The University Police Department is located on the East side of campus, on Lionfish Drive and is open 24 hours a day. Police officers patrol the campus seven days a week, 365 days a year. The primary objective of the University Police Department is to provide a safe and secure environment within which students, faculty, and staff can live, learn, and work. The department is comprised of three divisions - Support Services, Investigations, and Patrol. The officers who staff these divisions are duly sworn, certified, armed, and empowered with the same authority as other local law enforcement officers in the State of North Carolina as regulated by the North Carolina Department of Justice.

Telecommunicators, program managers and command-level personnel provide administrative support for the various divisions. The department also employs full- and part-time security guards who assist community members by providing escorts and access to other departmental services.
