The Officers of the Plymouth State University Police Department welcome you to campus!

The University Police Department provides policing services 24 hours a day, 7-days a week. We are staffed with certified police officers authorized to provide services throughout both communities of Plymouth and Holderness.

The University Police are the primary responders to criminal matters and security needs on our Plymouth and Holderness campus locations.  We are also responsible for the apprehension and prosecution of criminal offenders on the campus of Plymouth State University. Policing needs that occur off campus are generally served by local police.

Our priority is to work with students, faculty and staff to foster a safe environment for those working, visiting, and living within the campus community.

The University Police Department is located at 2 High St., Plymouth, New Hampshire.
