Campus Safety

It is the mission of the Safety and Security Department to make Garrett College as safe and secure as possible by providing a variety of services to aid in creating and maintaining a peaceful learning environment.

Our department is staffed 24/7 by trained security officers ready to assist you. Patrols of campus buildings and grounds are completed throughout each shift to look out for hazards, suspicious behavior, or violations of campus policy or local and state law.

We, as a department, strive to provide the college community with outstanding customer service while balancing the enforcement of the policies and procedures that we are charged to uphold.

Campus Security may be contacted 24/7 by calling or texting 240-321-5799, emailing, or visiting the main office located in room 414 in the student center.
