Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University shares the concerns of students and parents regarding safety on campus. The Prescott Campus Safety and Security Department works with students, parents, employees, and the community to provide a safe educational environment.
The Campus Safety and Security Department is located near the center of campus in Building 14, and provides safety, security, and emergency response services on campus. The office is staffed by a Dispatcher at all times, and Safety Officers patrol the residence halls, academic buildings, campus grounds, parking lots, and roads 24 hours a day year-round.
The Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Prescott Campus features 28 Blue Light Phones at locations around campus to allow students and visitors to quickly summon assistance. A general information button rings directly to the Campus Safety and Security non-emergency number, while a red button rings directly to the emergency line. Pressing the red emergency button sets off a blue light strobe that alerts bystanders that someone has called for emergency assistance while helping officers quickly locate the person needing assistance.
The university complies with the federally mandated Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Police and Campus Statistics Act and maintains a three-year compilation of annual crime statistics. A copy of the annual report submitted to the U.S. Department of Education is available in the Campus Safety and Security Office.
