Clark University's approach to campus security is proactive, with University Police working to build a strong and interactive relationship with the students, faculty and staff they are committed to serving. The Clark University Police Department, headed by Chief Steve Goulet, includes 12 officers who are empowered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. As such, Clark University police are authorized within a limited geographic area to perform the same duties as any other police officer. They have the authority to wear firearms and to make arrests.

Besides the Clark campus, officers also patrol the surrounding streets. There, they work in cooperation with the Worcester City Police to protect off-campus students and property. They patrol by foot and by car 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They are all certified in CPR and other medical emergency techniques. They also are all required by Clark University to undergo special training in such areas as crisis intervention, diversity sensitivity, firearms use, medical emergencies, victim awareness, sexual assault and domestic violence.
