Welcome to the Southern University at New Orleans Police Department (SUNOPD) web page, an internationally accredited law enforcement agency. Our goal is that with the help of the students, parents, faculty, staff, and community, we can create a productive and safe environment for everyone to learn and grow. SUNOPD's philosophy of community policing embodies the importance of cooperation, education, and police-community member partnerships.

SUNOPD serves and protects our campus community as a full-service law enforcement agency staffed by professional, highly trained, commissioned police officers 24-hours a day. The safe environment that SUNOPD provides helps ensure that the university's educational mission is fully realized.

SUNOPD is a one-stop-shop location for the students/staff and visitors to receive police services for crime reporting and investigation, emergency aid, assistance, and crisis intervention on campus. This site is your guide for emergency assistance, safety information, training classes, parking enforcement, and other services. It also provides access to our daily crime log and online forms to report crimes and register valuables.
