The Role of Public Safety

The Department of Public Safety's primary role at OHSU is to promote the safety and security of patients, employees and visitors.

To accomplish this, Officers deter crime, patrol the campus, provide an emergency response when needed, oversee the emergency telephone service, offer around the clock escort services, assist motorists and control building access.

Public Safety also issues ID badges, conducts emergency planning, offers workplace violence assessments, complies with mandated reporting requirements and ensures a safe and secure University environment for all.

In Case of Emergency

Off Campus call 503-494-4444
On Campus call 4-4444
