What Is Campus Safety?

Dominican University is served by the Dominican University Department of Campus Safety, a division of Campus Operations, which is responsible for the reporting of all campus crimes and our compliance with the Student Right-To-Know Act and the Campus Security Act. Campus Safety, located in the north end of the first floor of the parking garage, is staffed by full-time professional security personnel and is augmented by student personnel. The officers patrol the campus 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and have a central dispatch center that coordinates all emergency and non-emergency requests for service. The Campus Safety dispatch phone number is (708) 524-5999.
