The Department of Public Safety event management standard was developed in conjunction with the University's Events Management team. This plan is now in place for any and all events that are held on University property.
The factors considered in determining Public Safety needs include (but are not limited to):
- anticipated attendance
- target audience
- safety and security of the particular venue
- promotion of the event
- history of the performing artist or event
Public safety will almost always be present when alcohol is served and at events that are open to the public (i.e. students from area universities, attendees from the general public, etc.).
Still not sure? Just ask us. Contact Captain Douglas Lauver or Lieutenant Corey Jones at 570-577-3333.
If you would like to host an event on University property and you need to use the services of Public Safety, outside security, or parking personnel, please complete an Event Management Agency Request form.
- Requests should be submitted 21 working days prior to any event, whenever possible.
- Due to the fact that only those officers employed by Bucknell University and area police have jurisdiction over events occurring on Bucknell property, event sponsors may not outsource security officers. All arrangements will be coordinated through Public Safety.
