Campus Security OfficeThe University of St. Thomas Police Department (USTPD) supports the mission of UST by providing a safe and secure campus environment through professional law enforcement service, emergency management, crime prevention and awareness programs.

Services

The USTPD carries out its support of UST mission through three strategic ways:

  1. Integrity – Sound conduct by police improves community interactions, enhances communication, and promotes shared responsibility for addressing crime and disorder.

“Every action we take, every interaction with a citizen, every moment we’re visible is a commercial for our profession.”

Terry Hillard, former Superintendent of the Chicago Police Department


  1. Determination- The ability to show willingness and to achieve success and overcome quandaries, such as fatigue and frustration. USTPD will be determined to have success by short-term goals or long term objectives even when setbacks are in our way.
  2. Respect-
    1. Showing kindness and courtesy to the community we serve
    2. Be polite even when others are not
    3. Don’t discriminate- Be respectful to everyone- not just people we know or those we perceive as having a higher status than us.

The University of St. Thomas Police Department is built on the IDR principles, so we can better serve the UST community.
