It’s been a great academic year on Rocky Top. Here’s a look at some of UTPD’s highlights!
UTPD Chief Troy Lane served students during a Pancake Supper in Hodges Library Galleria on April 25, 2019.
Corporal Tim Cutwright and other UTPD officers read to children at the UT Early Learning Center during Read Across America Day on March 1, 2019.
UTPD officers, along with the Knoxville Police Department, ran with the torch from near Pellissippi Parkway to Hardin Valley Academy where they handed it off to Special Olympics participants. The April 15 event kicked off the Knoxville Special Olympics.
UTPD offered its Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) course every month. The program, which teaches realistic self-defense tactics and techniques for women, is free and open to the public.
During the holiday season, UT Police gives back to some very special people in our community. Every December, we collect new toys for the children at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. We were excited to drop off another haul on December 19, 2018.
The university adopted LiveSafe as its new mobile safety app for the campus community in November 2018. The app turns mobile phones into a personal safety device for students, faculty and staff.
We celebrated Halloween with our explosives detection lion on October 31, 2018.
It’s football time in Tennessee! Our officers helped provide security for the games. During the September 15, 2018 game, some got acquainted with singer Chris Blue.
We welcomed several new officers into the UTPD family.
We went from two K9s to four!
