About PCOM's Department of Public Safety

Founded in 1899, PCOM has been located at six sites from Center City Philadelphia westward. The present location, 4170 City Avenue, has been the home of our Pennsylvania campus since 1968. In 2004, PCOM Georgia, located at 625 Old Peachtree Road in Suwanee, Georgia, was established. A third location—PCOM South Georgia in Moultrie, Georgia—opened in 2019.

Three Philadelphia healthcare centers are protected by a staff of security personnel and electronic surveillance. Staffed posts throughout each campus ensure 24-hour protection. In addition, the College conducts fire drills as part of its public safety responsibilities.

Crime and Fire Logs
