The mission of Campus Public Safety is to provide:

  • A safe, secure, and enjoyable environment for the University Community.
  • Protection for the members of the Pacific University Community and the property of the University.

The goal is achieved in part by maintaining a highly visible department through regular patrol patterns by vehicle, bicycle, and foot. By having this high visibility, crime is deterred and responsible civil behavior is encouraged.

Services Provided
