Safety Escort

The Medical University Department of Public Safety is committed to ensuring a safe environment for all students, employees and visitors at the University. In an effort to encourage personal safety, the campus escort service program was initiated. It provides personal safety escorts twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

Please take advantage of this service. Call 792-2261 and provide the following information to the dispatcher:

  • Your Name
  • Current Location
  • Baggage (if any)
  • Destination
  • Physical description of yourself

The Safety Escort service provides escorts around the University Campus and the surrounding area, normally within two blocks of the Campus. Special requests will be honored on a case by case basis. Any escort beyond the two block area must be approved by the campus commander or the shift supervisor.

You will need to be able to get in and out of a vehicle on your own power.

We are unable to provide escorts for wheelchair bound individuals. If someone is unable to get in and out of the vehicle, we can refer you elsewhere. Please understand that space is limited and equipment can not be transported in our vehicles.

This program, staffed by our patrol officers, serves the entire Medical University community. Calls for an escort are dispatched immediately, however, if you experience a delay in response time it may be due to a high volume of calls for service.

This program utilizes Foot, Bicycle, and Vehicle Patrol Officers. On campus escorts may be accomplished by means other than a vehicle.  

If you have small children requiring a child safety seat, you will need to have a seat available. If you do not have a child seat, one will be provided by Public Safety. State law requires any child 4 years of age or under must be secured properly in a child restraint system.
