About DPSS

The Division of Public Safety and Security (DPSS) is responsible for all police and security functions related to the University's Ann Arbor campus, including the University of Michigan Police Department, the Hospital and Health System Security Services, the Housing Security and Safety Services, the University Security Services, and other campus-wide security functions.

DPSS was created in October 2012 to unify security functions that previously were embedded and reporting within different University vice presidential areas. The unification is intended to develop a more integrated approach to safety and security, to improve efficacy and consistency in incident response protocols and procedures, and to continue to build partnerships that support campus safety across the insitution.

DPSS FEATURE: Stalking Information

Stalking is a prevalent crime, including on university campuses...and most victims know their stalkers.

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 46 percent of stalking victims experience at least one unwanted contact per week and nearly three in four victims know their offender. Stalking impacts 6.6-7.5 million people a year in the U.S., where 1 in 7 women and 1 in 18 men are targeted.

Some stalking behaviors include:

  • repeated and unwanted contact by phone, text, or social media;
  • following a person or showing up unexpectedly at locations; or
  • leaving gifts for their target.

These types of behaviors are unacceptable and illegal; therefore they should be taken seriously and reported.

If you or someone you know is being stalked, seek help as soon as possible by contacting the U-M Division of Public Safety and Security (DPSS) at (734)763-1131 or 911 in an emergency.
