UO Police Chief Matt Carmichael and his students assistants

Your UO Police

The University of Oregon Police Department’s goal is to help create an exceptionally safe, secure campus for students and faculty to focus intently on excellent academics, research and public service. We promote an inclusive, respectful environment for our global campus, and protect the free and civil exchange of ideas.

We are police on campus, for campus. How can we help you?

Matthew Carmichael, Chief of Police

I wanted to share some information about the recent issue of off-campus crime, and how law enforcement is responding, as well as steps students can take to protect themselves. Besides being the chief of police, I'm also a parent of two UO students. Student safety is my absolute priority.
