Message from the Chief

Nicole Collins

The East Tennessee State University Departmentof Public Safety (ETSU DPS) is committed to   providing ETSU with a safe and secure environment conducive to the goals of education and research. Our   campus is like a little city within a city, therefore it is   imperative that we work in partnership to prevent crime and   solve problems that affect students, faculty, and staff   because the safety and security of the University is the combined responsibility of the entire ETSU community.

The professional staff of Department of Public Safety is dedicated to serving and protecting our ETSU community. Our goal is to provide an open exchange of information that   will help us better serve you the students, staff, and faculty of ETSU. The ETSU law enforcement officers are professionally trained to perform duties in an equitable   manner.

This website and the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (ASFSR) provides you with an overview of our operations, including emergency procedures, policies, parking regulations,   programs, and services. I encourage you to familiarize yourself with the resources and   information provided as they are tools that will help keep you safe on campus.

Please feel free to contact us with your concerns, interests, and suggestions.

Nicole Collins
Chief of Police
