Connecting with u
At the Department of Public Safety (DPS), we do more than just respond to crimes once they happen. Prevention and education are just as important when it comes to keeping our community safe. That’s why we provide a comprehensive online directory of safety tips, presentations and in-person training programs. These resources are designed to empower the UM-Flint community to take a proactive approach to their own safety.
Together we are building a culture of preparedness.
Opportunities for Involvement
DPS and our community have a strong partnership because our community steps forward and donates their efforts, resources and time!
Community involvement enables events such as Touch-A-Truck, Read-With-A-Cop, and Coats-For-Kids.
Please consider continuing to support your community with your time, books, and coats throughout the year. You may drop off items to DPS at any time at 102 Hubbard Building.
Thank you for your continued investment in our community.
