On behalf of the Mansfield University Police Department, I would like to welcome you to our web page. I hope you can take a moment to navigate the various informational sites and learn about our department.
The mission of our department is to work with our students and staff to keep the university a safe place to live and learn and work; to welcome visitors and ensure their stay is enjoyable; to protect life and property; and to reduce the opportunity for crimes to occur on campus.
To accomplish these goals, the department provides many services, including parking and traffic control, safety escorts, emergency assistance, criminal investigations, enforcement of Pennsylvania laws, ordinances and university regulations, to name a few. In addition, the department has the responsibility of informing the campus community of incidents that affect the safety of its members.
Awareness is key to maintaining a safe environment, and the department takes this responsibility very seriously. Through news releases, various publications, and programs, the department encourages the community to be informed.
The department is comprised of 9 commissioned officers that have all successfully completed the Pennsylvania Municipal Police Officers Training Academy. All of the officers also complete annual training to maintain their certification. It has been the tradition of the department to integrate fully into all aspects of campus life.
As the only department on campus that is staffed around the clock every day, the campus relies on the officers to provide many services. The officers, by virtue of their 24-hour presence, are an essential element of a university that is "up and running" each day of the year.
If you have any questions about Mansfield University Police, or you are interested in scheduling a program, please contact me at 104 Doane Center, (570) 662-4900, or e-mail Scott Henry.
Thank You for visiting Mansfield University.
Christine Shegan, Director of Police Services and Safety
