The top priority of the Department of Public Safety is the safety of Saint Louis University’s students, faculty, staff and visitors, along with the campus’ surrounding community. Our department offers around the clock campus patrolling, emergency response and community assistance from our dedicated officers and dispatchers.
Our officers are each armed and licensed by the St. Louis County Board of Police Commissioners, and attend year round training in courses covering topics of mental health, fair and impartial policing and emergency response.
We are fortunate to have the Department of Public Safety in the Division of Student Development within the provost’s office, as it allows us to develop meaningful relationships across the University to serve our community. I am grateful to work with a talented group of public safety professionals at Saint Louis University who are committed to serving our community in meaningful ways.”Sarah Cunningham, Ph.D., Vice President for Student Development
