BH Security Department patrol the BH/BHSN campus and surrounding area by vehicle and on foot. They also monitor the campus with local cameras on specific buildings.
The primary goal is to provide a safe environment for the BH/BHSN campus. It is very important that no one prop a door or allow unauthorized persons into the buildings for everyone’s safety. In the event of an emergency affecting our community, BH campus security has developed partnerships with municipal, state, and federal agencies.
The security office is located on the first floor of the hospital to the right of the main elevators. The address is 267 Grant St. Bridgeport, CT. The office is open 24 hours a day, seven days per week. We encourage the students to program our numbers into their cell phones for immediate use. We also ask that you report all incidents and crimes to Campus Security and the local police.
Reporting of Accidents, Emergencies, Unusual Incidents, or Crime
In an emergency, dial 155 from any school or hospital phone to reach the Security Department immediately. There are also emergency phones (red phones) located at the tunnel gate, in the classroom area directly across from Classroom C, near the Nursing Arts Lab and at the far end of the Ridgefield Dorm. Emergency phones require no dialing and are a direct line to Security.
Injuries, unusual incidents, or crimes committed on Bridgeport Hospital property must be reported to the office of BHSN (203-384-3926) and the Security Department (203-384-3466). In the case of an injury on campus, students are referred to the Industrial Medical Center (7 a.m. to 4 p.m.) or to the Emergency Department (after 4 p.m.) where an injury report is completed and appropriate follow-up initiated.
BHSN is strongly committed to enforcing the provisions of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1990, which requires schools to publish annual specific, crime-related information. The report includes information about BHSN’s security policies and procedures, crime prevention programs and campus security statistics of the institution for the preceding academic year. A report is distributed to all students and is also available upon request.
Students can go on line to the College Navigator website regarding prior years’ statistics of arrests and criminal offenses on campus.
