USU Department of Public Safety
The mission of the University Department of Public Safety is to protect life and property and to provide the campus community with a peaceful and safe environment for the furtherance of academic and individual development.
Letter from Chief Mike Kuehn
Utah State University enjoys a remarkable reputation, offering the highest quality experience to every member of its community. It’s the goal of the Department of Public Safety to ensure a safe and secure environment exists in an effort to enhance the academic setting.
The men and women of USU Department of Public Safety are here to help you achieve the best experience possible on campus. We are highly trained and experienced public safety professionals who adhere to integrity and professionalism in everything we do. We patrol the campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and enjoy a direct line of communication to local law enforcement and members of the surrounding community. We have officers both on foot and in vehicles who can respond quickly anywhere on campus.
Our department provides the support you’ll need to thrive in the university environment. The key to staying safe here is the same as it is in every jurisdiction: stay aware and be involved. We all share the responsibility of keeping our campus safe. It is imperative that members of the campus community stay alert, observant and take an active role in reporting something that appears out of place.
Regardless of where we come from, we’re all Aggies, and it’s that mutual commitment to our university and community that will keep us safe and well on campus. Together, let’s share the responsibility to protect ourselves and our community.
I look forward to working with you,
Chief Mike Kuehn, Utah State University
