University of Maryland Police Department

Besides providing traditional law enforcement services, the University of Maryland Police Department at College Park is a leader in education -- both of community members and other law enforcement officers. To combat crime, UMPD offers many crime prevention programs that are available to community members at no cost.

UMPD is the only university police department in the State and one of a relatively few police departments State-wide to offer a fully certified Entry Level Police Training Academy. Instructors from UMPD who teach in the Academy not only train individuals who will work as officers at UMPD, but also officers from law enforcement jurisdictions from around the State. Our officers may also be found as instructors and lecturers in courses at UMCP and other institutions of higher education across the region.
