Yale Safety Services

Yale Security and the Yale Police Department keep students and other community members safe. Yale has over 500 Blue Phones scattered around campus, and students can also use the LiveSafe app to turn their own cellular devices into a safety device. The Security office provides nighttime safe rides as well as walking escort services. Community members can also request Police and/or Security presence at events. The ID and Lockout Services provided by our Security Department are especially popular amongst undergraduate students.
