Greetings From Chief Tom A. Hain

Chief At Desk

Welcome to the University of Texas of the Permian Basin Police Department's homepage. Whether you are a student, faculty, staff or guest to the University, we strive to make your stay on campus safe and pleasant. Utilizing our homepage to gather information prior to arriving on campus or to keep updated on our current activities is just one way we make our services available to you. On our main page are links to resources for Students, Faculty and Staff, and Visitors to our campus.

The University Police Department is comprised of 13 licensed police officers, who are certified by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education. Our non-licensed guards work to enhance the services we provide by assisting in calls for service, traffic and parking control, building checks, and special events. The Department employs other professionals in our Information Center and as administrative support staff.

The Department provides police services on campus 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our police officers are empowered to investigate all calls for service, criminal and non-criminal, on campus. We work closely with all local law enforcement agencies in order to provide a safe environment, both at UTPB and the CEED facility. Please feel free to browse our site and if you have any questions or feedback on how we can best serve you, send us an email or stop by the administration offices (Mesa Building Room 1103) and visit with a supervisor.

Thank you,
Tom A. Hain Chief of Police
