Serving Our Community
UCD's foundational focus is on the physical world, and we work to maintain clean and safe streets.
Our forty-two Public Safety Ambassadors serve as a highly visible deterrent to crime, patrolling University City streets each day from 10am to 3am, in cooperation with the Philadelphia, Penn and Drexel Police departments, and security forces from Drexel University and the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia.
Our twenty-five Public Space Maintenance (PSM) employees work seven days a week to clean and enhance more than 160 commercial and residential blocks, including the maintenance of nearly 150 public trash cans. PSM partners with local residents to keep the community clean and personal and public property maintained.
Together, Safety Ambassadors and PSM provide a secure, welcoming University City for residents, employees, students and visitors.
