The University Police Department consists of a dedicated team of eight sworn police
officers, one Clery Act specialist, one office assistant, a parking enforcement officer,
and a number of student workers that assist with parking enforcement duties.

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 adjacent to university-owned or leased property.
In addition, the University Police Department provides workplace safety training and
education, fire safety and fire code inspections, and emergency management coordination.
The University Police Department is dedicated to policing with professionalism, integrity,
respect, and collaboration.
