Safety & Security
Franklin College is dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment for all members of the campus community. The security office is located in the Napolitan Student Center on the east end of the ground floor and operates 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. The department is staffed by a director and five full-time security officers.
The security staff makes regular rounds of all campus buildings and monitors all fire alarm systems via a two-way radio system. Members of the department also administer the card access systems and security camera systems on campus. The card access system allows for access to be given to different buildings on campus using a college issued identification card. An emergency text messaging system has also been put into place for use during occasions that require mass notification of the campus community.
Crime prevention presentations are made regularly, upon request, to a wide variety of student groups. Members of the campus community are encouraged to report emergencies and criminal activity to campus security and to the Franklin City Police/Fire Department by dialing 911. The non-emergency number for the campus security office is (317) 738-8888.
