Welcome from the Chief

Chief Anthony Williams

Chief Anthony Williams

First, let me begin by thanking you for accessing the Southern Arkansas University Police Department’s website.  As the System’s Chief of Police it is indeed an honor to become a member of such a fine institution, and more so, the leader of a campus law enforcement agency committed to the personal safety and security of all campus stakeholders.

Here at Southern Arkansas University your police department is proud to provide the campus system with the highest degree of public safety service. Our dedicated group of officers is cognizant of the unique duties and challenges associated with campus policing and will utilize the best recognized policing practices to ensure a positive public safety experience.

Our sole mission is the protection of you and the important assets of the Southern Arkansas University system. However, each person on campus with a vested interest in Southern Arkansas University has definitive responsibilities in exercising good judgment, becoming informed, and practicing basic crime prevention techniques. Always be familiar of your surroundings and secure your property to mitigate the opportunity for theft.

The University is a higher education learning environment, and social responsibility is viewed as an essential component of personal safety. The Southern Arkansas University Police Department in partnership with the Office of Student Services will vigorously address any issue that causes any stakeholder to feel less than comfortable while on any of member campuses.

I invite you to continue exploring our website for services provided by our campus law enforcement agency. If you have any ideas about new public safety services, initiatives, training, or programs that would be beneficial to the Southern Arkansas University community, please feel free to contact the Office of the Chief Police.
