Who's responsible for campus safety?
All member of the Moravian community are expected to contribute to the safety of themselves and others.
Administratively, campus security is the primary responsibility of the Department of Campus Safety, overseen by the director of campus safety who is responsible to the College's vice president for student affairs and dean of students. The department is staffed by eight commissioned police officers with police powers, trained under Acts 120 and 235, and two full-time non-commissioned security officers. All officers undergo regular in-service training.
The Department of Campus Safety derives its authority from Pennsylvania P.L. 1063, No. 271, Section 501 (22 Pa. C.S.A., Section 501) of November 15, 1972. The department patrols all property owned by Moravian College, and its jurisdiction extends to all adjoining roadways. The department works closely with the Pennsylvania State Police and the fire and police departments of the City of Bethlehem, with which it is in instant communication.
The Department of Campus Safety is staffed 24 hours a day. Information and emergency telephone numbers are posted on every campus telephone. In addition to the police and security officers, the department is staffed by a secretary trained as a dispatcher and five civilian dispatchers who are in immediate radio communication with officers on patrol.
Student resident advisors are available on each residence-hall floor. Investigations of incidents are coordinated by the Department of Campus Safety and the Office of Student Affairs. Disciplinary action is coordinated by the Office of Student Affairs.
