Haverford has experienced minimal problems to date with crime on campus. Life on any college campus, however, is subject to some of the same risks and problems as life elsewhere.
Many people are concerned about safety on a college campus away from home. Haverford College understands that concern and accepts its responsibility to employ security measures to ensure that our students enjoy their years at Haverford as free as possible from any threats to their safety or well-being. Haverford College is dedicated to keeping the campus a secure and healthy place to live, work and study.
Campus Safety makes every effort to prevent crime, provides highly visible security patrols (vehicular and bike), and responds quickly to the needs of individuals on campus and in the College community as a whole. The Department works closely with the Police Departments of Haverford and Lower Merion Townships to create a safe and secure campus environment. All members of the Department receive training in first aid, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and automated external defibrillators (AED). Officers’ knowledge of law and regulations are kept current through regular in-service training, and officers also attend annual training on diversity and sexual misconduct issues—see examples of these training sessions. Campus Safety staff provide transportation to either the College Health Services – or to Bryn Mawr Hospital when Haverford’s medical facilities are closed.
