The University employs a staff of full-time, commissioned police officers who maintain a law enforcement presence around the clock. In or out of uniform, these officers possess all authority granted to peace officers under state law. Each commissioned officer is Louisiana P.O.S.T. certified from a law enforcement training program. When they see or learn of crimes, officers will conduct the investigation, make arrests and work with local authorities as the case passes through the judicial system.
The LSUS Police Department also monitors parking areas and investigates traffic accidents. Questions concerning the operation and parking of motor vehicles should be directed to an officer upon receiving an LSUS parking decal. Detailed traffic regulations are printed in the Student Handbook, in brochures available at registration, provided with your decal at the Cashier's desk, or found online. Details regarding the appeal process for citations can also be found there as well.
Emergencies: In an emergency, LSUS Police can be contacted at 318-797-5082 from a campus phone or at 318-455-5497 from any other phone. There are also emergency phones in each elevator and emergency call boxes throughout campus which connect directly to the LSUS Police Department. An Emergency Procedures booklet is available online.
