Our Mission

McGill University's Campus Public Safety Department works with the community to promote a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors through education, prevention and response.

The members of the Campus Public Safety Department: Security Services, Fire Prevention, Parking and Transportation Services and Emergency Management and Preparedness, are committed to respecting the needs and interests of the university community, and to being diligent in the protection of both persons and property.

As such, we encourage our partners in the community to assume their individual and collective responsibilities to make McGill University a place that is safe, and to provide an open environment that fosters learning and education.


A Message from the Director, Campus Public Safety

Ensuring the safety of the McGill community is our ultimate and continuous goal.  The team of professionals that make up the Campus Public Safety department work tirelessly to address the University’s ever-changing safety needs while encouraging all our community members to join the collective effort to promote a culture of safety across both our campuses.    

As we look forward to the future, we invite you to partner with us in creating a safe McGill. If you have suggestions on what we can do to better assist you, or ideas on how we can collaborate, please do not hesitate to contact us.
