Central administration consists of Terri A. Stewart, director and chief of public safety and emergency management; David J. Dray, assistant director and deputy chief for patrol operations; Laura Durling, assistant director for administrative services; and Tim Ryan, assistant director for environmental health and safety. They are responsible for the overall development and implementation of public safety and emergency management programs.
The staff members of the Office of Public Safety are guided by the following ethical principles:
- We will practice the core values of integrity, respect, fairness, and honesty.
- We will keep confidential sensitive information obtained during the exercise of our activities, except when required by law or where overriding health and safety considerations are present.
- We will treat all persons in a professional and fair manner without discrimination based on race, sex, religion, or sexual preference.
- We will act responsibly to uphold the integrity of our professions.
Communications for the Office of Public Safety is the responsibility of our professionally trained communications specialists and community service officers. They handle emergency calls (911), nonemergency calls (274-3333), and walk-in traffic to our office -- located on the north side of campus, just off Coddington Road (see building No. 27 on the campus map). They also dispatch for the Office of Physical Plant during nonbusiness hours.
Telephone, two-way radio, and computer contact are maintained with outside emergency medical services, law enforcement and firefighting agencies, and the College's physical plant office. Assistance and support from these groups are solicited when necessary. If you're not sure whom to call about a particular emergency, health, or safety situation, call the Office of Public Safety and we'll put you in touch with those who can help.
