Department of Public Safety

Community Services

The goals and objectives of Community Services are to provide for the safety and security of the university, its students, faculty, staff and visitors, by conducting activities appropriate for the prevention and reduction of crime on the campus. The unit does this by working with the Uniformed Police, the Supervisory Staff, the Bureau of Investigative Services (Detectives) and the university community to establish priority crime prevention and reduction programs.

Community Services is also constantly researching new methods and ideas to make the university and the local community safe and crime free as possible. Requests and suggestions from the university community are always welcome. Community Services can be reached at:
