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.

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.


In the event a crime occurs on our campus, our investigative unit, comprised of two former detectives, will investigate these incidents.  They will also assist the campus community in obtaining court documents/records.  


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. If you would like more information on community outreach training please contact Maj. Rudy Dawson at rdawson@loyola.edu.
