procedures, patrolling and C.P.R. Services performed include locking and unlocking classrooms, random and preventive patrols of campus, escorts, enforcement of college regulations, enforcing college parking regulations, medical emergency response, and emergency message delivery. The Security desk is located in the main lobby of all buildings.  Members of the Great Bay Community College community are urged to notify the security office immediately concerning any criminal and/or suspicious activity or emergency that occurs on campus.

Security Escorts:

  • Security Escorts: Staff, students and visitors may request walk-outs to their vehicles. We encourage a clustering of students when requesting this service. Individual walk-outs can be pre-arranged if there are extenuating circumstances.
  • Lost and Found

Safety & Security - On November 8, 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed into law federal legislation known as the Student Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act. The "Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990", mandates a description of policies related to campus security and statistics concerning specific crimes reported to campus authorities or local police agencies, be disclosed. This section is intended to inform all current and prospective students and employees of Coe College's safety and security program. It serves as a reminder that everyone can help ensure their own safety and others' by taking reasonable precautions and using a common sense approach to personal safety. 

The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act, introduced by U.S. Senator Bob Casey and House Representative Caroline Maloney, complements the Title IX Guidance by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights. The Campus SaVE Act seeks to address the violence women face on campus: the highest rates of stalking, the highest risk of nonfatal intimate partner violence, and 20-25% of female students experiencing rape or attempted rape.
