Though security officers can be found on campus—including in the libraries, at the entrances of campus, and throughout various other buildings—there doesn't seem to be much interaction between the students and officers. Students recently rallied in support of better wages and conditions for officers on campus, so there seems to be a united sense of support for those who ensure our safety on campus.
Security is likely to look into an issue if they witness an action, but if they hear about something, they will not necessarily get involved. If there is a situation, such as one that occurred where someone off the street came into the honors hall and held a professor at gunpoint, security will get involved and turn the case over to the Judicial Affairs office, if necessary. The situation will then be dealt with accordingly. Students are encouraged to have their student ID on them, particularly when entering the library. Officers do not always check, but some won’t let students into the building without their QCID. The regulations at Queens are based on the “CUNY Article XV or Rules for Maintenance of Public Order,” and violations, particularly concerning drinking and drugs, are not tolerated on campus or any other CUNY school.
