Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At the Division of Public Safety and Security (DPSS), our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is not only about equal opportunity and fair treatment–it also means we do our job better every day. We are safer when we work together and we are more secure when we have an enriched appreciation of each other. We are only at our best when everyone in our community feels welcomed and safe.
