Historical Note

The Department of Public Safety began around 1939 as the Campus Police, although the first patrol officer was hired in October 1928. The department has had several names including the Department of Police and Public Safety and the University Police Department. The police units reported directly to the President; however, since 1980, the Department of Public Safety has reported to the Vice President for Finance and Operations and Treasurer.
