University of Maryland Police Force

The University of Maryland Police Force oversees campus security and the University police force has full law enforcement authority. Officers actively patrol all areas of the University around-the-clock—on foot, on bicycle, and in marked police vehicles. In addition to the commissioned police officers, the department uses nonsworn security officers to screen all people entering buildings and to report suspicious activity to the police. The University requires identification to enter all buildings on campus.

There are emergency phones in all parking garages and at other locations on campus. At night, major routes on campus are well lit. After hours, most campus buildings are locked; only people with access ID cards for those buildings may enter. The police offer safety and security presentations semiannually and on request.

Clery Campus Report

Each year the University of Maryland Police Force publishes the brochure "Safety Begins With You," which includes the latest crime statistics for the campus and surrounding community. You can find the University's most recent Clery Campus statistics here.
