Event Staffing Requests

Changes For Special Event Staffing FY2012 

The police and security services rates will change for staffing special events effective FY2012.  Events held on or before August 31, 2011 will continue to be charged a $30/hour rate for either a Police Officer or Non-Commissioned Uniformed Personnel to staff the event at a three hour minimum.  Effective September 1st, 2011 the required minimum charge for staffing an event will be reduced to two hours for each assigned.  The rates will be $45/hour for each assigned Police Officer, and $30/hour for Non-Commissioned Uniformed Personnel providing event police and security services.
With this rate adjustment, many events held by orgnizations and offices may realize a cost savings or no cost increase on police and security services for staffing events.  Events which require staffing above two hours, will realize a cost increase in correlation to the new rates.
The University of Texas Pan American Police Department (UTPAPD) is responsible for providing and coordinating police and security service on all UTPA owned and leased property within statutory jurisdiction. Other law enforcement agencies and contract security services may not be used without prior approval by the UTPAPD. 
University Departments planning special events and/or festivals, which are to be hosted on University owned property, must contact the UTPAPD to assess, coordinate police, security needs and access to the location where the event is taking place.
