The Lackawanna College Public Safety Department assists students, faculty, staff and visitors in matters involving health and safety, order, information, parking, and issues impacting student quality of life throughout the college’s Scranton Campus.
Public Safety officers regulate and enforce vehicle parking regulations; conduct random rounds throughout the campus to ensure a safe environment and check compliance with college rules and regulations; identify safety concerns, maintenance problems and security risks; offer assistance to anyone on the college’s grounds; and investigate and resolve problems and complaints.
All Public Safety officers have been properly trained in the performance of their duties. Training includes Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), First Aid certification, and lethal weapons training sufficient to qualify for Pennsylvania ACT 235 certification. Many of the officers are qualified to serve as municipal police officers having completed Pennsylvania’s ACT 120 Training. In addition, they periodically attend advanced safety training courses.
