Public Safety and Transportation Mission

Pride. Professionalism. Service.

sealThe mission of the Adelphi University Department of Public Safety and Transportation is to enhance the quality of life for the entire Adelphi community by maintaining a secure and open environment where the safety of all is balanced with the rights of the individual. This Department strives to accomplish its mission while adhering to its core values of Pride, Professionalism and Service to the University Community.

The success of this mission depends upon an effective working relationship between Public Safety and Transportation personnel and the diverse community at Adelphi. This includes students, staff, faculty, and visitors. Critical to this relationship is a mutual respect. Therefore, we pledge to respect the diverse needs and interests of the community we serve. We pledge to be diligent and relentless in the protection of both life and property.

In return, we ask that our partners in this community assume their individual and collective responsibilities to make Adelphi University a place that is safe from crime, fear, disorder, and to provide a civil and open environment that fosters learning.
