We are open 24/7, every day of the year. There is always someone to take your call or respond to an emergency. We handle a large volume of calls and customers, so please be patient if there is a wait.
Campus Safety sends out emergency messages via PLU Alert! (text, cellphone, email) and indoor/outdoor loudspeakers. For more information about alert levels and associate procedures please visit our Emergency Notification and Lock down Information page.

Shuttle Escorts: The service operates 4 PM to 3 AM daily. It is meant to be used for safety purposes and not for routine transportation. Unnecessary use of the service can limit its availability to other legitimate users. It is available on campus and within a perimeter of several blocks surrounding campus (116th, Pacific Ave, Tule Lake Rd, Ainsworth Ave.). See a map of our perimeter. Certain rules and restrictions apply and can be viewed here. Escorts to known parties and bars are restricted and can result in a loss of escort privileges if abused. The escort vehicles are considered an extension of PLU property and the transportation of alcohol is not allowed. Due to staffing levels, shuttle escorts may not always be available.
Walking Escorts: One of our Safety Officers will perform walking escorts on and immediately adjacent to campus 24 hours a day, all year round. Since the Safety Officers have a number of other tasks that they will be involved with, please call ahead to get an estimated time of arrival (ETA) and place your request accordingly.
Access assistance is available for pre-approved persons into academic buildings and residence halls. Please refer to the Campus Access page for more details on getting approval.
Vehicle Jump Starts: Campus Safety can provide a jump start to those community members who find themselves in need due to a dead vehicle battery in campus parking lots and on adjacent county roads.
Vehicle Unlocks: Campus Safety is unable to unlock vehicles for community members. The department is able to provide information regarding local lock out services.
Security patrol: Officers are on patrol every day of the year.
Video surveillance: Campus Safety officers monitor the campus parking lots, adjacent streets and some residence hall entrances.
Includes provision of medical aid as well as coordination of police, fire department, and EMS response.
