Public Safety + Campus Security

Educational institutions face a wide spectrum of potential safety and security issues, ranging from structural and environmental hazards to on-campus law enforcement activity and security preparedness. Our lawyers assist clients in addressing the legal and regulatory aspects of safety and security concerns on a wide spectrum of matters, including the following: 

  • campus threat assessment and state and federal crime reporting compliance
  • coordination with local law enforcement-from investigation through prosecution-of on-campus crime activity
  • construction safety procedures and advisory manuals
  • construction operations in and around occupied spaces
  • facility-wide or project-specific health and safety policies, as well as health and safety enforcement
  • management of regulated building materials (e.g. asbestos, lead paint)
  • environmental compliance and response efforts (e.g. permitting standards, spill response and site remediation)
  • legal (standard of care) evaluations of campus safety and continuity of operation plans
  • litigation related to civil rights claims against campus police
