Dan Bennett

Director of Public Safety and Police Services



On behalf of the men and women of the Michigan Tech Department of Public Safety and Police Services, welcome to our website.

Our department is committed enhancing the quality of life for all University employees, students, and guests by providing a safe and secure environment. But we cannot do this alone and rely on your assistance and support in accomplishing our mission.

We believe this can best be accomplished through a community-oriented, problem-solving focus based on building partnerships with every student, staff, and faculty organization; group; and individual. We strive to foster such partnerships by employing an impartial, customer-service attitude that focuses on protection and prevention, and is always respectful, courteous. and professional. One way to create such an environment is to fully inform the campus community about policies regarding safety and security, crimes that have occurred on and near campus, and the programs and services that your police department provides. It is our hope that this website will be both helpful and informative.
