Who We Are and What We Do
The Peabody Campus Police Department is the recognized law enforcement agency of the Peabody Campus and provides a full range of security services to the campus community 24 hours a day. Based on a community-oriented approach to law enforcement, we continuously interact with other Peabody offices, the Baltimore Police Department, and many other private security agencies in the area. As members of Baltimore's Downtown Public Safety Coalition, we work to reduce the threat of off-campus crime to faculty, staff, students and guests of Peabody.
Headed by a director, the department consists of 12 full-time uniformed special police officers- commissioned by the State of Maryland with full arrest powers on all Institute property-and 11 casual/part time security officers who assist with special events and other activities. The special police officers, are unarmed, trained professionals, with years of practical law enforcement experience. All of the officers undergo annual training sessions in areas such as Cultural Diversity, Sexual Harassment, Rape Crisis, First Aid, CPR, and public relations communication.
