Campus Safety: Our Mission

The primary mission of Campus Safety is to provide exceptional public safety services to ensure a safe learning environment with the cooperation of the college community and external agencies based on the values of fairness, integrity, and respect.

  • Fairness: Treat all persons impartially, with consideration, compassion, and understanding. Be equally responsive to all members of the community we serve.
  • Integrity: Commit to ethical conduct, honesty, and trustfulness in the execution of our duties.
  • Respect: Treat all persons in a dignified and courteous manner while valuing and understating their unique individual backgrounds.

Campus Safety operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Officers conduct vehicle and foot patrols of the campus. Campus Safety officers do not make arrests; we work closely with the N.H. State Police and the Concord Police Department. 

Safety and security information is regularly provided to the college community through alerts, email, posters, and brochures.

As per the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, the NHTI Annual Security and Fire Reports have been prepared by Campus Safety using statistical and other information supplied by NHTI Campus Security authorities, the Concord Police Department, and the N.H. State Police.

Get NHTI Alerts

NHTI Alerts, through Rave Mobile Safety, is an emergency notification system that sends campus safety info to students, faculty, and staff. The system sends text and voice messages should a weather closure/delay, emergency situation, or crisis occur on the NHTI campus.

NHTI students, faculty, and staff are automatically registered to receive alerts via college email and are strongly encouraged to add their cell phone, landline, or other emails to the system profile. The system’s reliability is dependent on the accuracy of the contact information.
