Security Magazine Ranks Drexel No. 11 Nationally for Safety
Security magazine ranked Drexel University No. 11 for safety among the nation’s colleges and universities.

“Drexel’s Department of Public Safety prides itself on maintaining a safe campus environment for its students, faculty, and staff,” said Domenic Ceccanecchio, M.S., CPP, senior associate vice president for public safety. “We are committed to the highest standards of quality in promoting a safe and problem-free educational environment. We are honored to be recognized by Security magazine.”

Drexel’s Department of Public Safety takes a holistic approach to providing “best in class” preventive and protective services to the Drexel community. The department provides and administers many community-oriented services and programs, which exist to maintain a secure environment and to enhance the quality of life on the University’s campuses.

Recently Drexel established a police department. The Drexel University Police Department is composed of full-time sworn municipal police officers certified through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Municipal Police Officers Education and Training Commission (MPOETC) with law enforcement authority at Drexel University’s three Philadelphia campuses: University City Main Campus, Center City Hahnemann Campus, and Queen Lane Medical Campus.
