Nightly Campus Patrols
Student Auxiliary Safety Patrol (SASP) members patrol the Ithaca College campus in pairs between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. They check all exterior doors of residential halls to make sure the doors are secured. Members act as eyes and ears for the patrol staff. They also respond to various calls to assist public safety officers.
A great benefit to having SASP perform such nightly patrols is the members' visibility. Their presence helps make the campus safer, increasing the sense of security and well-being throughout the campus.
Between the hours of 9:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m., SASP walking patrols conduct on-campus escorts for the campus community. Anyone desiring an escort can call the Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management (Public Safety) at 274-3333 or contact a dispatcher on a blue-light phone. During SASP patrol hours, members will assist. During all other hours, a public safety officer will assist.
Various organizations on campus, such as the Bureau of Concerts and the athletic department, contract SASP members to be present at campus events. Duties at such events include crowd control, traffic details, and security. SASP is highly visible during such events, thus providing an increased sense of safety.
