Public Safety and Transportation


Message from the Associate Vice President


Gene Palma

Adelphi University has long been committed to maintaining a comprehensive safety and crime prevention program for all members of the Adelphi community. With the assistance of our student, faculty and staff, and through the cooperative efforts of the Garden City community and local law enforcement agencies, this program has contributed to what we believe is an excellent record of safety.

This website is designed to inform you of the extensive Public Safety services performed by the University, and to assure you that while Garden City remains one of the safest neighborhoods on Long Island, and Adelphi University one of the safest campuses in the country, we remain as determined as ever to be vigilant about concerns for safety.

Working together as a community, we will continue to ensure a safe environment for everyone at Adelphi University.

Gene Palma
Associate Vice President for Public Safety and Campus Transportation
