Field Services provides law enforcement services to the main campus, UNT Discovery Park, as well as the surrounding area. These services include, but are not limited to, responding to calls for service, apprehending criminal suspects, writing reports, traffic enforcement, and conducting preliminary investigations.
Officers patrol in both marked and unmarked vehicles, on bicycle, and on foot. Our vehicles are equipped with state of the art equipment to include multi-channel scanning radios, mobile data terminals, radar and laser speed detection, digital mobile video, and forward looking infrared cameras.
