In order to provide the best quality of service to the Southern Arkansas University community, the University Police Department and University Housing have partnered to educate and inform University residents on the topics of campus and personal safety. The Adopt-A-Cop Program developed from this partnership. Southern Arkansas University Police Officers take part in the Adopt-A-Cop Program and conduct periodic safety programming, spend extra time patrolling their assigned residential college/ area, and are readily available to speak with residents on safety related questions or concerns. Adopt-A-Cops work closely with the Residence Hall Directors, Residence Assistants, Community Assistants and Housing Staff of each residential college/ area on campus to assure resident safety. For further information on the Adopt-A-Cop program, contact the University Police Department at (870) 235-4100.
