Department of Public Safety.

University of Minnesota


The Public Safety Emergency Communications Center (PSECC) is a part of the University of Minnesota Department of Public Safety. The Department of Public Safety also oversees the University of Minnesota Police Department (UMPD).

The Public Safety Emergency Communications Center is a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) providing 911 services to the Twin Cities' campuses. We answer all emergency and non-emergency calls for Police, Fire, and Medical service on campus, and provide dispatching services for our internal responders.

The PSECC also provides system-wide camera monitoring and access control services.

If You See Something Say Something

People often observe behavior they feel is suspicious or unusual in nature, yet fail to report it. In today's society, we are sometimes inclined to ignore our instincts and rationalize the behavior we are seeing as normal.

If you see something you feel is suspicious taking place, we strongly encourage you to follow your instincts. Report that behavior or activity to the PSECC so appropriate personnel can be dispatched to investigate.
