PHILADELPHIA -- The University of Pennsylvania Division of Public Safety’s Annual Report, capturing a year of Public Safety and its activities, is now available online.

Public Safety is made up of 176 personnel, 116 of whom are sworn police officers, who enhance the quality of life, safety and security in the Penn community and West Philadelphia. 

The Annual Report is helpful in understanding how Public Safety works closely with city, state and federal agencies; its partnership with Allied Barton, ADT Advanced Integration, the University City District and other schools in the area; and its role in the community. 

It outlines the Penn Patrol Zone, which extends from 30th Street to 43rd Street and from Market Street to Baltimore Avenue.  The report also explains the Division’s training and diversity policies, lists personnel demographics and showcases its community outreach efforts as well as its sustainability practices.

The report highlights the Share-the-Road Campaign, Campus Fire Safety & Emergency Preparedness Day, DPS’s free self-defense courses, emergency and safety drills, open houses, new technological developments and the many additional services Public Safety provides, including walking escorts, vehicle-lock-out assists and “jump starts.”
