How Meredith Approaches Campus Safety

Meredith College takes seriously the need to provide a campus that is as safe as possible. 

The Campus Police Department is staffed with trained first responders 24 hours a day, and officers have full law enforcement authority on College property. Campus Police maintains a close working relationship with the Raleigh Police Department both through informal meetings and formal agreements between the departments.

Officers regularly patrol the campus to ensure a high level of physical security. They also note any safety hazards such as defective lighting, inoperative doors or locks, broken sidewalks, steps or handrails, and any other hazardous conditions.
