Temple University's Department of Campus Safety Services is a full service police and security organization consisting of well-trained, professional men and women, who provide safety and security services to the diverse Temple community on four campuses in the metropolitan Philadelphia area. The university is patrolled 24 hours a day by the Temple Police, who are certified law enforcement officers in the State of Pennsylvania with the same authority as the police in the municipality in which they serve. We provide safety and security from many angles that include and exceed the following: vehicle patrol, foot patrol and bike patrol. For your convenience we also have a full service operation at Center Station (1900 Watts Walk). Every member of the Temple community has easy access to the Department of Campus Safety Services.
Security officers are stationed in residence halls and various offices and buildings on all campuses. All Campus Police and Security Officers receive sensitivity training in dealing with a diverse campus community. Our department believes in partnership -- especially with the students who attend the university. Student Service Representatives are employed by the department and work in many buildings on campus. They assist administrators, faculty, staff, fellow students and visitors who enter and exit university buildings. Their friendly service and campus familiarity is a plus, in addition to the ability to work in a comfortable environment.
Our escort service," The Night Owl Shuttle " is available from dusk to dawn, seven days a week to transport members of the Temple community safely from building to building between the Health Sciences Center and Main campus. Our commitment to the university and its surrounding communities involves more than patrolling to prevent crime.
We orient, educate and serve through several different programs sponsored by our department. Some of our programs include: The R.W. Brown Community Center, Operation ID, Crime Prevention Seminars, Student Orientations and the new Temple Police Hapkido Club. Our values are Prevention, Partnership and Pride. Emergency no-fee telephones are located on all campuses and connect directly to the Campus Police. All exterior emergency telephones are yellow.
