Office of Safety and Security

At Bethel University, we are committed to creating a safe environment for students, faculty, and staff. Our mission is to promote public safety through education, awareness and enforcement. 

Our security officers patrol the campus 24/7/365 and are trained in first aid, CPR, and AED use. Our vision is to be the most trusted division on campus through professionalism, responsiveness and community partnerships. We have jurisdiction over the St. Paul campus in compliance with Minnesota state law, working in full cooperation with Ramsey County Sheriff's Department.  

In accordance with the Clery Act, we have provided our security policies as well as published statistics for certain crimes and fires. We have combined the relevant policies and statistics into the Annual Security and Fire Report (pdf).


Apply for a permit to park on campus, learn where to park, or appeal a parking citation.
