The University Police Department provides police and security services for LSU Health Shreveport. The safety and security of our students, faculty, employees, patients, and visitors here at LSU Health are of utmost importance.  The University Police Department, in conjunction with the other LSU Health Shreveport departments, strives to provide a safe campus.
