The DBU Police Department exists to serve and protect the campus community with servanthood, professionalism, vigilance, and excellence, thus enhancing the vibrant campus life and providing a safe and secure Christ-centered learning environment. The DBU Police Department provides the University community with law enforcement, emergency services, community policing, campus crime prevention, crisis intervention, video surveillance, campus patrol, tactical operations, and traffic/parking enforcement.

What is SWAT?
SWAT stands for Student Welcome and Transition. It is a Welcome Week for incoming freshmen and transfer students. The students are allowed to move in early, and they also have assistance in moving. This is great opportunity for the students to get to know each other before classes begin. There are lots of great activities planned by our Student Life staff. The SWAT dates for 2019 are August 21-24.
