Message from the Director of Physical Security

The Physical Security Office is fully committed to its mission of providing a safer and more secure University. Improving to safety & security must be accomplished while maintaining a welcoming environment that is conducive to higher learning and research. While our unit is charged with directing and managing numerous initiatives to improve overall campus safety and security, the primary responsibility for Safety and Security still rests with each individual.  The record for safety and security at Penn State has been outstanding for many years, however there are no environments that are completely free from risk. Personal diligence has become a necessary part of University life and I would ask that each of you does your part in working towards our mutual goals. 

We welcome your questions, concerns, and suggestions regarding physical security at our institution.
