University Police

Our mission is to provide quality police, security, and related public safety services to the Bentley community, helping ensure our campus remains a safe and pleasant place in which to live work and study.

The men and women of University Police are dedicated to maintaining a safe campus atmosphere for all individuals. However, we can only achieve a truly safe campus through the cooperation of all students, faculty, and staff. Each of us must assume personal responsibility by reporting and taking precautions to prevent ourselves from being victimized.

While the reported crime at Bentley is comparatively low, we must all keep in mind that crime does exist. By working together and embracing a community policing philosophy, we can be successful in minimizing the incidents of crime on our campus.
