It is the mission of the Police and Public Safety Department to establish a social and physical environment wherein people
on all campus locations are free from fear, intimidation, harassment, and hereby,
contribute to the quality and excellence of University of Arkansas - Pulaski
Technical College. To
fulfill this mission, the Police Department has an obligation to develop and
maintain performance standards that will ensure our functions are performed in
an effective, efficient, consistent and fair manner.
We believe that to accomplish our mission of providing a secure atmosphere conducive to the education, research, employment and daily community lifestyles of the institution, the Police Department must work in conjunction with our faculty and students to ensure this will happen. Every student, faculty, staff member and visitor has the individual responsibility to be aware of their personal safety, to utilize college resources, to make positive choices and use common sense. We recognize that we can accomplish our mission only with the support and trust of the college community and through partnering with the community to carry out our programs.
All UA-PTC officers are ALETA certified police officers who have undergone extensive training and have the same powers as other certified law enforcement officers in the State of Arkansas. Our primary jurisdictions are the locations owned and operated by University of Arkansas - Pulaski Technical College.
In closing, please do not hesitate to ask for assistance or to stop one of our officers just to say “hello” when you see them walking on one of our campus locations. If we can assist any student, staff, faculty or visitor with problems or concerns, I encourage you to contact us.
In speaking on behalf of my staff, it is a our pleasure to serve and protect each administrator, faculty member, staff and student at University of Arkansas - Pulaski Technical College.

Director, Police and Public Safety
