On behalf of SFA University Police Department personnel, I would like to welcome you to our website. Our department provides comprehensive police, parking and emergency management services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The UPD building is located at 232 E. College Street and the Parking and Traffic Office is located at 1925 Wilson Drive in the first floor of the Wilson Drive Parking Garage.

To report an emergency, call 911 or utilize our Emergency Call Boxes located throughout the campus. To report a non-emergency situation, call 936-468-2608. To request other services, please email us or call. Our officers are commissioned Peace Officers with the State of Texas. They are obligated to enforce all federal, state, and local laws in addition to the university rules and regulations.

The SFA UPD has an excellent working relationship with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, to enhance safety and security within our community. We also maintain a close liaison with the Physical Plant, Residence Life, Safety, Student Life and other key university personnel to help keep our campus as safe and secure as reasonably possible. The mission of the UPD is to work with you to make our university a safe place in which to live, work and study. This requires police-community teamwork. You can do your part by becoming involved in our police community crime prevention activities. The UPD has implemented many progressive programs to help accomplish its mission. I welcome your comments and suggestions regarding the department, departmental personnel and our services. We look forward to being of assistance to you during your stay at SFA.
