Greetings from the Interim Chief of Police

Welcome to the University of Colorado Colorado Springs Department of Public Safety Home Page!

The Department of Public Safety is comprised of Police Operations, Communications, Environmental Health and Safety, and Risk Management.

The UCCS DPS was created as a result of authority legislated to the Regents of the University by the General Assembly of the State of Colorado. This authority includes the responsibility to protect the lives and property of everyone on or around university property.

I am pleased that the University of Colorado has provided this department the opportunity to utilize this method of technology to provide information on the Internet. We strive to utilize the latest tools and technology to help us communicate with the University community, allowing us to bridge communication gaps and forge new alliances through means such as the Internet, Facebook and Twitter.

As UCCS continues to grow and expand, the DPS is committed to ensuring a safe environment for those who work, live, study, and play within our wonderful community. We encourage you to explore the many facets of our DPS website, and should you find a page or link that does not work, please Email me directly. We also welcome your feedback, comments and/or questions.

Thank you for visiting the UCCS Department of Public Safety's Website!
