Information and Assistance
The Campus Safety Office is located in the main lobby of the College Center and someone is available at all times to render assistance. Reports may be made directly to the office, through the information booth or an officer may be dispatched to your location. Campus Safety Officers will provide assistance and will also assist you in reporting the incident to the Herkimer Police Department if it is deemed necessary.
If you have been the victim of sexual assault, you may report the incident to Campus Safety or to one of the College Counselors. The College Counselors can be reached at 315-866-0300 x8284, or in the McLaughlin College Center, room 261. Your well-being is their primary concern. They will treat you with respect, sensitivity and will keep your concerns in strict confidence.
The Counseling staff at HCCC is committed to assisting students with their adjustments to college life. Trained counselors are available for confidential individual screening appointments with all students. We encourage you to become familiar with their service and visit anytime you need someone to talk to.
Blue Light Emergency Phones
Outdoor emergency phones are located in various locations on campus. They are marked by BLUE LIGHTS above the phone. Pushing the emergency button inside the emergency telephone box immediately connects you to 911.
HCCC Student Nighttime Auxiliary Program
HCCC Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol (SNAP) is designed to provide additional eyes and ears for the Campus Safety Department, as well as provide safe escorts to students, faculty and staff walking about the main campus after dark. College work-study and criminal justice students are available to provide students, faculty, staff and community members with a walking escort on-campus. The service is available from 5:00 P.M. until 10:00 P.M., Monday through Thursday. SNAP members also observe and report incidents that may require attention of an officer via portable radio directly. They do NOT initiate any type of security/safety actions aside from their observations/reports. Members of the campus community are encouraged to use SNAP during operational hours. To request a SNAP escort, call Campus Safety at x8616 or 315-866-0300 x8616 from your phone. Hours and days of service may change as needed.
