Safety & Security

Safety & Security

Security personnel, in conjunction with the Chancellor of Penn State Lehigh Valley, are responsible for safety and security of the campus community. Routine patrol and parking enforcement are handled by the security department.

The campus security department conducts several awareness programs throughout the year on topics such as drugs and alcohol, sexual assault, and crime prevention.

All members of the security department maintain current certification in both first aid and CPR in case of emergency.

A close-working relationship is also maintained with the Upper Saucon Township Police. The Upper Saucon Township Police conduct random mobile patrols of the campus and cooperate in the security for special events occurring on campus. Serious criminal offenses are referred to the Upper Saucon Township Police.
