History

University of Maryland Police Department

The University of Maryland (UM) Police Department can trace its lineage back to 1948. During their early years, members were known as security officers. Their official designation was changed to police officers in 1975.

Initially, the jurisdiction of the UM Police Department extended only to the University owned buildings and grounds. In June of 1984, an agreement was signed with the Baltimore Police Department giving the UM Police Department concurrent jurisdiction within the University boundaries, including the streets and sidewalks. In June of 1993, because of the expanding campus, a new concurrent jurisdiction agreement was signed with the Baltimore Police Department that encompasses the current campus. This agreement gives the UM Police Department the same authority and power as those of the Baltimore Police Department.

The Force has 56 sworn officers who are supported by 78 security officers, 7 police communication officers, and an administrative staff of 12. Newly appointed police officers undergo 750 hours of rigorous police training and a minimum of 18 hours of in-service training which is mandated by the Maryland Police Training Commission. 

It is the Department's mission to deliver quality crime control service that supports the University's mission of education, research, and service.


Pine Street Police Station

The Pine Street Police Station is located at 214 N. Pine Street and was built in 1878 as the new Western District Police Station that housed the Baltimore Police Department.
