Vehicle Jump Start

DPS will respond to any campus parking lot, parking garage, and surrounding streets and will perform  vehicle jump starts for SLU motorists with one of our department’s portable battery jumper packs.


Like the vehicle jump start service, DPS will respond to any campus owned property and surrounding streets and will assist SLU motorists in gaining access inside their vehicles with one of our lockout kits.

Bike Registration and Free U-locks 

DPS will provide a free bike lock (U Lock) to those that bring their bicycles to our office and register them in our system. Registering your bicycle with us allows DPS to return any lost and recovered bikes to their original owner.

Lost and Found

DPS logs all items that are turned in or found. These items can be found online or you can call our non-emergency number at 314-977-2376. DPS will hold onto each item for 60 days.
