University Police & Public Safety

University Police & Public Safety

University Police and Public Safety is staffed with sworn police officers who complete state-mandated training requirements established for law enforcement officers and have the same legal authority as any other Municipal police officer. 

Penn State University Police & Public Safety officers work with city, county, state and federal law enforcement authorities. Agencies collaborate whenever possible on investigations and crime prevention programs to provide the best possible police services to our campus and local communities.  When a Penn State Greater Allegheny student is involved in an off-campus offense, Penn State Greater Allegheny officers may assist with the investigation in cooperation with local, state or federal law enforcement.  Penn State Greater Allegheny operates no off-campus housing or off-campus student organization facilities.  However, many students live in the neighborhoods surrounding our campus.  Responsibility for providing police services in these neighborhoods rests primarily with local, city and county police, depending on location. 

Penn State Greater Allegheny University Police and Public Safety maintains a  daily 24-hour patrol of the campus.  In addition to patrol duties, officers are assigned to investigation, crime prevention, parking and safety units.
