The Position
University Police Officers perform law enforcement duties to protect the Nevada System of Higher Education employees, students, and the general public.
Incumbents possess a degree of knowledge and proficiency sufficient to perform work independently with little or no additional training.
The University of Nevada Las Vegas Police Department is a full service Police Department. University Police Officers are armed, uniformed, and sworn police officers who are certified under the laws of the State of Nevada. They serve as first responders and the primary law enforcement department responsible for providing public safety and police services for the University community. UNLV Police Officers perform the same law enforcement activities 24 hours a day, 365 days a year as those of municipal, county, and state law enforcement agencies. They enforce all federal, state, local laws and ordinances within the jurisdiction of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The University Police Department embraces the philosophy of Community Oriented Policing through partnerships and collaboration with our service community. UNLV Police Officers patrol the campuses and maintain several inter-local agreements with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and other state police agencies. This allows University Police Officers to exercise their police powers and authority off campus and at the University approved fraternities, sororities, and adjacent properties.
