Student Patrollers work in conjunction with uniformed Campus Police staff to provide a more secure campus by acting as "eyes and ears." Patrollers conduct foot a bicycle patrols in teams of two, at night, in all types of weather conditions. Other assignments include providing security at the School of Law and the Alumni Healthful Living Center as needed. Patrollers assist with traffic control and security during special events such as college fairs, political debates, and concerts. They also help monitor the closed-circuit surveillance cameras that are positioned throughout campus. Examples of what patrollers respond to and report include disturbances, maintenance problems, unsecured buildings, medical emergencies, and suspicious activities.
Past Student Patrollers have obtained employment with agencies such as the NYPD, Hampden County (MA) Sheriff's Dept., Falmouth (MA) Police Dept, Hampden (MA) Police Dept, Eastfield Mall (Springfield) Security, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the Western New England University Police Department.
