The Rogers State University Police Department (RSUPD) is staffed by commissioned peace officers that meet the standards of the Oklahoma Council for Law Enforcement Education and Training (CLEET). RSUPD officers have the power to arrest or issue citations to any person violating the law on University property and we cooperate with local police authorities in the exercise of their responsibilities. Policies and regulations have been developed for the safety and convenience of everyone on the RSU campus.

Mission Statement

Protection. Service. Education. That’s our motto.

It is the mission of RSUPD to prevent crime and provide a safe higher educational environment for students, faculty, and staff by applying problem solving techniques designed to meet the needs of the public we serve. The department exists for one main purpose and that is to support the goals of the higher education community.

We believe the most effective manner of achieving these goals are to gain voluntary compliance of laws by all students, faculty, and staff through education and enforcement. As such, we demand that our law enforcement efforts be free from the application of threat, unnecessary use of force, or the administration of punishment.

One of our highest goals is to perform our duties in a manner that gains and maintains the approval and respect of all members of this university. We pledge to perform our duties in a consistent, fair manner without regard to race, sex, creed, religion, national origin, or social standing. We respect and practice sensitivity and understanding of the cultural and ethnic diversity of those that we serve.

The goal of the Rogers State University Police Department is to be recognized as the national milestone in innovative and professional policing. We characterized this quality by unyielding integrity, established excellence, and exceptional personnel.
