Public Safety Home
Welcome to Public Safety
Although no institution today can guarantee security and safety, High Point University intends to be as safe as any institution of higher education. Safety and security are enhanced by a professional security force that has recently been tripled in staff, a student patrol, a campus escort service, off-duty High Point police officers, a well-lit campus, plentiful blue security towers and yellow emergency call boxes, closed circuit television and a robust card access system that control residence hall doors 24-hour a day.
University Security Officers
Well vetted and trained, uniformed security officers are in place to maintain the safety and security of persons and property. Officers investigate and report criminal activity and student misconduct. Report copies are filed with the security director plus distributed to selected campus administrators, including the VP of Student Life and when appropriate or necessary, the High Point police department.
Off-Duty Police Officers
In order to increase the safety and security of persons and property, High Point University employs off-duty police officers to patrol the campus during strategically selected hours.
The Security Department maintains a crimestoppers site for anonymously reporting suspicious activity on campus. You may report suspicious activity or simply a suggestion or comment on our Crimestoppers website.
For crimes or suspicious activity in progress, please call the 24/7 security communications center or SECOM at 841-9111.
The mission of the High Point University Security, Transportation and Safety/Emergency Management departments is to care for and serve all who enter upon the lands of the University while preserving their property and University assets.
