  • Lake Erie College President
  • Vice President for Student Affairs
  • Security Supervisor
  • Four full-time officers

The men and women who lead the department of Safety and Security come from many different backgrounds, including military and law enforcement. These officers work closely with the City of Painesville Police Department and other Lake County agencies. The security force conducts foot and vehicle patrols of the campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The department of Safety and Security is charged by the College administration with enforcing College policies and regulations and with cooperating with State and Municipal authorities. When special events are held on campus and circumstances dictate, additional security is added through the use of off-duty City of Painesville Police officers. Our officers inspect all campus buildings on a regular basis for fire, safety and health hazards.
