You are here

The LUPD is responsible for providing police and security services on campus and for coordinating/determining staffing needs at all events on campus such as parties, dances, rallies, lectures, dignitar visits, sporting events, etc. and including those events that are sponsored by non-university organizations.

Adequate security and crowd control are integral asspects of event planning and all event sponsors/organizers (i.e. student organizations, faculty and staff) share in the responsibility of having a safe environment for participants of the event.


LUPD has put together a POLICE/SECURITY EVENT REVIEW FORM to help determine whether a security detail is needed for your event.  Requests for Police staffing for events should be made as far in advance as possible and must be submitted on-line, at least three weeks prior to the event.  To get detailed billing information regarding your event for budgeting purposes, you must complete the form.

PLEASE NOTE:  In order to avoid billing, cancelations must be received by LUPD (72) Hours prior to the start of the requested event.  If the event is not canceled wtihin the time frame noted, a four hour minimum charge for each requested officer will be billed.  


For further assistance, during normal business hours, Monday-Friday 7:00am-3:00pm, please contact us at 610-758-4200 or email Lt. Brian Kelly at bk00@lehigh.edu.
