Our staff is encouraged to take a pro-active approach to security by maintaining positive interactions with our community on a daily basis. The purpose of this philosophy is to improve the overall safety of our campus through increased involvement of all members of the Iona community in security.

Assignment to the 24-hr communications room.
Their daily performances include, but are not limited to: Investigation and documentation of incidents occurring on campus, patrol and inspection of all college buildings and facilities, enforcement of traffic and parking regulations as detailed below, assignment to resident halls, transportation of students with medical needs, report hazardous conditions and unusual occurrences, and any other activities assigned by the tour supervisor or administrator.
We are also responsible for processing all Iona College ID cards and parking permits. Our office is located in the Robert V.
