TU Security collaborates with local law enforcement as necessary.
Campus Security employs a full-time force of 20 security officers. Campus security works closely with the Tulsa Police Department and other law enforcement agencies as necessary.
Officers conduct foot and vehicular patrols of the campus and residence hall areas 24 hours a day.
Potential criminal actions and other emergencies on campus can be reported by any student, faculty member, or employee of the University by dialing campus extension 5555 anytime of the day.
