The goal of the Department of Public Safety is to provide a safe learning environment by working collaboratively with our campus community. This is accomplished by providing continuous campus patrol, campus shuttles, safety escorts, crime prevention programs, and parking services. Our department maintains a 24-hour communication center and uniformed public safety officers to respond to all reports of accidents, crimes, suspicious persons, hazards, and other emergencies.
