While the Oregon State University community and the City of Corvallis are considered friendly and relatively safe communities, neither is immune to the realities of the world. A safe and secure environment is made possible through each member of the Oregon State University community's involvement in crime prevention and sensible behavior.

In order to have a safe and successful Oregon State University experience, each person must take responsibility to recognize one's own vulnerability to crime and reduce risks through preventive action and cooperation with Oregon State Police, Corvallis Police Department, Benton County Sheriff's Office, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, and the Department of Public Safety.

Partnership Oregon State Police, Corvallis Police Department, Benton County Sheriff's Office, the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, & Oregon State University's Department of Public Safety work in partnership to provide a safe campus and community for students, faculty, staff, and visitors of Oregon State University; to facilitate the educational, research and community service goals; and to provide these services with the highest standards of professionalism.

The agencies are all dedicated to fostering partnerships and mutual trust with our diverse community. We use time-tested methods and seek innovative problem-solving strategies to promote a safer and caring environment. We accept our responsibility as professionals to provide the highest standard of criminal justice and public safety services while respecting the rights and dignity of the individual.

The "Student Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act" is the law that requires all institutions of higher education to release campus crime statistics and security policies to students. This annual report can be found on the OSU State Police/Public Safety Web Page, or call the Department of Public Safety for a printed copy.
