Campus Police

Uniformed Patrols 

The Loyola Department of Public Safety has forty-five (45) sworn officers that provide routine patrol and respond to calls for service 24 hours a day. Their primary function is the preservation and protection of life and property on the campus of Loyola University Maryland. 
To accomplish this mission our officers go through an extensive training program and many are former or retired police from neighboring agencies. The officers patrol our campus by foot, vehicle, and an IMPBA trained bike patrol. 

The Department of Public Safety provides several services as part of its uniformed patrol.  

These services include:

  • Lock out assistance for your vehicle or on campus residence
  • Jump-starts in the event your vehicle has a dead battery
  • Lost and found property (property is collected and maintained at 5104 York Road)
  • Parking enforcement
  • First Aid/CPR – all campus police officers are certified in first aid and CPR as well as in using and Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
  • Property engraving
  • Fingerprinting (Tuesday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.)

External Patrols

The Loyola Department of Public Safety has partnered with and hired, on a part-time basis, off-duty Baltimore City Police Officers.  These officers patrol outlying areas and the perimeter of the campus to add an additional layer of security and protection to our campus community.


Investigative Office

The investigative unit is comprised of two former Baltimore City Police Department detectives who will investigate incidents that occur on our campuses.  In conjunction with uniformed officers, who are trained to perform the a preliminary on scene investigation, our investigators will perform all follow up investigations, help you recover lost or stolen property if possible, and assist you with criminal/civil prosecutions including orders of protection.  Our investigators will also provide support for victims throughout the process of any subsequent criminal or Loyola judicial proceedings.

The investigative unit maintains a close relationship with other law enforcement agencies including: Baltimore City, Baltimore County, and Howard County.

To get in touch with the investigative unit please contact them at (410)-617-1128.


The training unit provides annual in-service training to all campus police officers as well as community outreach training to the campus community in areas such as crime prevention, personal safety, and active shooter preparedness.
