Lafayette College safety vehicles contain an array of equipment to better serve the Lafayette College community. Some of this equipment includes battery starter kits and lockout kits. A photo ID will be needed prior to an officer providing these services. After the calling party fills out a release of liability form, officers will assist you with jumpstarting your vehicle. If you have locked your keys in your vehicle, officers will assist you with that as well. If officers are unable to get your car started or are unable to retrieve your keys, public safety dispatch has a list of local companies who may be able to assist further.
Public Safety is able to provide lockout services for students, faculty, staff and visitors. Lockout services will only be provided to the person assigned to the space being opened, or for the person who is the owner of a vehicle being unlocked.
In order to protect the privacy and security of our community, we are unable to open a space or vehicle without the assigned person or owner present. If there is a specific need to gain entry to a residential space, the requestor should contact the office of residence life. If it is an academic space, the requester should discuss their needs with the department responsible for that area.
