The mission of Campus Security is to consistently seek and find ways to promote and preserve a safe and secure environment, and to deliver quality security and community safety services in a professional and sensitive manner.
St. Scholastica employs contract security services through Burns Security Services based in the Twin Cities. The security officers provide 24-hour surveillance of the campus buildings and grounds. They make routine patrols of campus on foot and by vehicle of the campus grounds, parking lots and buildings, including the residence hall and apartment buildings. They serve as a prevention body as well as an enforcement body and provide this service to the entire St. Scholastica community. The officers are equipped with radio telephones enabling them to respond quickly to any call for assistance on campus by calling extension 6175 from any campus telephone. All officers are trained in emergency first aid and CPR.
Campus Security recognizes that a campus law enforcement agency can only operate at its maximum potential with the supportive input from the people it serves. Through a variety of services offered and through community oriented programs, we strive to meet the needs of the members of the campus community.

Residence Crime Prevention
Whether you live on or off campus, it's crucial that you take responsibility for your surrounding. The following tips can protect you from becoming a victim of violence.
Keep your door locked even when you're in your room. It's easy for others to enter your residence without you knowing, especially if your stereo or television is playing or you are in a back room.
Do not prop open exterior building doors. You are jeopardizing other's safety, as well as your own. If you see a door propped, close it.
Never sleep in an unlocked room or apartment. Do not put your name or address on key rings.
If you see a crime being committed on campus, contact Campus Security immediately at telephone extension 6175.
It's a good plan to keep personal information to yourself in many situations.
Hate/Bias-Related incidents - If someone threatens you based on your race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or other characteristics, get help right away.
