The Department of Public Safety welcomes you to Texas Woman's University.

 Our primary mission in the Department of Public Safety (DPS) is to develop and maintain a safe and secure environment for the university community. We strive to meet this goal with professionally trained staff and through cooperation of all students, faculty and staff.

Our combined efforts have resulted in TWU having one of the lowest rates of reported crime in the nation when compared to universities of similar size. Crime, however, does occur, and this web site provides information about the University DPS, basic DPS services, selected university policies and university crime and fire statistics in the hope that this information will be helpful to you and that it will promote a genuine feeling of "community" within the university.
