Uniformed Student Patrol Officers
Uniformed Student Patrol Officers (security personnel) assist law enforcement staff by detecting suspicious activity or safety concerns and notifying dispatch for an appropriate response. They are also assigned to event security details, foot and vehicle patrol, building security duties, traffic control and parking enforcement. This is an excellent job environment for the college student seeking a career in Criminal Justice or related field.
Many former student officers have graduated and obtained jobs in law enforcement; including with the University Police Department, South Dakota Highway Patrol, Department of Criminal Investigation and many Federal, local and county agencies.
