Ride Along with UPD at TXST

UPD is excited to engage with Texas State University students, faculty and staff through our Ride-Along opportunities 

Engagement opportunities, especially those that feature a firsthand experience with UPD patrol officers at Texas State foster safety on campus. We look forward to sharing our time with you while answering questions as you experience the many facets of university policing at TXST. 

  • Each ride-along is four to six hours.
  • Welcoming patrol officers share expertise.
  • UPD Implements social distancing measures
  • Riders come away with a greater understanding of the role of UPD at TXST.
