Department Reports - Introduction

Personal safety is an important concern for everyone. The University Police/Public Safety Department at the Downstate Health Sciences University  shares this concern and accepts the responsibility for ensuring the safety of students, staff and visitors, as well as the security of state and personal property.

Our Center is located in New York City. Like other people living and working in urban areas, members of the Downstate community must take common-sense precautions to avoid becoming a crime victim. The majority of crime on campus is directed against property rather than individuals and, comparatively speaking, the incidence of all crime on campus is low.
