Personal Safety

Campus Safety & Local Police Campus Safety Officers are employed by our college to monitor activities in and around campus to ensure the safety and security of the entire Mitchell College community.  The New London Police Department is the local police force, which has criminal jurisdiction over the Mitchell College campus and the city of New London. The Department of Campus Safety maintains a fabulous relationship with the New London Police, which enhances the overall safety and security of our community. Prevention is the best way to protect yourself. Opportunity crimes (like stealing an unattended laptop) are among the most common campus crimes. Adapt the suggestions below to minimize your personal danger:

Lock your doors and windows when you leave your living space or car! By locking up, you remove opportunities for an intruder to get in easily.

Be aware of your surroundings! It’s best not to wear earbuds and focus on your phone when you walk. Not paying attention makes you a target. If you choose to wear earbuds, keep one of them out and keep the volume low enough that you can hear danger approaching

Walk with a friend at night! A person walking alone makes a better target.

Park in areas that are well-lit and patrolled! Keep in mind that street parking is often darker and less likely to be monitored by campus safety staff.

Have your keys ready! In a dangerous situation, having your keys in hand can allow you to get into your living space or car as quickly as possible.

Keep intruders out! Propped doors give easy access to people who are not well-intentioned and create an opportunity for them to commit crimes and do harm. So, close any propped doors and report them right away! Put the emergency and non-emergency numbers for campus safety into your phone! You can call campus safety to report a crime, when you notice something strange or when you feel threatened. Trust your instincts!

Stash your valuables in a safe, hidden spot! It’s best to minimize the number of valuables you bring to college. Using a small personal safe or an unexpected hiding spot (like an empty cereal box) might prevent someone from swiping something important.

Immediately report facility problems! If a window won’t close or a lock is jammed, report the problem to your residence hall staff right away!

Escorts: Campus Safety will provide escorts around the campus upon request.

Fire Safety

Know where to access and how to use fire extinguishers. Know where they are and consider purchasing one for your bedroom. P.A.S.S. Method of Fire Extinguisher Use   PULL… Pull the pin. This will also break the tamper seal. AIM… Aim low, pointing the extinguisher nozzle at the base of the fire. SQUEEZE… Squeeze the handle to release the extinguishing agent. SWEEP… Sweep from side to side at the base of the fire until it appears to be out.

Evacuate every time the fire alarm sounds. Late night alarms are inconvenient, but evacuating will save your life – and protect first responders – in a true emergency.

Be aware of the location of emergency exits. If smoke is in the hallway, could you evacuate? Count the number of doors to a fire exit in a residence hall and make sure you know the location of secondary exits in off-campus residences.

Make sure smoke alarms are functional. Smoke alarms should be tested twice a year. In off-campus residences, there should be one inside every bedroom, outside sleeping areas and on every level (including the basement). Any batteries should be replaced annually.

Refer to the Student Handbook for guidance on what is and what is not allowed in your dorm room!!!
