Message from the Chief of Public Safety


On behalf of the Office of Public Safety let me welcome you to St. John's College Annapolis. St. John's places a high priority on the personal wellbeing of all students, faculty, staff and visitors. In support of this commitment, the Office of Public Safety is dedicated to providing a protective campus environment through the delivery of quality security services and prevention programs.

St. John's College is located in an easily accessible open urban area, and the college community is subject to the same hazards as are the citizens of Annapolis. It is not prudent to consider ourselves safe in a city where public safety, crime, vandalism and the loss of property are daily problems. The Office of Public Safety can only be effective in maintaining safety and security on campus if it has the cooperation and assistance of all members of the campus community. It is in your own interest to be aware of security problems, and to aid us in crime prevention. We encourage you to join us in our efforts to provide a safe and sound environment for you. It is therefore imperative to immediately report all criminal offenses to the St. John's Office of Public Safety, the Assistant Dean, or the Director of Student Services.

On the Crime Awareness page, you will find a description of the security practices and procedures at St. John's College and the crime statistics for the past three calendar years. This information also meets all compliance standards as established by the federal Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act of 1990 including the 1998 Amendments. Printed copies are available to all current students and employees. Upon request, it is also provided to any applicant for enrollment or employment.

Although each individual is ultimately responsible for his or her own personal well-being, by learning and practicing basic safety and security precautions, each individual will help make St. John's College a safer place to live and to learn. This information is intended to provide a general description of policies of SJCA Office of Public Safety. It is not intended to serve as a contractual agreement between the college and the recipient. Security procedures are subject to change without notice.

I wish you a safe and enjoyable visit and successful educational experience here at St. John's College, Annapolis.
