The MSM Department of Public Safety is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for faculty, staff, students and visitors where security is balanced with freedom of movement, and individual rights are balanced with community needs.
The Department of Public Safety strives to achieve this mission through a community friendly approach that enhances safety through the visibility of police and security personnel, preventive patrols, 24-hour accessibility, positive conflict resolution, and crime prevention and awareness programs. The department enforces school policies, and established Federal and State Laws in support of the school’s mission; and collaborates with local law enforcement and community organizations in fulfilling its mission.
The success of this mission depends upon a partnership, built on mutual respect and responsibility, between Public Safety personnel, and the diverse population of faculty, staff, students, and visitors that constitute the MSM community.
The Department of Public Safety is comprised of the Morehouse School of Medicine Police Department, Security Services, Parking Deck Management and Emergency Preparedness.
