Patrol Areas

UPC Patrol Area

DPS patrols the area surrounding USC’s University Park Campus (on the map in red) 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.

HSC Patrol Area

At the Health Sciences Campus, DPS maintains two distinct boundaries:

  • Red: 24-hour patrol zone
  • Blue: A larger zone where DPS responds to any calls for assistance, 24 hours a day.

Patrol Area Versus Clery Geography

DPS’s patrol area, which includes a 2.5 mile radius of USC-owned property as well as public and private spaces, differs from Clery geography. DPS monitors this larger geographic area to ensure community safety; Clery geography is used specifically for federal crime reporting and only includes USC-owned property and designated adjacent property and city streets.
