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.


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.

Douglas College offers a SaferWalk program for students and employees heading to the New Westminster SkyTrain station and the Lafarge Lake-Douglas Station.

SaferWalk trips are available by request during College hours. These trips will depart from the New Westminster Security Kiosks located in the Concourse. At the Coquitlam Campus, SaferWalk trips will also depart from the Security Kiosk located in the main floor atrium building A/B and from the Security Kiosk on the 6th floor at Anvil Centre.

In addition to the SaferWalk program, security provides escorts to the parkade and surface parking lots at any time during campus hours.
