We take safety seriously. Many of our campus police officers are sworn Springfield Special Police Officers who are available 24/7 and regularly patrol the residence halls.
They have the authority to conduct investigations and arrest people if necessary. In addition, we have Campus Protection Officers whose job is to ensure the campus is secure and provide extra security throughout the campus. All of our safety policies and procedures are in place to ensure you’re protected and comfortable here.
Campus police will respond to all emergencies, including police, fire, or medical ones. If you need to report a crime, here’s how to reach us:
emergency line: 413.205.3333 (ext.3333 from a campus phone)
non-emergency line: 413.205.3368 (ext.3368 from a campus phone)
These blue light emergency phones are located strategically on campus
We will immediately notify the campus community in the event of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of our students or staff. These warnings are sent through the Everbridge Campus notification/emergency system, which is the fastest and most reliable way to reach faculty, staff, and students through texts, emails, and recorded landline messages.
You can help us with safety on campus, too. If you see or hear something, report it!
Residence halls are equipped with smoke detectors, heat detectors, fire extinguishers, and alarm pull stations. They’re also monitored by an alarm reporting company that alerts both AIC police and the Springfield Fire Department simultaneously. In addition, we conduct fire drills every semester to check our systems and ensure buildings are being evacuated promptly and properly.
AIC police maintain a daily log of all any crimes reported as part of standing operation procedure. Download the 2019 report (Clery) here.
In accordance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act, we will notify appropriate law enforcement agencies within 24 hours after a student is deemed missing and we’ll also get in touch with the student’s emergency contact within the same time frame.
