Special Event Hiring

The Support Services division is responsible for coordinating and staffing police officers for special events.  Only UMPD police officers can work functions and events on the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus.  Due to the size of some events, UMPD does hire part time officers to work specific events, most notably football games and concerts at TCF Bank Stadium.  Part time officers are hired by UMPD but are employed through other police agencies.  Part time officers wear UMPD uniforms while they are working special events.  Note: during some events on campus, UMPD partners with area agencies for police coverage.  During these events, UMPD is coordinating the event, but those officers are working for their home agencies.
