Public Safety

Public Safety

We are committed to providing a safe learning environment for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Public Safety Officers patrol LaGuardia Community College buildings and the contiguous geographic perimeter, the entry gates, and the parking areas on a 24-hour basis. Public Safety Officers are sworn law enforcement/NYS Peace Officers who have the power to make arrests. The college also employs Campus Security Assistants and contractual staff and assigns them to fixed locations at different buildings. Additionally, the Public Safety Department oversees the video surveillance cameras, keys, ID system and fire alarm systems that protect various buildings. 

If requested, a member of the Public Safety staff will provide escort services to faculty, staff, or students to the number 7 train station on 33rd street as a safety measure.

We can be reached at 718-482-5555 or the emergency ext. X5555.
