Safety and Security Services

Husson’s uniformed security officers provide 24/7 campus coverage. Our staff consists of 12 full time and 6 part time Security Officers, as well as one full time officer from the Bangor Police Department. We are committed to providing our faculty, staff, students, and guests with a safe and friendly environment both on and around our campus. Statistically, Maine is one of the safest states in our nation. However, that’s not to say that crime never occurs here at Husson University. Husson, along with many other institutions of higher education is required to publish an Annual Security Report, which illustrates certain classes of crimes and fire safety statistics for our campus. We are confident that after reviewing our Annual Security Report, you will see that Husson is indeed a safe place to be. Husson University is fortunate to have experienced so few crimes, but because crimes can and do occasionally occur on our campus, we strongly encourage a collaborative approach towards safety. We truly believe that we all share a responsibility in keeping our community a safe and enjoyable place to live and visit. Husson University is committed to achieving campus safety and security for all members and visitors of our community.

Our Safety & Security department offers POMCO (Piece of Mind Company) safety button devices that can connect a student directly to our services with a push of a button. Campus Safety & Security at Husson offers a “safe walk” escort service on campus for all members of the Husson community. The security department collaborates with Student Life to offer classes such as CPR, self-defense and other safety programs.
