Dear Campus Community,

The primary purpose of the Norfolk State University Police Department is to maintain a safe and secure environment and general and emergency services.

Campus safety is extremely important. The NSU Police Department requests your assistance in completing the Campus Safety Survey. This is your opportunity to provide feedback regarding campus safety issues from the perspective of a student at Norfolk State University.

Please take a few minutes to complete this short survey.

Chief Troy J. Covington
