Welcome to the UMass Dartmouth Department of Public Safety web site.

‌Here in Public Safety, our main objective is to provide safety and security through a commitment to excellence and professionalism in a community policing environment. We believe that community policing is marked by strong interpersonal relationships, safety education resources, and helpful, highly visible and capable officers.

Our department is comprised of well-trained law enforcement professionals dedicated to the prevention of crime, the tempering of conflict, the identification and solution of community problems, and the forging of solid partnerships with our students, faculty, staff, and neighbors. You can help us accomplish our mission by engaging in open dialogue, highlighting community relations issues, and generating support for programming that ensures public safety and cultivates mutual respect and collaboration.
