WHO WE ARE

The men and women of the TSU Police Department have been proudly serving and protecting the TSU community since 1947. Since its inception, the Department has grown exponentially and now functions and operates as a professional and modernized agency.

TSU Police Department is a progressive and professional law enforcement agency that is gaining recognition for the enhancements that have been made in keeping the campus community safe. The Department continually strives for excellence and plans to achieve accreditation through the Texas Police Chief Association (TPCA) this fiscal cycle to further legitimize the Department’s overall operations.

The Department’s foundation is built on a community policing philosophy and a strong emphasis is placed on building partnerships within the campus community to improve the quality of life on and around our campus community by working in concert with our community to prevent crime, disorder, and fear. While the Department’s enforcement actions are guided by the intelligence-led policing theory, it incorporates multiple policing strategies in its crime suppression and prevention efforts. The TSU Police Department truly embraces its responsibility to keep TSU safe for our community members to live, learn, work and play.
