About Campus Police

  • The department is comprised of sworn police officers who have full powers of arrest on seminary property.

  • The Campus Police office is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays. Administrative services are available from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
