Student Security Patrol

The Purdue Student Security Patrol (PSSP) assists the entire police department and campus community in a variety of ways. Some of these support details include athletic events, Elliott Hall of Music events, Parking and Transportation Services and the Safe Walk Program, which is a group of trained students who offer safe walks to students and staff.

This group also provides extra observation in parking garages and other areas of the West Lafayette campus. While on duty, student patrol members carry two-way radios to report vandalism or suspicious activities to the police.

How to Pre-apply
