Message from Chief of Police





Dear community,

The commitment to law enforcement is a very challenging one on any university campus. Providing the University of Montevallo community with a safe and secure environment is our priority.

We are a service-orientated, professional department committed to the concept of community oriented policing. Community policing is a philosophy of becoming involved with the people we serve, building collaborative partnerships, and working together as a team.

Our goal is to support everyone in their educational pursuit by maintaining a safe community conducive to the spirit of learning.

We provide the University with a full-service public safety agency that is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We encourage prompt reporting of all crimes and suspicious activity to the Campus Police to assist us in providing the best possible service. Working as a team in our community can only enhance the quality of life on our campus. Please feel free to contact any member of the department with questions on services we provide.
