Welcome to Arkansas State University!

University Police

The mission of the University Police Department is to protect and serve the campus populace by enforcing University rules and regulations, federal and state laws, and to foster an atmosphere that is conducive to education and personal safety.

Crime Prevention is a Shared Responsibility


Crime prevention is the responsibility of everyone in the University community. It is important that all students and employees do their part. This includes locking doors of residence hall rooms, vehicles, and classrooms, walking at night in well lighted areas or with friends if possible, and contacting the police department to report any suspicious activity.

Together we can work to promote security on campus, and make your stay on campus an enjoyable one.

Law Enforcement Accreditation

CALEA Accreditation LogoThe Law Enforcement Accreditation Program was the first credentialing program established by CALEA. It was originally developed to address what was seen as a need to enhance law enforcement as a profession. That mission continues today with accreditation options for law enforcement agencies.
