The University Police Department is staffed primarily by certified, sworn police officers. Each officer undergoes training at a MS Certified Law Enforcement Training Academy. Once that is completed, each officer goes through advanced training to meet the standards of CALEA. This includes advanced weapon training, report writing, investigative techniques, etc.

In order to be employed as a police officer one must be able to pass a background check and an oral interview.

In a addition, one of the following is required:

  • A current Mississippi law enforcement officers professional certificate

  • Prior law enforcement certification, with the ability to complete refresher training

  • Ability to complete requirements to enter and complete a basic law enforcement academy

The University Police Department hires persons with and without law enforcement experience as police officers. Those hired without law enforcement experience will be sent to a police academy at Camp Shelby or Pearl, Mississippi.
