Assistant Vice President Ronnie Grice

On behalf of the men and women of the Kansas State University Division of Public Safety, I would like to welcome you to our website. Our staff strives to keep your time on campus safe and enjoyable. One of the services available to you is this webpage. Whether you need to gather information before you arrive or once you are here we want this to be of value to you.

Our officers here at Kansas State University Police Department are Commissioned and State certified by the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Commission and possess full powers of arrest by KSA 76-726. Officers continue to receive training after certification to increase their expertise and professionalism.

Our department is committed to the philosophy of community policing and strives to maintain campus partnerships to enhance the experience of students, faculty, staff and visitors. Information regarding the annual crime statistics for Kansas State University is available at www.k-state.edu/studentlife/reportsandpolicies/.  If you have any questions about the statistics please call the Office of Student Life 785-532-6432.

The Kansas State University Division of Public Safety is committed to serving the needs of the university community. When you need assistance, I will ensure you receive the same level of service you would expect from any professional public safety agency.

In order to make our campus as safe as possible, I would like to invite every member of our campus community to do their part by protecting themselves and their property. Let us work together to make Kansas State University a safe place to live, learn, and work.
