Security at Bishop’s

The responsibility of Campus Security is to ensure the safety and security of everyone. Campus Security maintains a good working relationship with the Service de Police de la Région de Sherbrooke, who are responsible for investigating crimes and criminal activities on campus.

All buildings, including residences, are checked on a daily basis by Security Officers on foot patrols. The campus exterior is also patrolled on foot and with a Security Vehicle. Any suspicious persons and/or vehicles are checked.

In all situations, the University relies on the good will and good judgment of all members of the Bishop’s community.  Students, staff and faculty are encouraged to read the Emergency Situation Policy & Guidelines document and to understand their roles and responsibilities.
