Campus Security and Transportation

Public Safety Office

The university commits itself to campus safety and offers many educational programs and crime prevention services through its 24-hour Public Safety Office. Emergency call boxes and security alarms are found throughout DePaul's campuses, and an evening on-campus escort service from 6 p.m.-6 a.m. provides additional safety. DePaul Public Safety also publishes helpful safety brochures, registers bikes and offers crime prevention workshops throughout the year.

The Public Safety Office employs its own certified officers in addition to off-duty Chicago police officers. All major crimes occurring on DePaul's campuses are reported to both DePaul Public Safety and the Chicago Police Department.
