At Westminster, we know that having a safe and secure campus enhances the student experience and promotes security in the community. We have a security staff that provides around-the-clock patrol, 365 days a year, and conducts routine checks of all buildings, dorms, and parking lots. Campus Patrol also works closely with the Salt Lake City Police Department, employing several of their officers to assist on campus.
Prevention and awareness are a two of the best approaches to ensuring a safe campus. The key to staying safe is being aware of one’s surroundings, staying informed, and being involved in the community. We promote the “see something, say something” approach to community security, and it is crucial that members of the campus community stay alert, observant, and report anything that appears to be out of place.
To make a report or to request assistance, please call Campus Patrol at 801.832.2525 or 801.694.6176 or call the Salt Lake City Police at 801.799.3000. In case of emergencies, dial 911 immediately. If you have a hearing or speech impairment and need assistance, whether an emergency or not, you can text Campus Security at 801.694.6176. For emergencies, you can also text 911.
The college makes every effort to keep our campus safe and to provide all students, employees, and guests with a positive experience while on the property. We encourage everyone to take safety seriously and do their part in staying vigilant and observant. Most crime is committed in response to an opportunity, so the best prevention is to eliminate the opportunity. The following are some tips and suggestions for staying safe.
