Safety and Security Campus Report

It is the purpose of the Safety & Security Campus Report to inform the University Community about campus security policies/procedures and provide information on police/security support services and programs. These services have been developed to encourage an environment supportive of education, research, and special activities.  The department encourages all members of the community to follow the suggestions in this booklet, as it will greatly reduce the risk of victimization. Safety and security are personal and shared responsibilities. Effective prevention and reduction of crime require the community's help, support and cooperation.
