Public Safety and Event Security

The mission of the University of Pikeville Public Safety Department is to serve the campus community with professionalism, integrity and respect. We are committed to provide a safe and secure environment for students, staff, faculty and visitors to work and learn. In an effort to fulfill that mission, the Public Safety Department is dedicated to assisting student groups, faculty and third party event organizers in producing safe and successful events on campus. Many resources are available within the Public Safety Department to assist event organizers in developing the appropriate and necessary safety and security measures for a wide range of events.

The University of Pikeville Public Safety Department may require certain levels of safety and security at an event based on analysis of several factors including but not limited to:
  • Event type (festival, concert, sporting event, student organization event, speaker, etc.)
  • Projected attendance
  • Location of event
  • Access level (public event, ticketed event, invitation only, etc.)
  • Health and safety concerns
  • Parking, transportation or traffic plans
  • Existing or planned security measures
  • Number of university staff that will be present
  • Other events taking place on campus
