The main campus is patrolled by armed, sworn Police Officers commissioned by the Pennsylvania Municipal Police Officers Education & Training Commission (MPOETC). Their authority is contained in Pennsylvania statutes 53 P.S. § 2162 - 71 P.S. § 646.1 and the Pennsylvania Rules of Criminal Procedure, Chapter 1, Part A, Rule 103.

The University City Campus is patrolled by trained security officers who are employed by an outside agency.  They work in collaboration with building officials, the Lincoln University Department of Public Safety and the Philadelphia Police Department. The Coatesville campus will be patrolled by the Coatesville Police Department.

The Department of Public Safety consists of a Director/Chief of Police, two (2) Assistant Directors/Captains, three (3) Sergeants, three (3) Corporals, thirteen (13) Police Officers and six (6) Residence Hall Security Officers. Our department also features traditional and non-traditional police duties, Crime Prevention, Fire Safety, a K-9 Unit and Bike Patrol.

The Department of Public Safety embraces an open door policy. Every member of the Public Safety staff is readily available to meet with any member of the University community to discuss a problem or concern they may have or to simply serve as an advisor on campus issues related to safety on campus. Please feel free to offer comments and suggestions to our attention.

On behalf of the entire department, remember our motto,
