The Office of Public Safety

The Office of Public Safety provides a staff of armed officers who monitor and patrol the campus twenty-four hours a day. The primary responsibility of these officers is to protect the life and property of students, faculty, staff, and visitors. However, the Office is also responsible for enhancing students’ educational experiences by providing information sessions and workshops on safety and security that will help them lead safe, healthy, and productive lives.

All of Dillard University’s officers are licensed and certified by the Louisiana Board of Private Security Examiners and commissioned by the City of New Orleans.

 REM4 Emergency Management


Dillard University is on the leading edge of emergency management and campus safety.  They have joined with REM4 to take the University Emergency Operating Procedures and move them out of three ring binders and onto the smartphones and ipads of the University Executive team.  REM4's technology places all critical emergency operations information into the hands of the University Emergency Management team at all times.  The REM4 applications enhance the Universities ability to access critical information at any time and to alert others when needed.  Information flow to DUPD and the executive team is further enhanced with the REM4 Notifeye app.  All staff and students can "See Something, Say Something" in a discrete and confidential manner with the new REM4 Notifeye app.  To learn more about the REM4 products, visit
