The University of Tennessee Police Department is at the heart of safety on campus. With 62 fully commissioned officers, we work 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to serve UT and the surrounding community. We provide professional police services and offer education and outreach programs.

UTPD is accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators and the Tennessee Law Enforcement Accreditation Commission.

These accreditations demonstrate the department’s high standards and commitment to promoting student safety and accountability through programming, information sharing and cooperation.


The Rape Aggression Defense System program teaches women easy-to-learn, effective and realistic self-defense tactics and techniques. It is free and open to the public.
