The Police Communications office is the nerve center and lifeline of the UT Arlington Police Department. Each police communications operator plays a vital role in the overall mission of the department by facilitating emergency and non-emergency response to the UT Arlington Community.

Police Communications operates 24 hours a day and acts as a primary point of contact or referral resource for:

  • EMS and fire services
  • Request for safety escorts
  • Elevator entrapments
  • Motorist assists
  • Response to Emergency Call Boxes (Code Blue Locations)

The Police Communication Center is staffed by full-time licensed communications operators. All police communication operators receive extensive training to include a 15 week field training program. Communication operators are licensed through the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE).
