Welcome from the Chief

Welcome to the University of Minnesota Police Department (UMPD) Web site. The UMPD is a sworn and licensed agency within the Minnesota law enforcement profession. UMPD has been serving the campus community for over 70 years. We offer a full range of police services including emergency response services, the enforcement of laws and ordinances, investigations, crime prevention and education, student monitor and escort services, and parking enforcement.

We are building partnerships on our Twin Cities campuses and in the Minnesota communities where the University resides to maximize public safety. We strive to make the University a place where people can teach, learn, conduct research, work, visit, and recreate, free from fear for their personal safety and well being. The men and women of the UMPD are dedicated to serving with courtesy, professionalism, and respect. We are honored to be granted the public trust and believe we are privileged to be of service.

As you review our Web site and the services we offer, please feel free to contact us if we can be of service, via e-mail, at 612-624-COPS (2677) for non-emergencies, or 9-1-1 from any on campus location for emergency response. We wish to be responsive and meet your needs, any suggestions regarding our services or Web site content is welcomed and appreciated.
