Our mission is to create and maintain a safe and secure environment for our students, faculty, staff, patients and visitors. We do this through active patrols, security and fire/life safety assessments, staffing posts in campus facilities, training and professional development, oversight of building access control, alarm systems and building cooperative relationships with other law-enforcement and security agencies. 

EVMS complies with the Department of Education's Jeanne Clery Act and collects, maintains and publishes crime and safety information that is available to the public. The department publishes the Annual Security/Fire Safety Report Oct 1. This report contains crime statistics for the campus community for a three-year running period and information about EVMS Police & Public Safety; EVMS emergency and security policies; crime reporting and prevention; sexual assault; fire safety at EVMS' campus housing, Hague Club Apartments; and other security/safety topics of concern to the EVMS community. A CSA (Campus Security Authority) needs to file a report with EVMS Police when he or she becomes aware of information that a crime incident is occurring or may have occurred on campus or in a non-campus location. If the incident is happening and constitutes an emergency, dial 911 or 757.446.5911 immediately. If it is information about a crime that is not currently in progress, contact EVMS Police at 757.446.5911, provide as much information as possible (approximate date and time of occurrence, location and individuals involved). To obtain a paper copy of Annual Security/Fire Safety Report, email Police & Public Safety. Please take time to view the 2018 Annual Security/Fire Safety Report for a comprehensive overview of related services, policies and data. Students residing in Hague Club Apartments who want to designate a confidential emergency contact in the event you are reported missing, please fill out the Confidential Contact Form
