Request Police/Security for an Event

You are here

The Lehigh University Police Department (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, rallies, lectures, dignitary visits, and sporting events, including those events that are sponsored by non-university organizations.

Adequate security and crowd control are integral aspects 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.


The Lehigh University Police Department 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 online, 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 within the time frame noted, a four hour minimum charge for each requested officer/guard will be billed.
