Security

Keep it safe.

The safety and security of students, faculty, staff and visitors is of the greatest importance at Kendall. Our campus security measures include:

  • 16 digital-recording security cameras located in high traffic areas
  • Uniformed security guard stationed in the Atrium
  • Regular patrols of all interior floors
  • Regular patrols of building exterior
  • Card-only access to third floor studio
  • 24-hour response to building alarms
  • After-hours building lock-up and alarm

Security Staff

The college utilizes the services of Advanced Security, a part of US Security Associates, a nationwide firm that was founded in 1954. All uniformed security guards carry radios, have CPR and AED training, and have been trained in the emergency response protocol.

If a student encounters an emergency of any type or degree, call 911 and/or the Front Desk at 451-2787 (0 from internal phones) to alert the Emergency Management Team, which is trained to respond to internal crises.

Meet the security staff.
