Paul Chapa, Chief of Trinity Police

The Trinity University Police Department is committed to creating a safe community in which to work, learn, and live. Our state-certified police officers and communications officers are here to assist you.

The University Police Department addresses security concerns in a proactive and progressive manner ensuring that our students, faculty, and staff are provided with the best possible service. We provide 24-hour police service and emergency response by vehicle, bicycle, and foot patrol.

I encourage students to utilize our safety escort program known as Tiger Tracks during evening hours and subscribe to our new mobile app ELERTS. Working together as a community, we will continue to promote safety and security at Trinity.
