UPD Help with Your Event

The University Police Department provides assistance with planning security resources for events.  It is the desire of the Department to work in collaboration with event sponsors and promoters in order to assure that our visitors to campus special events are cared for.


Requests for special event security must be submitted in writing to the Chief of Police a minimum of 21 days prior to date of event.

Staffing expenses associated with events may be charged back to the sponsoring individual or department. University Police Department charge back costs are based upon staffing, hours and equipment proposed for the event. Additional charges due to circumstances or incidents related to event, requiring additional University Police Department attention may affect final recharge total.

Twenty-four hour cancellation notice to the University Police Department is required prior to event staffing reporting times in order to prevent a three-hour minimum staff callback recharge for each staff assignment.
