The Crime Prevention (CP) unit coordinates all of the Cornell Police safety and security outreach programs. It is staffed with two full-time crime prevention officers engaged in many service initiatives to promote safety throughout the Cornell community.

 Outreach programs to both students and staff include safety and security forums about subjects such as active shooter awareness, workplace violence, personal safety concerns, and alcohol awareness.  The unit also provides oversight for the child safety-seat installation program for the campus community. 

The CP unit maintains the emergency Blue Light System on campus and ensures compliance with campus policy regarding alarm system installation, training, and scheduled testing.  The Crime Prevention unit reviews requests for physical key duplication.  The CP unit is involved in the environmental design of new and renovated facilities on campus to ensure the continuity of function, security, and safety for the facility users.  This includes performing annual lighting surveys and physical security reviews.
