Criminal Offensives Off Campus

Policy #: 3002.8 D


The purpose of this policy is to inform the University of Detroit Mercy (UDM) community that UDM officers provide routine patrol services on University property.


This policy applies to employees, contractors, consultants, temporary help and other workers at the UDM, including all personnel affiliated with third parties.


When a University of Detroit Mercy student is involved in an off campus offense, the Detroit Police Department will be the responding police authority to assist you. The UDM Department of Public Safety works with local, state, or federal law enforcement on investigations.  The Detroit Police Department police routinely work and communicate with campus officers on serious incidents occurring on campus or in the immediate neighborhood and business areas surrounding campus.  

UDM does operate off campus housing and business facilities.  Accordingly, many graduate students and some undergraduate students live in the neighborhoods surrounding UDM campuses. The Detroit police has jurisdiction in all areas off campus.
