La Salle Security

As a matter of practice, if neighbors contact Security (215-951-1300) in regards to student occupied houses, our personnel will respond to these calls and make contact with the occupants of that house to advise them of the complaint received.  A report will be prepared by responding officers as to the complaint and a notification will be made to Community Development as well.  Neighbors also have the option of contacting police directly, if they desire to do so.

Off-Campus – The public property immediately adjacent to the University is largely public domain which is not fully controlled by the University.   That area which extends beyond the University’s perimeter is where our neighbors live, and in steadily increasing numbers, our students are choosing to reside, as well.  Again, these areas are not controlled by the University and the primary responsibility for the safety and patrol of these areas resides with the Philadelphia Police Department.  However, despite the public nature of the area, La Salle University’s Security and Safety Department does provide patrols and student escort services in the areas nearby campus (see Security and Safety Services on web site which shows a boundaries map of the areas and what services are provided).   The University also employs Allied Barton Security Services to provide bicycle patrols with the purpose of establishing safe walking corridors in the areas surrounding campus. Mobile Neighborhood Patrols are provided by the La Salle Security Department and Philadelphia Police Department (Philadelphia Police are contracted by the University).
