Your UO Police

I’m proud to lead the University of Oregon Police Department, the first and only accredited university law enforcement agency in Oregon. UOPD serves a diverse and vibrant college community of almost 30,000 faculty, staff and students.

At UOPD, we work every day to keep our community safe, to protect life and property, and to reduce crime and the fear of crime on and near our campus.

We are also committed to the concept of community policing and we work diligently to develop and maintain partnerships that allow us to understand the services that our community wants and needs from us.

I know that the future of public safety depends on listening to the community, being open to doing our work differently, and acknowledging that there is work that needs to be done.

Since I became Chief of Police here, I’ve been focused on developing and strengthening this department’s professional standards and training, as well as cultivating a culture of police transparency and accountability.

My team and I stand firmly behind these efforts and will continue this commitment to supporting a safe environment where students, employees, and visitors can learn, grow, and succeed.

Please explore our website to learn more about us, the many services we provide, and how our department is evolving. I welcome your input and feedback on ways we can further improve our collaborations and relationships with the community we serve.
