Campus Safety

The safety of the campus community is the Towson University Police Department's first priority, and we are proud to boast one of the lowest per capita crime rates in the University System of Maryland.

To keep our students, faculty and staff safe, we offer a campus escort service, we operate an emergency text message notification system and we host blue light emergency phones.

Of course, campus safety starts with you, and we advise all members of the university community to review campus safety tips and to watch our safety video. 


TUPD Times

The TUPD Times is a monthly newsletter produced by the TUPD's Community Crime Reduction Unit. The newsletter contains useful information and tips on a variety of campus safety topics, including crime prevention, TUPD services and events.
