From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The University of Texas at Houston Police Department is a full service Police Department that serves the communities of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. UTPD-Houston patrols the Texas Medical Center and has property in surrounding counties.

UTPD-Houston was the first University Police Department in the State of Texas to receive CALEA certification. It currently has 300+ employees making it one of the largest University Police in the State and one of the largest agencies in Harris County. The agency employs civilian staff (technical service, guards, dispatchers) and Police Officers. The Police Officers are TCLEOSE certified and attend a six month academy in Austin, TX at the University of Texas Police Academy.

As with any University Police agency the Police Officers have jurisdiction in any county within the State of Texas in which the University of Texas has property that is owned, leased, rented, or otherwise under the control of the institution.

The current Chief of Police is William Adcox who formerly served with the El Paso PD and University of Texas at El Paso.
