Security

To ensure the safety of employees, students and contractors, trained security officers (provided under contract by Paladin Security) are on duty at both Douglas College campuses and are ready to respond to campus emergencies, requests for security, assistance and concerns and complaints reported by the campus community.

Campus security:

  • Provides authorized access to campus facilities.
  • Monitors and responds to all campus fire, intrusion and mechanical alarms.
  • Provides First Aid services to the campus community.
  • Investigates complaints, suspicious or disruptive persons, crimes in progress, criminal events.
  • Monitors Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras strategically located on campus.
  • Maintains lost and found property and responds to inquiries.
  • Provides parking enforcement.
  • Provides employee/student campus escort upon request.
  • Provides extra coverage on pre-arranged request.
  • Provides Incident Reports to College Administration.

Extra coverage

Requests for security guards for special events, departmental activities, investigation interviews or other special requirements must be pre-arranged by requesting administrators through the manager of Facilities Services.

Campus escort

Employees and students may arrange for an on-campus security escort (e.g. to vehicle in parkade/surface lot, within buildings or to perimeter of property) either by phoning Security or requesting in-person at the security kiosk.

The College also has a Threat Assessment Team that assesses, investigates and determines an appropriate level of response to reports of behaviours of potential concern and/or threats to the campus community. There's plenty more about security at the College in the links on the right.
