Police and Fire Departments

The University of Alaska Fairbanks Police Department, established in 1991, is dedicated to enhancing campus safety. Located at the heart of the Troth Yeddha' Campus in Fairbanks, UAFPD is entrusted with safeguarding students, staff, faculty and visitors. Our sworn law enforcement officers prioritize professionalism and community engagement. UAFPD offers specialized services including a K9 program, firearm storage for on-campus residents and a Community Service Officer program, which is unique to our university environment. The CSO program at Troth Yeddha' campus is staffed by students and serves as a vital training ground for aspiring law enforcement professionals. 

The UAF Emergency Communications Center operates around the clock and is staffed by certified dispatchers dedicated to serving the University of Alaska Fairbanks community. Our team responds promptly to public safety calls on the Troth Yeddha' Campus, dispatching the appropriate resources and activating emergency alert systems when necessary. The ECC also plays a crucial role in maintaining Clery Act compliance by timely tracking of campus safety information.

The University Fire Department provides fire, rescue, EMS response and public assistance to the Troth Yeddha' Campus as well as the University Fire Service Area and EMS district. The department provides protection for a 26-square-mile area and more than 22,000 people. The department is nationally recognized and staffed full-time at two stations, one on campus and one in the fire service area. The department provides plan review and inspection services to the Fairbanks area and rural campuses. The Fire Department provides exceptional employment and career opportunities for students interested in a career in emergency services. The hands-on, interactive program develops highly skilled individuals able to perform all the duties of professional career firefighters.

The emergency telephone for both police and fire is 911. For more information, call 907-474-7721 for the Police Department, 907-474-5770 for the Fire Department, or visit the Police Department website or Fire Department website.
