About Public Safety

Public Safety has a role in the education of members of the University community by both example and by service, creating respect and goodwill within the community. It is essential that members of the community, particularly students, have confidence in Public Safety operations. The Department must be aware that the power to fulfill the safety and security functions is dependent on the approval, cooperation and respect of the University community.

Due to fluctuating crime trends, cultural and environmental changes and budgetary restrictions, the Public Safety Department continually reevaluates how it performs services to accomplish its mission in the most efficient and effective way possible.
