Safety Patrol Extension
Drexel has contracted with University City District (UCD) to extend the safety patrol area around the Drexel campus and into Mantua and West Powelton. UCD has added 12 new security ambassadors who patrol the expanded community for more than 750 hours per week.
The Department of Public Safety has expanded Drexel’s security technology infrastructure around the perimeter of campus, as a way of improving safety and security for the campus and community alike. Six closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras and emergency telephones were installed in the community, and serve as strong crime deterrents. Other safety initiatives include new emergency telephones and on- and off-campus lighting.
