Chief's Message

On behalf of the men and women of the Endicott College Public Safety and Police Department, I welcome this opportunity to share valuable information on the programs and services offered to the community.

Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment for the students, faculty, staff, and guests of the College. Maintaining a safe campus is a responsibility that is shared by the entire community, which is why we embrace the College-wide initiative called "I see, I speak, I pledge." Working together, we can foster living and learning environments where all of us can thrive.

Thank you, 
Charles J. Femino
Chief of Police

About the Department

The Public Safety and Police Department is comprised of approximately 26 full-time and part-time personnel, 20 of which are sworn police officers. The department is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Our police officers have attended a Massachusetts state certified police academy or its equivalent as well as annual in-service training programs. Upon completion of a police academy, Endicott police officers have full law enforcement and arrest authority as special state police officers under Massachusetts General Law Chapter 22c section 63, in or upon the lands and structures owned, used, or occupied by the College. Police officers are also commissioned as deputy sheriffs thus expanding their police authority throughout Essex County.

Non-sworn public safety officers do not have sworn police powers but are an essential part of the department. These officers are also empowered by the College to uphold policy and by-laws. 

The department also oversees emergency medical response, medical escort services, fire safety and detection, crime prevention, personal safety escorts, parking enforcement, and visitor registration as well as other community policing functions.
