 About the Boston University Police Department
According to the Boston University Police Department, it “is a full-time, professional law enforcement agency that also provides a wide variety of public services, including alarms, emergency medical assistance, investigating suspicious circumstances, and responding to and investigating criminal matters. Patrols are conducted throughout the Boston University area twenty-four hours a day and span an area that includes over 132 acres of University-owned property and surrounding streets. Emergency response time is generally under three minutes to any location on campus. 


Boston University has 50 state-trained and deputized police officers. All new officers are required to complete a rigorous 22-week police academy. Every officer must also complete at least forty hours of in-service training, reviewing a number of subjects including law updates, defensives tactics, and CPR and first-aid certifications. Officers must also demonstrate safety and proficiency with issued equipment three times a year. Officers receive specialized training courses offered by the International Association of Chiefs of Police and other professional organizations. All Boston University police officers are empowered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to enforce criminal law and to make arrests not only on the campus grounds but also in the area surrounding the University. The Boston University Police Department has an excellent record for arrest and prosecution of criminal offenders. Our work has been formally recognized by the Boston Police Commissioner and the Suffolk County District Attorney's office. Nationally, the department was recognized in 1996 when it received the Jeanne Clery National Safe Campus Award.”
