Organizational Structure

The agency's authorized strength is twenty-six police officers of various ranks, twelve non-commissioned employees, and various student employees. Police Services is comprised of two units. Each unit is further divided into functional components. Here's a somewhat simplified organization chart:

  • Office of the Chief

Investigations Section: The Investigations Section is responsible for the in-depth investigation of crimes and provides investigative support to the Patrol Section. Members assigned to this organization normally do not wear uniforms.

  • Police and Auxiliary Operations Unit

This unit is primarily responsible for the protection of, and provision of services to, the university community.

Patrol : The Patrol Section is the largest in the agency and is responsible for responding to calls for service and law enforcement. Most of the uniformed members of the organization are assigned to this section.

Communications : Essentially, the Communications Section provides the primary interface between the public and the organization. Dispatchers assigned to Communications answer emergency and non-emergency telephones and communicate via radio and computer.

Records : The Records Section maintains the agency's records and is responsible for reporting crime data to federal and state authorities. Records also fills requests from the public for copies of reports.

Crime Prevention : Police Services works proactively to minimize crime on campus. Crime prevention activities include security surveys, management of alarm systems, speaking engagements, and other activities intended to minimize the occurrence of crime.

Training: Training is a high priority activity. A variety of training programs are conducted each year for the benefit of Police Services employees and those from area agencies. The Staff Lieutenant manages these activities.
