Safety on Campus
At Bridgewater State University, the safety and well-being of students, faculty, and staff, are our highest priority.
The Bridgewater State University Police Department provides protection to the community 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Police Department staff work with community members to prevent crime, solve problems, and take proactive steps to make Bridgewater State University as safe as possible.
The BSUPD is prepared to deal with the same types of incidents handled by municipal police agencies in cities or towns. All BSU police officers attend municipal police academy training and have full police authority on campus and throughout the town of Bridgewater. The Department enforces state laws, including motor vehicle laws, as well as university rules and regulations.
