Welcome to Colby. Whatever your relationship to the College, the Department of Security is eager to assist you in any way possible, whether by helping you find your way on campus or working together to make Mayflower Hill and the Colby community safer for all.
Colby and central Maine offer a quality of life that is widely appreciated. But because our location is safer than many others, it is tempting for members of our community to be complacent or careless about their safety and to assume that crime does not occur here.
Though statistically safer than many places, Colby does experience crime, and that can be a rude awakening. A comment we’ve heard from more than one victim is, “I didn’t think things like this happened here!”
The Department of Security works literally 24/7 to make Colby and its campus as safe as possible, but responsibility for crime prevention is shared by all members of the College community, including you. Your awareness is the most important factor, and our shared success preventing crime depends to a substantial degree on your following sound security practices and recognizing and immediately reporting suspicious or criminal activity.
The objective of Colby’s Security Department is to provide a safe and secure environment for the Colby community. We offer a wide variety of services to assist students, faculty, staff members, and visitors. Please use this website to familiarize yourself with those services and with safe practices you can adopt. If you have any questions, feel free to call the department and let us know how we can help.
