Crime Prevention Unit

At the ASU Police Department, campus safety and crime prevention is a function of every department employee. All police officers are capable of discussing proven crime prevention techniques as they interface with community members daily and work with them to resolve their concerns.  Formally, the department's Crime Prevention Unit coordinates educational and experiential programs throughout the year to inform students, faculty and staff of security policies, procedures and practices.





The police department’s mission is "to enhance the quality of life by providing a safe and secure environment through professional and proactive law enforcement services in partnership with the University community."

Programs designed around this mission can be requested by departments, classes, and student organizations. These programs are free and include topics such as personal safety, preventing sexual assault, residence hall security, office security, bicycle safety, home security and workplace violence. More than 50 programs are available for students, faculty and staff.
