The Department of Public Safety is comprised of certified police officers and trained public safety personnel that are available 24 hours a day. Under Kansas law, police and public safety officers have jurisdiction over any properties or events that we own or operate, as well as the contiguous roadways to our campuses, and during any investigative action. They are trained and equipped to respond to and manage police, fire and emergency medical events ranging from minor vehicle accidents to critical weather and crime incidents.
The safety and security of our students, faculty, staff and visitors is the primary goal of the Public Safety Department. All community members must work cooperatively and collaboratively with one another to reduce the opportunities for crime and unsafe conditions to occur. All college community members have the responsibility to promptly report observed or suspected criminal behavior, suspicious activity, and unsafe conditions.
