Crime Prevention and Safety Awareness Programs

Safe Ride Program (currently unavailable): Call Campus Safety for Assistance

The Safe Ride Program, in partnership with Main Line Taxi ensures the safe return to campus in the event that a student is stranded off campus. Any BMC student who is stranded off campus simply contacts Campus Safety at 610-526-7911 and request a transport. The Campus Safety Communications Officer/dispatcher will contact Main Line Taxi and authorize the the transport. When the student is safely back on campus a voucher will be completed and the cost of the cab fare will be charged to the students account.

Dorm Safety Meetings/Hangouts

There are many dorm safety meetings.hangouts during the academic year (formerly called Safe-Teas) where Campus Safety is invited by the HA’s and or DLT’s to discuss safety issues on campus or within the dormitory. Students are strongly encouraged to come together to participate and contribute since this is an open forum type discussion. Campus Safety Officers exchange ideas and information including safety awareness topics to students, such as sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, alcohol awareness, identity theft and social media hot topics.

Forming a partnership with the students is an essential goal of the department and benefits the entire community.

Bicycle Registration

Campus Safety also offers free bicycle registration for members of the Bryn Mawr College community. Once the form is completed a decal will be placed on the bicycle, which clearly marks the bike and is a deterrent to theft. A copy of the registration form will be on file with Campus Safety and the owner will retain a copy. Bicycle registration is an important prevention tool and in the unfortunate event that the bicycle is stolen the information can be shared with police.

Self Defense Classes for Women

Campus Safety offers self defense classes to the Bryn Mawr College community. Campus Safety provides certified instructors of the R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense) Systems, which is an international program specifically designed for women. The program involves a two-fold process combining education and practical self defense techniques for women only. This system is taught at over 350 colleges and universities. The Objective is to: "Develop and enhance the options of self defense, so they may become viable considerations to the woman who is attacked."
