About Our Department

The police officers and staff of the Department of Public Safety - Campus Police are dedicated to ensuring the safety of everyone on campus, at all times. We do this through a series of educational and training programs, emergency booklets and phones throughout campus, escort services, 24-hour patrols, and emergency alerts and other notifications as needed. We also provide student ID cards and parking decals, and are here to help if your car needs a jump start or you lock yourself out of your room or vehicle. 

Our officers are sworn, warranted, armed police officers and certified First Responders, many of whom have specialized training in addition to their Police Academy and Field Officer training. All officers receive in-service training annually.

Safety is Everyone's Responsibility

Please help us make the campus as safe as possible. Always be aware of your surroundings. Should you sense a potential threat or witness suspicious behavior, call extension 5100 or 911 immediately. Here are some additional ways to keep you and others safe
