The University Police Department is open 24 hours a day, providing police services seven days a week. The Police Department operates three shifts, working both foot patrols and vehicle patrols throughout campus. The Department operates a 24-hour Communication Unit. A communication officer receives all incoming telephone calls and coordinates all radio traffic. The communication unit dispatches Police Officers to locations on campus to answer calls for service and to personally meet with victims to make reports of crime.
The Department of Public Safety, Parking Services Unit has the responsibility of issuing parking permits, enforcing the rules and regulations for parking, coordinating the shuttle schedules for transit services and assisting patrons with questions they may have regarding parking at Southeast Missouri State University.
This Emergency Procedure Guide has been designed to provide a basic contingency manual for the University Administration in order to plan for campus emergencies. While this guide does not cover every conceivable situation, it does supply the basic administrative structure and guidelines necessary to cope with most campus emergencies.
Crime statistics are published annually and cover the previous three calendar years. The statistics include not only those crimes reported to the Department of Public Safety, but also those crimes reported to any Campus Security Authority, (i.e. Student Judicial Affairs and other University academic departments with significant responsibility for student and campus activities).
Each year, the Department of Public Safety reports activities of its three service units. The law enforcement summary includes data covering crimes, conduct violations, requests for service. The parking summary describes parking tickets and decals issued. The transit section includes bus route descriptions and ride totals. Any questions regarding data in the report should be referred to Doug Richards, Director of the Department of Public Safety.
