Additional Safety and Security Measures


Depending on the nature of the emergency, the following steps may be implemented if deemed appropriate:

  1. The Police Department will contact other law enforcement agencies such as the Farmville Police Department, Prince Edward County Sheriff's Department, Longwood University Police Department, and Virginia Department of State Police.  
  2. The Police Department will control campus entrances and block entries or exits, if circumstances warrant and sufficient resources exist. 
  3. The Police Department will restrict access to the Student Gun Locker located in the Police Department. 

Please note: Hampden-Sydney College has open access and is geographically integrated in the surrounding community.  Under any circumstances, it will be difficult-and perhaps impossible-to completely control access to and from the College by on-campus or off-campus persons.
