In light of recent requests from members of the University community to convey information about the UPPS budget, the University has shared actual revenues and expenditures for police operations for three prior fiscal years as well as budgeted amounts for Fiscal Year 2020-21). The information below breaks out Commonwealth Campus Police Operations separately from the corresponding data for University Park.
It is important to note that UPPS is considered a single unit that provides centralized management of police and public safety operations for University Park and 22 Commonwealth Campuses. It should also be noted that UPPS does not provide police services to the Penn State College of Medicine (Hershey, Pennsylvania), Dickinson Law (Carlisle, Pennsylvania), or Penn College of Technology (Williamsport, Pennsylvania). Prior to Fiscal Year 2017-18, Commonwealth Campus police and public safety operations were provided for and managed at the campus level as separate units.
These figures only account for University Police, or police operations, and do not include budgets for other units within University Police and Public Safety, including Clery Compliance, Emergency Management, Physical Security, and Behavioral Threat Management.
