Our department provides service to approximately 13,000 full and part-time students who attend classes at the Flagstaff campus. Another 2,400 faculty and staff, work on campus. We have approximately 100 buildings consisting of student residence halls or apartments; instructional and research facilities; and other student or staff support buildings. A network of eight miles of paved roads, pedestrian and bicycle paths, open space and other infrastructure complete the physical facilities of the campus. University property consists of 738 acres; slightly more than half has been developed.
Our patrol officers are charged with providing for the safety of all the students, faculty, employees, and guests who attend class, work, live, and visit our campus along with the security of the University's buildings and property. We are proud of our professional police officers, each of them receiving their peace officer certification from the Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training (AZPOST) Board. On average, they respond to more than 10,000 calls for service per year with the goal of providing quality assistance. We believe that by working in partnership with the community that we serve, and employing crime prevention and problem solving strategies, we can achieve this critical mission.
Our officers routinely attend state and federal sponsored law enforcement training programs, and we utilize some of the latest equipment to help us. For example, we use RADAR guns and the Speed Awareness Monitor to enforce speed limits on campus. Our fleet consists of marked police cruisers and four-wheel drive sport utility vehicles, which are equipped with 800 MHz mobile radios and in-car video cameras. Each of our officers is issued a ruggedized laptop computer that doubles as a mobile data computer in their patrol vehicle. Officers also patrol on bicycle.
