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.
