The Stephen F. Austin State University Police Department Policy and Procedure Manual is an internal guideline for departmental employees and outlines departmental administration, operations, and procedures. 

In addition, all University Policy and Procedures are applicable to Police Department employees. The order of priority for interpreting policies shall be given first to University Policies and Procedures and then to Police Departmental Policies and Procedures. 

When in conflict, University Policies and Procedures shall prevail. However, Police Departmental Policies and Procedures may assist in interpreting and applying University Policies and Procedures to Police Department employees. 

This manual may be amended from time to time, in writing and/or verbally.
