The safety and well-being of UI students, employees and the public is the principal mission of the Department of Public Safety and Security.
In an effort to put more focus on campus safety, to improve collaboration, and to continuously improve campus safety and security processes, in 2012 the University of Idaho implemented a modified organizational structure, merging Emergency Management and Security Services, Risk Management, and Environmental Health and Safety - creating the Department of Public Safety and Security.
Public Safety and Security Organizational Chart
The new organization will enable improved professional relationships and opportunities for collaboration.
In the event of an emergency, our personnel, expertise and resources are available to assist in the management and response of the incident. Legal and regulatory demands often overlap different areas requiring coordination among these programs. Issues related to infrastructure, research activities, occupant protection and emergency response are elements of institutional safety that demand a well-coordinated effort by these programs.
