Event Security Request

The department recognizes that at sporting, special events, and other times officers may be required to provide crowd and vehicular control and security. In order to address these needs, the department allows officers to work department-assigned paid details in addition to their scheduled tours of duty. While on detail, officers have the primary responsibility of enforcing laws and the rules and regulations of the university, and protecting the safety of the UAB community.

A police detail may be required by university policy. Contact Captain John Fields (205) 934-3999 or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . You may fax your request to 975-7297.

A ten (10) day advance notice is required for all detail requests. If the event is cancelled, it is the responsibility of the person who requested the detail to inform Captain Fields in a timely fashion, in order to avoid the assessment of costs.

Determinations of the need for and size of a police detail will be made by the Chief of Police or his designee in consultation with other university officials.

This is a request form only. Submitting a request does not guarantee approval or Police coverage.
