Captain Valerie Jackson, subordinate to the Deputy Chief of Police, is responsible for all sworn personnel assigned to patrol operations. The patrol division is staffed by four Sergeants, four Corporals, and approximately 30-35 Patrol Officers, all of which have graduated or recertified through the Alabama Police Officers Standards and Training Commission.
Our Department is a proactive department that has adopted the philosophy of “community policing”. This philosophy consists of various programs that address the underlying causes of crime on our campus.
Our officers respond to a wide variety of calls for service, approximately 93,000 annually, and patrol areas by a variety of transportation methods as patrol cars, mountain bikes, T-3 mobile electric transports, and motorcycles. These services include report writing, preliminary investigations, and security of university property.
