Emergency Management

The UAPD Division of Emergency Management is responsible for creating a more resilient campus. We offer preparedness trainings on topics, such as preventing campus violence. We also assist in creating departmental or building specific emergency plans, such as Building Emergency Action Plans or Continuity of Operations Plans. If you are looking to grow your preparedness efforts, please contact the Emergency Management Division via email at uaem@uark.edu.


University of Arkansas Police Department has obtained international accreditation as a law enforcement agency through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA)

Commendations and Complaints

UAPD is proud to provide modern, quality law enforcement services to students, faculty, staff and visitors. In order for UAPD to continue providing the highest quality service, the performance of its employees must be closely monitored. The police department is sincerely interested in both rewarding above average performance and in taking corrective action in those instances where an employee fails to meet our standards. See how we have done over the years!
