On behalf of the dedicated team of professionals at the Montana State University Billings Police Department I would like to welcome you to the University Police Department web page. 

Our University Police Department is committed to providing a safe environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors to Montana State University Billings.  We accomplish this mission through a proactive, community oriented policing strategy where valued relationships are built with students, faculty, staff and other community partners including federal, state and local law enforcement. 

The University Police Department serves as the primary law enforcement agency for Montana State University Billings.  The University Police Department consists of a dedicated team of eight sworn police officers, one Clery Compliance Program Assistant, two office assistants and a number of student workers that assist with parking enforcement duties.  All University police officers receive their Public Safety Officer Standards and Training certification through the Montana Law Enforcement Academy.  Receiving the Oath of Office through Billings Municipal Court, Montana State University Billings has a Memorandum of Understanding with the City of Billings, granting University police officers city-wide jurisdiction.  The University Police Department responds to and investigates all complaints of criminal activity that occur on and around University owned or leased property. 

In addition, the University Police Department provides workplace safety training and education, fire safety and fire code inspections, emergency management coordination, and building safety inspections.   The University Police Department is dedicated to policing with honor, integrity, courtesy and professionalism. 

Additional information related to the University Police Department, along with parking information, can be found throughout our web page.  Please do not hesitate to contact the University Police Department whenever the need arises.  We are on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.
