The KUMC Medical Center Department of Public Safety has progressively served the University of Kansas Medical Center community for over 45 years. Throughout these years, we have worked hard to promote and maintain a safe campus by sustaining mutual trust and building relationships with the community we serve.

This commitment continues today in the exceptional crime prevention and education services we strive to provide. Furthermore, we embrace the importance of partnerships and working as a team to deliver world-class services to our community in a transparent and efficient manner. Along with sustaining a safe environment, building, and sustaining a culture of trust with our external and internal customers is our priority.  

I have enjoyed being part of a public safety team that supports a nationally recognized academic medical center. With a unified, highly supportive environment for education, research, health care and employment, we strive to maintain high levels of safety and security. We continue to improve our operations by actively seeking feedback and suggestions from the KUMC students, employees, and other customers.

We work with our external partners to maximize our safety profile during planning and project work for those we are sworn to serve and protect. Our success to maintain a safe and secure KUMC campus requires the cooperation, understanding and efforts of the entire KUMC community.

The collaboration of our KUMC community and public safety department makes for a very powerful team that cannot be rivaled. We do not accept failure, only success!

On behalf of our department, it is my continued pursuit to offer world-class security services to our KUMC community.
