The Tulane University Police Department is a full-service law enforcement agency that provides police services to the Uptown Campus, the Downtown Medical Center Campus and the National Primate Research Center located in Covington. We strive to adhere to the best practices including nationally recognized standards for the delivery of police services and are in the process of seeking accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).

At Tulane University, we believe that safety is a shared responsibility shared among the police department, students, staff, and faculty. Our mission is to assist the university community in providing a safe and secure environment in which to learn, live, and work. We accomplish this by providing a variety of police services that are explained throughout this Webster. We believe in practicing the principles of community policing and working with departments throughout the university to help us provide a safe campus environment.
