I. Policy

The Catholic University of America maintains an emergency response plan designed to address the issues of preparation, response and recovery for all emergencies. During university emergencies the Department of Public Safety provides for the safety of students, staff, faculty and visitors and the security of property. Emergency Support Functions (ESFs)have been identified to accomplish the mission of handling emergencies in a manner consistent with the District Response Plan. The department manages and coordinates law enforcement activities and provides personnel, equipment, and security in support of the university ESFs. Each ESF is managed by a professional level staff member. Mitigation, preparedness and training are ongoing activities.
