Saint Louis University

More than 80 public safety officers patrol all Saint Louis University property located in St. Louis City:  on foot, bicycles, golf carts, T-3s, and in DPS squad cars.   

Some of the many ways DPS patrol officers make campus safe:

  • Regularly checking buildings, garages and outdoor parking lots
  • Patrolling the outer edges of campus, including the Grand Avenue bus stops
  • Opening and closing campus offices and classrooms 
  • Responding to and investigating criminal incidents
  • Reporting safety and security hazards

Patrols are designed to allow for greater interaction between officers and students, faculty, staff and visitors, which keeps with the department's community-oriented policing focus.
