Public Safety

Greetings Butler Community:

Emergency preparedness is an important part of our daily campus routine, knowing how to respond to critical incidents is important to sustain Butler University and mitigate injury or loss of life. How we respond to any crisis, large or small, will have a lasting image for our institution.

Please take the time to consult this document and participate in training that the Department of Public Safety will be offering each summer to ensure our preparedness and response. For more information on this document and training, please feel free to contact me directly at (317) 940-9982 or via email at

Thank you for taking the effort to be prepared and ensuring that Butler University continues to be a safe place for everyone.
