Promoting Safety In Our Community

About Us

The Student Auxiliary Safety Patrol (SASP) was established at Ithaca College in 1971 for the purpose of providing auxiliary support to the College's Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management (Public Safety). Its employees work as an additional level of security for the College community, providing closer student feedback and improving relations between Public Safety and the college community.

SASP is a group of 25 to 30 students who patrol the campus nightly from 9:00p.m. to 1:00a.m. on the weeknights and 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. on the weekends throughout the entire academic year (including orientation). These students also operate the campus escort program, perform blue-light phone checks, emergency phone checks, staff the Public Safety Satellite Office, and assist with special events such as commencement and move-in day. SASP members are trained to be alert to the safety needs of the Ithaca College community as they patrol the residence halls, academic buildings, parking lots, and other areas of campus.  SASP members maintain radio contact with Public Safety and can request officer assistance whenever needed.
