Department Description:

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Police Department is a service agency dedicated to the safety and security of the University community. The Director of Public Safety reports to the Associate Vice Chancellor for Campus Safety & Risk Management. The delivery of services centers around one primary concern: “Protecting North Carolina’s Future.” This commitment includes the provision of services to the community when crimes occur, as well as the prevention of crime. The employees of the Department of Public Safety continue to work in partnership with the community to deliver the finest possible services available. It is important to recognize that the services provided by this department are in support of a campus that was identified in the Terrorism Assessment Tool used by Orange County as the top designation in Orange County for terrorist attacks. Also, the Smith Center was designated for a site evaluation by the National Guard as part of their assessment of the state for terrorism activity. Emergency and Risk recovery plans are in place to ensure Public Safety’s services are not interrupted in the event of natural or man-made disasters. Additional complexities of the Department of Public Safety include a 911 Communications Center, which serves as back-up to Orange County Emergency Management’s 911 Communications as the second and only additional point of dispatch countywide. In addition to about 40,000 university students, faculty, and staff, the presence of a major medical center certified a Level 1 Trauma Center and major sporting events increases the population served to millions each year.
The department is nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). The UNC Chapel Hill Department of Public Safety was the first nationally accredited university law enforcement agency in the state, and one of only 43 in the country.
The department consists of about 110 permanent employees including 53 sworn law enforcement officers, and about 85 temporary employees including 30 sworn reserve police officers and about 40 contract security guards. The Operating Budget is approximately $8 million per year.
