Who we are

Welcome to Emergency Management

The Jackson State University Department of Public Safety’s vision is to support the administrative, educational, and financial performance of the University and provide a safe and healthy campus community for faculty, staff, students, patrons, and visitors. The department’s efforts include preventive measures such as crime prevention education and enforcement (campus policing), which promote awareness and individual responsibility in an effort to prevent criminal and safety mishaps.

The Jackson State University Department of Public Safety provides safety for its faculty, staff, students, patrons, and visitors. To do this, the DPS offers an array of services:

• Full service police department staffed with police/security officers, criminal
investigators, certified dispatchers, and other support staff
• Provides routine patrol of the campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
• Responds to calls for service from the campus community
• Provides law enforcement personnel for events occurring on and off campus
