The University of Delaware Police Department is committed to the highest standards of professionalism, with a deep respect for individual rights and the dignity of everyone. We condemn the actions of any police officers whose behavior undermines and betrays the most fundamental principles that law enforcement officers are sworn to uphold. Our primary mission is to work in collaboration with everyone to prevent crime, enhance safety, and build trust with our community to foster an environment where our students, faculty, staff and visitors feel welcome and safe. We understand that the key building blocks to ensuring that we fulfill our mission are Accountability, Transparency, Training, Community Outreach, Campus Partnerships, and Educational Mission.
