The Loyola University Maryland department of public safety is comprised of over 80 sworn and civilian employees that work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to protect and serve the Loyola community. Loyola police officers have full police authority on all university property and work in close partnership with the Baltimore City Police Department in serving our community. Loyola police officers are unarmed but carry a range of medical supplies and non-lethal protective equipment for everyone's safety. In regards to our partnership with Baltimore City Police, the officers we employ on a part-time basis work mainly on our perimeters as an additional resource for Loyola and the surrounding community. Our physical patrol teams are supported by APCO certified dispatchers located in our state-of-the-art communications center, where a network of over 800 security cameras, alarm systems, and access control systems are active at all times. The safety and well-being of our community is our top priority. In fact, Loyola's campus was recently ranked the safest college campus in the State of Maryland.
Statement in Solidarity
Loyola University Maryland’s department of public safety stands with our University leadership and our colleagues across the University in opposing racism and injustice within the Loyola community and throughout our nation. We are honored to embrace our role to protect and serve our students, faculty, staff, and administrators, and we are grateful for the partnership of many across campus who support and advance our approach to community policing. As a team, we are constantly trying to improve and enhance the ways we serve our Loyola community. We recently engaged in extensive training to practice how to handle situations better where bias might play a part. We assure our community that we emphatically oppose police brutality in any form and constantly strive to be fair and just in our words, thoughts, and actions.
