1.2 Special Duty

It is desirable and often necessary for Public Safety personnel — UI police officers as well as civilian security officers employed by DPS — to be present during University educational, social, athletic, or other special events to provide security, crowd supervision, and traffic control. The Public Safety Department provides these services for any University department or organization upon receipt of a University requisition. The requisition must state the nature of the function, the estimated number of participants, and the hours required. Organizations using these services are urged to consult with the Department of Public Safety in advance to determine how DPS may best meet their needs.
