About NDPD


The University of Notre Dame Police Department, located in Hammes Mowbray Hall, just east of the Power Plant, is fully authorized as a police agency by the State of Indiana. The department employs both sworn police officers and non-sworn campus safety personnel, who patrol campus, respond to emergencies, and ensure the safety of the Notre Dame campus. Additional staff members work as security monitors or in other support positions in the department. Notre Dame police officers complete state mandated training requirements established for law enforcement officers and have the same legal authority as any other police officer in Indiana. Notre Dame Police Department staff frequently work with city, county, state and federal law enforcement authorities. Agencies cooperate whenever possible on investigations and crime prevention programs to provide the best possible police services to our campus and local communities. Notre Dame Police Department staff offer an array of other services for the community. When you don’t know who to call, feel free to contact us for assistance.
