Who is responsible for campus security?

 

The Department of Public Safety is responsible for providing security and police services on our campus. It has two components: the University Police Department, which has 16 full-time police officers who have received their training under Act 120 (the Municipal Police Officers’ Education and Training Act) and their police commission from the Governor and the Secretary of Education of Pennsylvania; and the University Safety Department, which is staffed by an Environmental Health and Safety Manager. University police officers also are required to attend annual update training under PA Act 180.

All full-time employees of the Department of Public Safety, in addition to any mandated or specialty training, also receive annual in-service training that includes CPR and first aid training.

The Department of Public Safety encourages all campus faculty, staff, students and guests to act responsibly and to report criminal activity in a timely manner to ensure a safe campus environment for everyone.

What is the enforcement authority of Public Safety personnel?

University police officers have full authority to enforce all state and federal laws, as well as any applicable university policies. The University Police Department is the police department of jurisdiction on the Shippensburg University campus. University police authority includes the power of arrest on campus property. University police officers also may initiate campus judicial board proceedings for violations of the Student Code of Conduct, as a sole process for resolution or in addition to criminal charges.
