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.
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
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
