Safety Programs and Services
Our officers are available to speak to campus organizations about our alcohol policy. For an appointment, call 781.891.2201.
CPR and first aid training are provided upon request for any group within the community. Though not commonly associated with crime or criminal activity on campus, the program teaches self-sufficiency and concern for others. Instructors are members of the University Police Department, and are properly trained and certified by the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association.
There are both interior and exterior emergency phones linking Bentley University Police and members of the Bentley community.
We work with the Health and Wellness Center to provide transportation to Newton-Wellesley Urgent Care Center in Waltham, and in emergencies, to Newton-Wellesley Hospital in Newton. Transport to the emergency room is at the request of the Center for Health and Wellness or when emergency care is needed, and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We also transport resident students to and from class when they are temporarily restricted due to an injury.
We provide operation identification kits to help you protect your valuables against theft. This program is available to you whether you live on campus or not. Operation Identification membership stickers are available in each kit.
There are several officers certified to teach the Rape Aggression Defense System (RAD), a means of prevention and self-defense designed specifically for women.
In cooperation with student organizations, we deliver many presentations on rape awareness, education and prevention.
Throughout the academic year, we offer crime prevention programs at residence halls during floor meetings to discuss security and safety issues relevant to on-campus living. These efforts augment programs we provide during summer Orientations.
University police personnel will provide a personal safety escort from one point on campus to another; these escorts are usually walking escorts. To request one, call our business line at 781.891.2201 and inform the dispatcher that you would like a personal safety escort. A police officer, security officer or student patrol worker will be dispatched as soon as possible to assist you. This service is provided 24 hours per day.
