Uniform Patrol is the most visible service of the police department and operates marked patrol cars 24-hours a day. The division responds to the parking decks, residence halls, academic, administrative and research buildings. They investigate accidents, respond to reports of crime, and engage in preventative patrol. They are the first to respond to your calls for assistance.
Uniform Patrol has more than 20 police officers who patrol more than 78,000 miles each year and answer approximately 15,000 calls. These officers, all certified by the State of Georgia as peace officers, have full authority to enforce all federal, state and county laws; make arrests; issue traffic citations; and enforce Emory University regulations.
In addition to the police officers, the division also has four Community Services Officers. These security officers provide night time building security, motorist assistance services and security escorts throughout the main campus.
Uniform Patrol also utilizes Bike Patrol officers. They are uniformed police officers who patrol the Emory community on marked mountain bikes. These officers are more accessible and often have greater mobility than officers in cars, and work closely with the various Crime Prevention programs to assist the Emory Community.
