Butler University places a high priority on keeping its campus
safe for students, employees and visitors. The university police
department offers educational and awareness programs on crime
prevention and emergency response for students and staff. We also
continually make safety enhancements to campus grounds and develop
precautionary measures that touch every aspect of campus life.
Our police patrol supervisors and
police officers are appointed under the statutes of the State of
Indiana with full police power and are available 24 hours a
day throughout the year. They are graduates of the Indiana Law
Enforcement Academy. The security officers assist sworn officers in
patrolling the campus on foot, locking and unlocking buildings, and
conducting security and safety surveys of the physical campus.
Please note that our website includes
detailed statistics that account for past criminal incidents at
Butler. Our department has responsibility not only for the main
campus, but also for the residents that neighbor our institution.
Our crime statistics reflect those areas also.
If you have any concerns or suggestions about security or law
enforcement at Butler, please feel free to telephone my office at
(317) 940-9396 or send me email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
