Ensuring the safety and security of our community is paramount at Duke University Health System. Our dedicated team at the Duke University Police Department works tirelessly to maintain a safe and secure environment across our three esteemed hospitals: Duke University Hospital, Duke Regional Hospital, and Duke Raleigh Hospital.

We understand that a secure environment is not just a necessity but a fundamental pillar in enabling our hospitals to focus wholeheartedly on delivering exceptional patient care. Our police and security officers are on duty around the clock, ready to respond promptly to any calls for assistance from our valued staff, faculty, students, patients, and visitors.

Beyond just emergency response, our services extend to providing escorts to parking lots and other Duke properties, offering minor vehicle assistance, and assisting in locating lost items. These efforts are a testament to our unwavering commitment to the well-being of everyone who walks through our doors.

Thank you for entrusting us with your safety and security as Duke University Health System continues to uphold the highest standards of care.
