Welcome to the Tufts University Department of Public & Environmental Safety. The development of this home page was the collective effort of many members of our staff. I am grateful for their contributions. Our department consists of several organizations responsible for safety, security and loss prevention on the three campuses of Tufts University. Among these are the Tufts University Police Department, Environmental Health & Safety, Fire Safety and Tufts Emergency Medical Services (TEMS). In addition, Public Safety Administrative Services encompasses parking services, shuttle services, photo ID cards and access systems. As you review our home page, I would appreciate hearing from you on any suggestions to improve this presentation.
