Public Safety

Fausto Ramirez, Director of Public SafetyHello and welcome new Faculty to Lehman College. My name is Fausto Ramirez, Director of Public Safety. The Department of Public Safety is dedicated to the maintenance of a campus environment that supports academic excellence, independent thought, and cultural collaboration. Inherent in that mission is the strong belief that maintenance of a safe environment where all community members feel secure, welcome, and respected is the foundation on which a learning community can best achieve its ideals. The department is committed to being a cornerstone of that foundation by providing security and service to the community in a professional and responsive manner.

A few important things you will need to remember:
