Security Services - General Duties

Patrols

The Safety and Security staff conduct patrols of the campus and buildings on a routine basis. Patrols ensure Acadia policies and procedures are followed and document offences. In addition they are responsible for ensuring all safety equipment is operational.

911 Monitoring

In an emergency call 911

Safety and Security has a 911 monitoring system in place on campus. All calls placed to 911 on campus (from a 585 exchange) send a signal through to the department so that we can identify the location of the call and respond to the emergency situation immediately.

Alarm Monitoring

Safety and Security has several alarm monitoring systems in place. The Security Office receives notification of fire alarms, intrusion alarms and panic button signals immediately once they are set off. Once one of these alarms is received emergency procedures will be implemented.
