Saint Louis University

Security and safety awareness through education is a part of Saint Louis University's efforts to prevent crime and improve campus safety. During scheduled new student and new employee orientation programs as well as programs held throughout the school year, representatives of the Department of Public Safety and other experienced presenters address an array of safety and security topics, to include:

  • Crime prevention
  • Personal Safety
  • Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention
  • Alcohol abuse and illegal drugs
  • Active shooter response options


Representatives of DPS emphasize the responsibility of the individual for not only his or her own safety but the safety and security of others. Representatives of DPSEP are available to provide crime prevention presentations upon request.

All members of the Saint Louis University community play an important role in keeping the campus safe and are encouraged to report any criminal act, unsafe conditions, or suspicious activity to DPSEP. Students, faculty and staff should use sound judgment and take precautions to avoid becoming a victim of crime.
