We are responsible and committed to maintain an environment in which a student can excel in the classroom, on the athletic field, through civic engagement, and enjoy a vibrant social life. Achieving this requires partnerships with our faculty, staff, and most important, our students. We have created a comprehensive crime prevention program to educate the community members about threats to the safety of persons and property. This philosophy requires all of the officers in the Department to be well-versed in many facets of crime prevention
Our prevention program is utilized to minimize and eliminate criminal opportunities and to provide timely information. The Police Department encourages the University community to be responsible for ensuring the safety of themselves, their property and others. Please be vigilant and observe your surroundings. Never put yourself in danger and report suspicious activity.
The crime prevention programs offered to the community by our Department are listed on the Crime Prevention Programs page. While all of the Department’s officers are able to conduct each of these programs, certain officers have elected to obtain specialized training in certain areas. This training allows those officers with specialized training to provide the community with a program that is informative, applicable and appropriate to the needs of the group or individual requesting the program. Please use the appropriate contact person listed for each program.
To assist community members with the identification of property, in the event that it is lost or stolen, the Department has created inventory forms for students, faculty and staff to use. These forms provide the opportunity to register bicycles and record the serial numbers of high-value assets. These records are maintained by the police Department for the academic year and can be accessed if an asset is stolen or lost.
