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 institution.
