Penn State University Fayette maintains a Department of Police Services which provides safety and security services throughout the campus. Our department consists of a Public Safety Officer, who is a sworn Police Officer certified by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and several Security Officers.
Our Public Safety Officer maintains the same authority as municipal police officer within the commonwealth. We are required to perform the same basic police training, first-aid training, and annual in service training. Also, our Security Officers provide community oriented patrols of campus, ensuring Penn State Fayette students, faculty, staff and guests remain safe and secure at all times.
In case of an emergency dial 911 or campus Police/security at 724-430-4120.
Public Safety Officer is located in the campus Room 121 in the Williams Building.
