The mission of the Public Safety Department is to promote a safe and secure environment in a minimally intrusive manner that strives to protect and respect the rights and dignity of all individuals. The protection of our students, faculty, staff and guests, along with our premises and property, is central to the achievement of the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy’s (CUNY SPH) educational, research and cultural mission. Public Safety is committed to providing a comprehensive and progressive program of security, public safety, crime prevention, emergency response, fire safety and other related services. CUNY SPH is proud of its safety record and our officers are dedicated to maintaining a safe and secure environment while adhering to the highest standards of professionalism, integrity and ethical conduct. A truly safe campus can only be achieved through the cooperation of all its students, faculty, staff, faculty and guests. The potential for crime does exist and each of us should assume personal responsibility for our safety by taking precautions to prevent ourselves from becoming victims of crime.
