The Department of Public Safety emphasizes “community policing,” which means that the department works collaboratively with the community to prevent, identify and resolve problems and causes of crime and disorder. Community policing utilizes the input and talents of all members of the community in safeguarding the campus. Foot and bike patrols are emphasized so that officers are closer to the community and can establish and maintain trust.
Students, faculty, teachers, and staff are encouraged to:
