With a combined philosophy of service and prevention, the Department of Public Safety is dedicated to maintaining a safe environment conducive to learning, living and working at Marquette University. The department is staffed year-round, 24 hours a day by highly trained professionals who serve the campus and adjacent areas where students and employees reside and socialize.
The Department of Public Safety, with more than 80 professional and 100 student staff members, is committed to providing the safest environment possible in which to learn and live. To fulfill this commitment, Public Safety continuously addresses campus and community safety with new and innovative programming, educational efforts, technological advances and the best-trained campus law enforcement staff in the area. With our expansive patrol operations, on- and off-campus outreach efforts, and nationally recognized Student Safety Programs, we continue to set the standard in excellence among campus safety departments.
Campus and neighborhood safety requires a great partnership among all community members, including students, university staff and neighboring residents. These partners need to work together to achieve the goals associated with maintaining a safe and secure environment. Personal safety is enhanced by using the LIMO vans and Safety Patrol escorts, participating in the department's numerous programs, and contacting the department with questions or concerns.Learn more about the programs and services:
