Campus Safety and Transportation

Franklin Pierce University
Department of Campus Safety


Welcome to Franklin Pierce University. The university considers the safety of the students, university employees and their guests a high priority. The Campus Safety Department is on duty 24 hours a day, all year, patrolling and responding to requests for service.

The Campus Safety full time officers receive extensive training by attending a 60-hour campus safety academy within their first year of employment and certified annually in CPR and First Aid. The full time dispatchers attend a 16-hour "PowerPhone" training session. All Campus Safety Employees receive on the job and in-service training throughout the year 

The men and women of Campus Safety are committed to providing an environment that is conducive to living, learning and working, through crime awareness education, proactive patrols, investigations, communications and extensive security services, we strive to enrich and support the university's mission of education for the "Individual and Community".

We are dedicated to providing a safe community in which a student can endeavor to accomplish their personal and educational goals, however we recognize that Franklin Pierce University, like any university campus, is not crime free. Thefts from residential rooms and offices are the most commonly reported crime on any university campus and usually occurs when the occupant leaves the room unattended and open for a short time.

We understand that it takes the efforts of the entire university community to maintain a safe environment, therefore Campus Safety in conjunction with Residential Life staff encourage the students, faculty and staff to become active participants in crime prevention, by reporting suspicious activity, suspicious people and crimes that they observe.

The Campus Crime Report is prepared and distributed to inform and increase the attentiveness of the university community. I suggest that keep this booklet by your phone to assist you.
