Annual Department Service Awards
The University Police Department has a long standing tradition of exemplary performance demonstrated by its police officers and civilian personnel.
Annually, the police department recognizes a police officer and civilian employee who have served the department with distinction by awarding the Officer of the Year and the Support Services Award. The recipients of these awards have shown great commitment to their duties and have served with outstanding loyalty and professionalism.
The University Police Department, Information Technology and the Office of Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management have been testing a new software program called Alertus Desktop™. This companion software will further enhance emergency ASUAlert notifications to the campus community. A small-scale test of the Alertus Desktop™ software was incorporated into the October campus-wide annual test of ASUAlert.
Alertus Desktop™ is an enterprise software solution for overriding computer displays across a network system with critical alert messages. When an alert is initiated, targeted client computers are overridden with a full-screen alert containing information regarding the nature of the campus emergency. Recipients simply click an acknowledgment button at the bottom of their screen to close the alert and simultaneously provide acknowledgment to campus safety officials who originated the notification.
The ability of Alertus Desktop™ to “push” emergency messages out to networked PCs will further assist campus emergency officials in disseminating important information and alerting individuals to specific campus emergencies. The new feature should be fully implemented and operational in early Spring 2013.
Annual Security and Fire Safety Report
The purpose of the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report is to provide our faculty, staff and students with campus safety information including crime and fire statistics. In addition, the report provides other valuable information pertaining to campus safety.
New 911 Lifeline Law Intended to Save Lives
A new law passed by the Texas Legislature in 2011 means that a person under 21 won’t be charged by the police for possessing or consuming alcohol if the person calls 911 because someone might have alcohol poisoning. Read more about the 911 Lifeline Policy.
SAFE. SECURE. FREE
The University Police Department has partnered with LeadsOnline to offer a free service called “Report It”. This online system allows users to enter and maintain secure records on the property they own. Users may store serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures and even scanned receipts that can easily be identified in the event of theft or loss. Your account can be accessed from anywhere via a secure site. “Report It” is searchable and even allows users the ability to print a full inventory of their property and valuables. This feature is extremely important for law enforcement should you be the victim of a theft.

Warnings will be issued by University Police, based on circumstances or events that affect the safety of the campus community. These types of incidents necessitate issuing a campus warning:
- Severe weather, including thunderstorms, tornados, snow/ice storms, flash floods or wildfires, which may require people to seek shelter or take other actions.
- Evacuations are normally implemented due to a threat emanating from within a facility, such as a gas leak, and may necessitate the evacuation of a larger area or the entire campus.
- Campus closures are implemented as a result of inclement weather or some other unforeseeable event that disrupts campus operations.
- Special alerts are issued for unusual circumstances or events that impact the campus community, such as a street detour or a parking lot closure.
