Public Safety

On behalf of the dedicated and committed men and women of your Lincoln University Department of Public Safety, I welcome you to our website. We are proud and honored to serve as the protectors of this great institution. The Department of Public Safety is here to help make your time on campus pleasant. Whether your business here is as an undergraduate student, graduate student, faculty member, staff member, campus visitor,  parent, alumni, athletics fan, or for any other reason, we are working hard to make the campus a place in which you can comfortably and safely live, work, learn or recreate.

Our police and security officers patrol the campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They provide any safety related services needed on campus. Our police officers are fully certified law enforcement officers and strive to offer the utmost professional service when dealing with the community. As a member of our campus community, we remind you that it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the University’s rules, regulations and laws.

As Director of this great organization, I deeply appreciate the support and confidence that has been extended to me by the President, Vice Presidents and the Lincoln University community. My goal is to assemble a strong team of officers that complement the university’s environment and to do everything in our powers to ensure that you have an enjoyable experience while here at Lincoln University.  

I ask you to join me in thanking our dedicated workforce for what they have done in the past and by supporting them now and into the future. They truly deserve this support as they go about the business of protecting and serving our community.

Recognizing our motto, “Safety is Everyone’s Responsibility. Get Involved!” we ask that you join our efforts in keeping Lincoln University safe. Yes, we can Deputize YOU!
