DPS takes a service-oriented, defensive approach to safety. Our chief goal isn’t to investigate or solve crimes; it’s to stop them from happening.

We offer preventative programs and opportunities to our community so you can learn safe practices. By educating ourselves, we can cut down on crime around the university.
