We are a full-service Police Department providing 24-hour patrol coverage, investigative services, and crime prevention strategies. We have seven licensed, commissioned Police Officers and two Security Officers. It is our University Police Team goal to provide a safe place for our students, faculty, staff, and guests above all other priorities.

You can report crimes to the University Police Department 24-hours a day, seven days a week, by dialing 903-334-6611, or by using a Blue Boy emergency phone in the main parking lot or the Bringle Lake Village parking lot. You may also contact the Texarkana Texas Police Department by dialing 911. Our Administrative Offices are located in the Central Plant, and are staffed Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm.
