Community Outreach

Questions about crime on campus? Would you like a Police Officer to be involved in a panel discussion your facilitating? The Community Engagement Team at the University of Minnesota Police Department can provide services for community events.

The Community Engagement Team (CET) at the UMPD participates in community meetings, crime safety-presentations, panel discussions, parent orientations, student orientations and National Night Out. The Police Department is interested in maintaining a strong connection to the community through dialogue and partnership.

You can request a Police Officer for events regarding community crime problems, personal safety or policing by filling out a request form. We will try to accommodate as many requests as possible depending on our staffing levels. We would appreciate that these requests be made at least three or more weeks in advance. The function of this request is for community engagement and not event security.
