Safe Environment
The College of Biblical Studies (CBS) is committed to the safety of our students and staff. Our priority is to create a campus environment in which people are safe from physical harm, and property is secure in a manner that meets or exceeds federal, state, and local laws, as well as CBS policies that regulate these matters. It is the intent of CBS to provide a safe and secure environment for students, visitors, and others with whom we serve. Most of the specific threat procedures are listed on the Safe Environment page. CBS rents space in the Pyramids. Therefore, we are subordinate to some of the emergency policies set forth by the building, which includes fire drill activity and other general safety procedures related to the building.

The Pyramids employ s Eagle Trident Security Service for the security needs of the building. They are trained to face any threat and employ many off-duty police officers who have extensive experience in security and are prepared for any situation that may arise. Eagle Trident Security has protected clients in the central Indiana area since 1988. Eagle Trident Security and local police are the primary response agencies for all crimes and incidents on campus, including emergency assistance, investigating, and documenting incidents. Protection Plus utilizes Electronic surveillance to monitor the building and parking lots.

CBS Watchman Alert System & AMG Alerts
The CBS Watchman Alert System uses text, e-mail, and voice messages to alert CBS students and employees in the event of an emergency or urgent situation. Alert messages are sent to registered mobile phones, home phones, and e-mail addresses. CBS Watchman Alert System is fully supported by CBS.

The Pyramids utilizes AMG Alerts as their emergency alert system that can be used to rapidly communicate with tenants, staff and students in case of emergency.

Parking & Security Escort
Students should park in designated parking spaces listed on the diagram in red.

Students can call Protection Plus for an escort to their vehicles at 317-875-5055.  After hours, it will connect with a dispatcher.  Once on site, the guard will monitor the area and follow them to their cars in the patrol car.

Active Shooter Training and Drills
Training videos are offered on our website to be viewed anytime. CBS conducts scheduled drills to simulate an on-campus active shooter. These drills will not only prepare CBS staff and faculty, but will also allow the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) to familiarize themselves with the layout of our campus should they ever need to answer such a call.
