Safety on Campus
A meaningful residential-learning experience requires a safe campus. The Department of Public Safety is a full-service police department that is open to the campus community year round, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Public Safety officers are responsible for maintaining a safe and secure living and working environment, facility security, property protection, emergency planning and response, efficient traffic flow, parking-regulations enforcement and ensuring compliance with college regulations and Pennsylvania laws.
Successful prevention of crime occurs only with community involvement, and safety and security must be a collaborative venture. Public Safety strives to foster and encourage student-Public Safety partnerships to aid in crime prevention and to develop and maintain positive communications and mutual understanding and trust between students and Public Safety.
