Crime Prevention Programs
The Delta State University Police Department has an active crime prevention program dedicated to reducing criminal opportunities. We encourage members of the campus community to take responsibility for their own safety and security, as well as that of others. UPD has crime prevention programs available for all students, staff, and faculty. Some of the topics include personal safety and property security, alcohol and DUI awareness, drug abuse awareness, fire safety, and sexual assault/date rape prevention.
