Police & Public Safety Staffing Request

Penn State Wilkes-Barre Employees: If you are planning an event outside of Penn State Wilkes-Barre’s normal operating hours that may require additional police and/or public safety officers, follow these steps:

  1. Enter the event in 25Live and be sure to select “Security Officer” as a resource in addition to any other resources that may be required.
  2. To determine if any, or how many, officers are needed, contact Commander Dale Osenbach to discuss the details. 
  3. If it is decided that additional police and/or public safety officers are needed (outside of the regularly scheduled officers), you must complete a Police/Safety Staffing Request Form (required by the University Police & Public Safety department as of November 2017). Please note:
    1. Be sure to list the number of officers agreed upon with Commander Osenbach.
    2. Requests must be for a two-hour minimum per officer.

Fees: Effective thru 06/30/18, departments requesting officers will not be charged a fee; however, this may change effective 07/01/18.

Outside Groups:  If you are an individual, group or organization not affiliated with Penn State Wilkes-Barre and you wish to request the use of campus facilities, please contact Sandy Race at 570-675-9252 or [email protected]. She will provide you with the required Indemnification Agreement, fee schedule, and any other information required for your event.
