Public Safety Services and Training
The Public Safety Department provides a variety of services and training to the campus community.
Learn how to administer CPR and how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) during the four-hour CPR and AED Instruction class. Offered to students, faculty, and staff, the class is held various times during the semester. Notifications about upcoming training courses are shared via email, the College newsletter, and in the Observer.
The Rape Aggression Defense System is a program of realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women. The R.A.D. System is a comprehensive, women-only course that begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and risk avoidance, while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training. R.A.D. is not a martial arts program. Our courses are taught by nationally certified R.A.D. Instructors and provide each student with a workbook/reference manual. This manual outlines the entire Physical Defense Program for reference and continuous personal growth, and is the key to our free lifetime return and practice policy for R.A.D. graduates.
The full R.A.D. Program is held on 4 course dates, and is offered free of charge. If you are interested in signing up for this class, please the R.A.D. Registration Form. To learn more about the program, click here to view an informational flyer.

Pepper Spray Registration
Certain pepper spray canisters are allowed by persons 18 years of age or older for personal self-defense purposes. Pepper spray canisters must be standard form personal use size (2.5oz or smaller). Pepper spray canisters must not be in the form of a firearm or anything resembling a firearm. Only oleoresin capsicum form pepper spray is allowable in aerosol form (no gels allowed). Anyone wishing to carry pepper spray on campus must register it, in person, with the Public Safety & Police Department prior to carrying it on their person or storing it on campus.
If pepper spray is not registered properly and is located on campus, it will be considered a dangerous weapon (under MGL 266 13J) and subject to confiscation and sanctioning.
A new registration must be submitted at the beginning of each academic year. If any of the registration information changes during the academic year, you must contact the Public Safety & Police Department with the updated information.
