Crime does exist at Colby. Members of the College community are rudely awakened to this reality when they find themselves victims. The comments of these victims are often the same: “I didn’t think things like this happened here!”
The responsibility for crime prevention does not rest solely with the Department of Security; it is shared by you and all the members of the College community. Your awareness is the most important factor in crime prevention. The success of prevention depends largely on your following sound security practices and recognizing and immediately reporting suspicious or criminal activity. We in the Department of Security have prepared this website to assist you in ensuring that your experience at Colby will be happy and safe.
Remember, the potential for crime does exist, but by following the suggestions outlined here you can substantially reduce the possibility of becoming a victim.
The objective of the Colby College Security Department is to provide a safe and secure environment for the Colby community. The Department of Security offers a wide variety of services to assist students, faculty, and staff members in their day-to-day living. The services are widely publicized. We ask that you familiarize yourself with the contents of this web site and all the services offered by the Department of Security. The first, and most important step in a successful safety and security program is public awareness.
