On behalf of the men and women of the University Park Police Department, I want to welcome you to our website. This site is one of the many ways we strive to assure that we are effectively communicating with the citizens we serve. To help make this effort a success, we will work to make this site as useful and as interactive as possible.
The University Park Police Department continues to work toward meeting the public safety needs of our community. Much has been made of the "new" community policing philosophy in recent years, but the fact is, historically the UPPD has always practiced community policing as evidenced by tremendous resident support.
We hope you take the time to look over our website and get to know more about your Police Department. We have a great staff of sworn and civilian employees who are always happy to answer any questions you may have concerning public safety.
Thank you for helping us make University Park a safe community, and a great place to live and work.

Thank you for your input.

For years, every February UPPD has provided residents with a recap on recent crime activity in University Park. This year, instead of a 12-month snapshot - the department’s crime analyst charted occurrences for a full range of crime categories from 2001 to 2021. During the past 20 years, as highlighted by print and online publications that independently report on the country’s safest communities, for cities of comparable size, University Park remains among the safest places to live and work.
