EscortsCampus security officers will provide personal escort services to any member of the campus community, between on-campus parking areas and buildings.
If you are in need of an escort while on campus, contact the security department by dialing extension "8444" from any campus phone (not pay phones) or 771-8444 from any other phone. Wait for the officer to answer, then tell him what you want and where you are located. A campus extension phone is located in the lobby of each building. If you have an emergency and need to contact police, fire, or EMS, you can dial 911 from any of these phones.
Lost and FoundThe Safety & Security Department maintains a campus Lost & Found program. Any found items should be brought to the security office immediately. Persons who have lost property are encouraged to check at the security office for their belongings.
Portable Engine StarterThe Safety and Security Department has purchased a portable 12 volt (rechargeable) battery starter. This unit is used in place of another vehicle, for "jump starting" a dead car battery. If you are in need of this service while on campus, contact a security officer by dialing extension "8444" from any campus phone or 771-8444 from a cell phone.
AED Unit and Medical BagThe Safety and Security Department has a fully stocked medical bag, to be used in most medical emergencies. In addition to the medical bag, the department also has an Automated External Defibrillator Unit (AED). This unit is for use by trained personnel on a person who is in cardiac arrest. Several members of the faculty, staff, and student body are certified to use the AED unit and are also certified in CPR.
Telephone-Radio InterfaceWe have made it easier to contact a security officer, by integrating the campus telephone system with the two-way radio network. You can contact security by dialing extension "8444" from any campus extension (not pay phones) or 771-8444 from any other phone. Campus phones are located in the lobby of each building. If you have an emergency and need police, fire, or EMS, you can dial 911 from any of these phones.
Computerized Incident, Ticketing, and Parking Permit DatabaseThe Safety and Security Department uses a computer software program that has modernized the preparation of incident reports. This same program allows for easy storage and access to parking ticket information, along with rapid data retrieval of campus parking permits.
Full-time Security StaffThe Safety and Security Department employs its own staff of officers. A Penn State York Security Officer is on duty any time the campus is open. These officers do not wear traditional "security uniforms", but instead are dressed in subdued clothing. Officers wear clothing with the "Penn State York Safety & Security" logo on it.
