Message from Chief

Utah Tech Police Department works tirelessly with University Safety and Risk Management to serve and protect the Trailblazer community and those who visit our campus. We are dedicated to service and providing a safe and secure environment for all.

The Utah Tech Police Department is comprised of highly trained officers who work in collaboration with our community and law enforcement partners to provide the highest level of professionalism and service. As a police department, we implement best practices and hold both state and international accreditation through the Utah Chiefs of Police Association (UCOPA) and the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACLEA). We believe professional development for our police department is critical in our efforts to serve the UT community.

I am honored and privileged to serve as your Interim Chief of Police and I look forward to continuing to build a culture of inclusion and collaboration while in your service. As a reminder, we work in partnership with the campus community so if you see something, say something.

Thank you,


Ron Bridge
Chief of Police/Director of Public Safety
Utah Tech University
