The Miami University Police Department (MUPD) is composed of 29 sworn police officers commissioned by the State of Ohio, 6 communication specialists and 4 civilian support staff. Our mission is to maintain a safe community through collaboration, service, protection and enforcement with the goal of achieving a collective vision for a better future.

The Miami University Police Department headquarters is located at 4945 Oxford-Trenton Road (State Route 73) across from the John W. Brown Stables. MUPD maintains four substations on the Oxford Campus which allows campus police to be more accessible and available to meet and interact with students. At the substations students can file police reports, complete witness statements or ask questions and speak with members of campus police. Officers are not specifically assigned to the substations, but are encouraged to come in during their regular shifts. Because officers are not guaranteed to be in the substations at all times, people are urged to call 911 if there is an emergency.
