Safety & Security

While The Department of Public Safety is responsible for safety and security on campus, we cannot do it alone. Safety at Princeton is a partnership between our officers and our community. The University has a solid commitment to give the community a voice regarding their safety with a true sense of security and belonging. The Princeton Department of Public Safety consists of over 110 professionally trained personnel who patrol the campus 24 hours a day to protect the rights, safety and security of members of the University community. In this section, you will find ample resources and information about how to stay safe on campus, in the surrounding community, and in real-life situations.
