Department of Public Safety Mission
The Arcadia University Department of Public Safety is responsible for providing as safe and secure an environment as reasonably possible for the members of the Arcadia University Community, its guests and visitors.
The department exists as both a service provider and enforcement unit. Our staff conducts themselves in a polite, courteous, tactful and professional manner while performing their duties. The staff in the department work with the members of our community along with local law enforcement and fire agencies to ensure compliance with Federal, state, local and University laws, rules and regulations in an effort to maintain control and to protect all members of our community, their property and the physical facilities.
The Public Safety Department has a staff of dedicated men and women ready to protect and help you. Our primary mission is the protection of life and property. We also emphasize a cooperative effort by all community members in crime and fire prevention. Our department’s mission also includes an objective to provide a safe and civil environment in which all members of the Arcadia University community can pursue academic goals in an atmosphere of safety and security. Our community’s safety cannot function effectively without the assistance of everyone who lives and works on our campus. We need everyone’s cooperation and awareness of crime and fire prevention practices.
