Act and the Pennsylvania College and University Security Information
Act. It is meant to be useful to you. If you have concerns, questions
or comments about the requirements of federal or state law or Penn's

Division of Public Safety
Division of Public Safety is committed to enhancing the quality
of life of the campus community, integrating the best practices
of public and private policing with state-of-the-art security technology.
Its 134 full-time employees and 227 contract employees work in four
departments: University Police, Special Services, Fire and Emergency
Services and Security Services.
University Police Department maintains police patrols 24 hours a
day, seven days a week on campus--by foot, car, motorcycle and bicycle--with
a police force of 100 sworn officers, the largest private police
force in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. University Police also
work closely with the Philadelphia Police Department as both agencies
patrol and respond in neighborhood areas west to 43rd Street, south
to Baltimore Avenue, east to 30th Street and north to Market Street.
University Police officers have full enforcement powers, including
the authority to make arrests for criminal violations. University
Police officers are authorized to carry firearms when on duty, and
they do so. Otherwise, the possession of air rifles or pistols,
firearms, ammunition, gunpowder or other dangerous articles or substances
is strictly prohibited on Penn property or at University-sponsored
events. Any exception to this rule must be approved by the Vice
President, Division of Public Safety.
Police officers have completed rigorous training prescribed by the
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania under the Municipal Police Officer's
Training Act. Once an officer has completed police academy training,
he or she participates in a Field Training Program, developed and
coordinated through the Division of Public Safety. Officers remain
in probationary status following graduation from the police academy,
and an annual in-service training is provided in accordance with
established standards for continuing professional education for
municipal police officers. The University of Pennsylvania Police
Department received national accreditation from the Commission on
Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) on March 24,
2001. The Penn Police department is the first university in the
state of Pennsylvania to receive this prestigious recognition and
one of only 46 universities and colleges nationwide to achieve this
Chief of the University Police serves as the law enforcement liaison
for the Penn police department and coordinates all relations with
city, state and federal law enforcement officials. The
Chief also serves as the community liaison for the Penn police department
and coordinates all work with neighborhood town watch organizations,
community and civic groups, and the Police Athletic League.
University Police Department maintains a full-service detective
unit headed by the department's Deputy Chief of Investigations.
Criminal incidents are assigned to a detective within the University
Police Detective unit, who is responsible for the investigation
of the crime or coordination with the Philadelphia Police Department.
If the incident involves a student who has violated policies, procedures,
codes of conduct or the law, the Penn police will advise the victim
or complainant of the option to report the incident to the Office
of Student Conduct or the responsible University office. Consistent
with legal requirements, information regarding the persons arrested
by University Police is available to the campus community.

Rape and Sexual Violence
more than 20 years, the University of Pennsylvania has proactively
addressed the issues of rape and sexual violence through firesides,
