Important News:



            The University of Texas at San Antonio Police Department is scheduled for an on-site assessment as part of a program to achieve accreditation by verifying it meets professional standards.

            Administered by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEAÒ), the accreditation program requires agencies to comply with state-of-the-art standards in four basic areas: policy and procedures, administration, operations, and support services.

            As part of the on-site assessment, agency employees and members of the community are invited to offer comments at a public information session, Monday, August 18, 2014, at 3:00 p.m. The session will be conducted in the Business Building University Room, Room 2.06.04, located at the UTSA Main Campus, One UTSA Circle, San Antonio, Texas.

            Agency employees and the public are also invited to offer comments by calling (210) 458-6780, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August  19, 2014.  Comments will be taken by the Assessment Team.

            Telephone comments as well as appearances at the public information session are limited to 10 minutes and must address the agency's ability to comply with CALEA's standards. A copy of the standards is available at the UTSA Police Department, Bosque Street Building, One UTSA Circle, San Antonio, Texas. Local contact is Accreditation Manager Lieutenant Robert Hudson, (210) 458-4421.
