Our Purpose

Our team of security professionals works to maintain campus safety and the security of the entire Carleton community, students, staff, faculty, and campus visitors. We patrol the College campus 24/7/365 and are prepared to deliver a full range of emergency response and public safety services. These include: crime prevention, crime and incident reporting, investigations, medical and fire emergencies, and responding to all other situations requiring assistance. We are committed to doing our work in a personal and respectful manner.


In case of emergency, where ambulance, police, or fire personnel are required, call 911 immediately! In other cases where assistance is needed, call Security Services at x4444, or (507) 222-4444. Carleton provides outdoor emergency telephones at several locations across campus. Security Services provides information on what to do in a variety of emergencies.
