University Police

We are committed to providing effective policing and public safety services to the university and surrounding areas 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Our goal is not just respond to crime, but prevent it. We encourage students, faculty and staff to watch the emergency preparedness video and campus safety videos for helpful tips on preventing and responding to crimes. You can also stay up to speed on emergency situations and campus closures by registering for emergency text alerts. Safety starts with awareness.

Reporting Crime Statistics

Towson University is proud to consistently have the lowest number of part I crimes per capita in the University System of Maryland. We publish updated crime statistics, track overall crime trends (PDF) and provide access to reports and reporting forms in accordance with the Clery Act.

Crime Alerts

Crime Alerts are posted to keep the campus community aware of recent crimes. Review the alerts and take appropriate steps to maintain your personal safety. Becoming actively involved in crime prevention is the best way to avoid becoming a victim.
