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.

Police Chief Bill Mathes


The form at the bottom of this page is one way the public can provide the University Park Police Department with feedback on employee conduct and service. The Department will review and follow up on each citizen complaint or inquiry in a timely manner. I am dedicated to ensuring that each member of my Department acts professionally and responsibly. Thank you for your input.

Chief of Police
