Message from the Chief

The Purdue University Calumet Police Department is committed to providing a safe and secure campus environment through effective community policing and quality public safety services to the university community and its surrounding area.  Our police officers work diligently in collaboration with the entire campus community to provide a safe environment for students, faculty, staff and community members to live, work and learn.

Purdue University Calumet police personnel are an integral part of every aspect of campus life.  The department’s mission is not merely to enforce the law, but also to educate students, faculty, staff and the visiting public as to how, in cooperation with the police, they can be better prepared to take care of themselves and their property.  The Purdue University Calumet Police Department interacts with local residents of the surrounding Hammond community area and the local area police departments to build healthy, wholesome relationships and extensive interpersonal networks that allow them to proactively mitigate problems and implement solutions before trouble arises.
