The UCA Police Department (UCAPD) is committed to providing quality service and protection to students, faculty, staff and visitors of the University of Central Arkansas. University police officers are law enforcement officers of the State of Arkansas and are professionally trained and certified by the Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Training.
The Department employs 35 full-time employees including 26 sworn, full-time police officers who have full investigative and arrest authority on the campus, contiguous streets and highways, and throughout the state of Arkansas when conducting official business of the university pursuant to A.C.A. 25-17-305.
University officers are trained to understand the needs of students, faculty, staff and visitors. Police officers, equipped with two-way radios, patrol the campus by vehicle, foot and bicycle 24 hours a day. The Department also maintains a 24-hour 911 Communications Center and a Parking and Traffic Services Office which provide additional public safety services to the academic community.
The UCA Police Department’s Clery Annual Security Report is the university’s “student right to know” report. A digital version is available online on the UCAPD web site. The UCAPD Crime, Incident and Activity Report is updated monthly and is available by contacting the UCAPD Administrative Services Commander at (501) 450-5739. UCAPD also publishes a daily activity/crime log, fire log and campus bulletins which can be accessed on the UCAPD Web site.
