Pratt Institute Safety and Security
The Pratt Institute Safety and Security Department provides 24-hour-a-day protection to the campus. Security Officers are charged with the enforcement of Pratt Institute Rules and Regulations. They are staff employees and are responsible for a full range of services, including preparation of crime and condition reports, response to emergencies, conducting fire drills, and any other situation requiring security assistance.
Security Officers are not Police Officers. They have the same arrest powers as any other private citizen. They use a portable two way radio communication system that keeps them in touch with a main control center. The Main Control Center has instant communications with all city emergency departments. The security department is proud of maintaining an excellent working relationship with all the local police and emergency service units. These specialized groups will respond to all emergencies on campus. Every Pratt Security Officer is certified by the State of New York. This certification requires that they submit to an exhaustive background investigation as well as participating in a continuing rigorous in-service training program.
