Cheyney University employs a 24-hour Police and Security force to serve, protect, and educate the campus community.
The Cheyney Police Department is staffed by dedicated, sworn police officers who have received the same required training as municipal police officers throughout Pennsylvania. Our officers on participate in annual police update training under PA Act 180.
Our officers patrol all of the buildings on campus around the clock, every day of the year, and not only respond to reported criminal incidents, but also handle vehicle accidents, EMS incidents and a variety of service calls.
The Cheyney Police Department works very closely with surrounding municipal police departments daily to provide for a safe and secure environment throughout the entire community. By working with the campus Office of Judicial Affairs, they help to hold students accountable for behavior both on and off campus.
During special events and activities, Cheyney supplements our full-time police force with contractual security to help ensure a safe, enjoyable experience.

Public Forum Policy Information
The primary function of Cheyney University of Pennsylvania is for the education and development of students. To fulfill its educational mission, the University must respect and uphold the full panoply of, sometimes conflicting, rights of students, staff, and faculty granted by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution and Article I, Section 7 of the Pennsylvania Constitution. In light of the foregoing, the University supports the rights of students, staff, and faculty to individually and collectively engage in Expressive Activity. Such rights are equally extended to other University Community Members including individuals, Registered Student Organizations, university departments, and the Guests of student groups or university departments.
This policy establishes guidelines to assure that expressive activities do not unreasonably interfere with University Operations, undermine the protected speech of others, present a risk of harm to others or University Property. Importantly, through this policy, the University regulates the time, place, and manner of speech in a content-neutral manner as a legitimate way to fulfill its educational mission.
