The Trinity University Police Department is committed to creating a safe community in which to work, learn and live. Our state certified police officers, security officers and communications officers are here to assist you at Trinity. The University Police Department addresses all security concerns in a proactive and progressive manner ensuring our students, faculty and staff are provided with the best possible service. We provide 24 hour police service and emergency response by vehicle, bicycle and foot patrol. I encourage students to utilize our safety escort program known as "Tiger Tracks" during evening hours.
