The department has one full-time director, two full-time staff members and six part-time student officers. Staff is on duty 24 hours a day throughout the year to guard against and investigate person or property crimes, eliminate or alleviate dangerous situations, to provide escort services, investigate reports of lost property, safeguard and return found items, assist motorists with vehicle problems, issue vehicle parking permits, and enforce the parking regulations of the University.
The Public Safety Department uses an access control system to monitor and control different levels of access to buildings at various times of day. Although not a primary mission of the department, department staff will often assist students and faculty who have forgotten their keys or access cards.
As required by law, campus crime statistics are published in a brochure entitled “Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act Information” (PDF). A Daily Crime Log is also maintained in the Public Safety Office by the Director and senior officers. The log includes any crime or alleged crime that is reported to Public Safety. The log states the nature of the crime, date and time crime occurred; general location of crime, and disposition of the crime. The log is updated each day with any reported crimes or changes in dispositions. A printed copy of the past 60 days is available during normal business hours and logs older than 60 days are available within 2 business days.
