UAPD patrol officers are charged with providing for the safety of all the students, faculty, staff and guests who attend class, work, live and visit our campus, and with the security of university buildings and property. We are proud of our professional police officers. Each of them received their certification from the Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Training. We believe that by working in partnership with the community we serve and by employing crime prevention and problem solving strategies we can achieve this critical mission.
