Crime Prevention Programs

Awareness & Orientation Programs

Crime Prevention programs on personal safety and theft prevention are sponsored by the Department of Public Safety at various campuses throughout the year. Public safety personnel facilitate programs for student, parent, faculty, and new employee orientations, student organizations as well as orientation programs for Brookdale Resident Advisers (RA's) and new residents. Programs provide individuals with a variety of educational strategies and tips on how to protect themselves from sexual assault, theft, internet dating, identity theft and other crimes. Fire safety is included in all orientation programs.

In addition to the college website, crime prevention pamphlets that include various safety tips and encourage the reporting of crime on campus are prepared and distributed periodically to students. Whenever possible, public safety invites NYPD units specializing in sex crimes and crime prevention to present programs to members of the Hunter community.

Additionally, students may sign up for CUNY Alert.  CUNY Alert is a new emergency notification system that will enable the University's campuses to advise students, faculty and staff of an emergency and provide timely information to protect lives and minimize campus disruption. Depending upon the severity of the incident, CUNY Alert messages can range from specific instructions to general warnings. These notifications will be sent to members of the CUNY community who have signed up for CUNY Alert. Messages can be received via cell phone (text and/or voice), land line telephone and e-mail. You must "opt in" to receive alerts, and you can choose your preferred format or formats to receive the messages.
